In what may surprise many, Baba Ramdev today said he may sell petrol, diesel for Rs 35-40 per litre. But on one condition. Speaking at 'NDTV Yuva'event, the Yoga Guru-turned entrepreneur said, "If the government lets me, and gives some relief in tax, I can give petrol diesel to India at Rs 35-45 per litre."
Petrol and diesel prices have gone up by several rupees in the last two-three months, hurting the common man. External factors are believed to be the main reason behind the recent fuel price hike. But what has irked many is the government's refusal for a knee-jerk reaction to tame rising prices.
In the run-up to elections 2019, the fuel price hike has also become a political issue. Ramdev said, "The rising prices of things can cost the Modi government very dearly. He will have to act."
The Patanjali co-founder, however, praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the "good work", wondering why some questions are being raised about the rafale deal between Indian and French governments. Claiming himself to be a "Scientific Sanyasi", Ramdev also said that he has withdrawn himself politically and he is not with any one particular party but for all.
Baba Ramdev's Patanjali Ayurved has forayed into many sectors including FFCG, medicine, dairy. The company plans to enter the garment sector and also tech through a WhatsApp-like chat app.
