It may be a Ashok Gehlot government plan to take revenge from Baba Ramdev being pro Modi. more  
This is just to bring down the sales of Patanjali products by business houses of multinationals. Why did not these labs keep quiet regarding harmful Nestle Maggie?. more  
Surprising that the outlet where the samples were taken , the batch no and the printed expiry number have not been disclosed.It is quite possible that they had taken it from an outlet where there is no control over the goods which had an expired date. The allegation becomes baseless as there can be many a gap between the cup and the lip. more  
Why not FSSAI test the samples of Mustard Oil, that are being sold in the market by various companies and provide the observation. Why only targeting Patanjali products. more  
100% true. Ptanjali has no manufacturing facilities for most of the products. Using the brand name they outsource for igher profit margin.The factorynwas raided and sealed in Alwar. This applies for most of their products more
