Baba Ramdev aims at making Patanjali bigger

Statesman News Service | Dehradun |

Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev has big plans for the Patanjali Yogpeeth, including developing it as a bigger education centre than Nalanda and Takshshila.

Ramdev also plans to make charitable endowments of Rs 1 lakh crore in the near future. He said his company has contributed about Rs 11,000 crore to charity and aims at making a higher contribution for social welfare and other causes.

Ramdev is working on making Patanjali Yogpeeth a major centre for education. Speaking at the 23rd foundation day of the Yogpeeth at Haridwar on Friday, he said, “In the next 10-15 years Patanjali Yogpeeth will become a bigger education centre than Nalanda and Takshshila, where one lakh students will study. The construction of ‘Vidhya Sankul’ is going on and it will get ready by mid 2018. It can accommodate 10,000 students.”

Ramdev mocked at the 50 food parks which were opened with Central government subsidy. “There is no trace of the 50 food parks, whereas Patanjali Yogpeeth has opened the biggest food park of the world. That’s why Patanjali is rated as the most trusted brand in the FMGC category among 11,000 companies,” he said.
