Patanjali transgressing all limits

In todays Hindustan Times, the first page, see the advertisement by Patanjali. Notice the text: Swadeshi Resolution, The Only Option

"For Patanjali the nation is a family while for the foreign companies, it is just a market. Foreign companies have control over approx 750 lakh crore in our economy. These forei companies every year loot lakhs of crores of rupees from our country to their country.
Patanjali 100% Pure Products, 100% Prosperity for Charity"
Where is the product? Surrogately, that too on the Republic Day, using our patriotic feelings to pushing his company's product, entirely benefiting the individual. Without any factual basis, all superlative adjectives given to his company! Firstly, the newspaper gets the money, and capitalist businessmen do their marketing benefiting therefrom. What does that get the commoner?
See the picture painted about India in the last sentence:
"Swadeshi Resolution: On Republic Day, take a pledge of Swadeshi to save the country from economic loot; educational, medical and cultural slavery; and poverty." Notice the word, "pledge" used normally, associated with sacrosanct occasion as Republic Day.
गिराकर किसी और को स्वयं उठना कितना नैतिक है!? more

Stop "othering" western companies just because they belong outside the country. Newly discovered patriotism benefits none. Indians doing this makes the deed right? Unlike say Chyawanprash produced since a century, utilising a certain formulation, Bees make honey, or cows give milk, while those making proprietery formulations therefrom benefits, adding just the additive! Imaging the manifold profits. Reputations being encashed. Swadeshi highly overrated. By the way the mass production industrial level packaging machinery used, involves a technology component too. Are those machines indigenous? Please use common sense. more  
amazon advertises on all festivals that it is the only way to celebrate. we seem to be okay with it. we do not like Indian companies claiming or stating anything. colonial hangover still exists more  
Swadeshi is fine if quality and reliability are not sacrificed. I have tried Patanjali products and barring very few, found them to be lacking in competition with other Swadeshi manufacturers also. Eg. Try Parle's Monaco and Patanjali's biscuit. The difference is obvious. Check the honey that Patajali sells. Its probably got sugar mixed in it. The prportion of Ayurvedic substances in Patanjali's product are far too less. Ramdev and BalKrishna are businessmen, not saints. more  
Can't conflate India's aatmnirbharta growth story with corporate entity's offerings, potentially benefiting a single individual, through such advertisements. Newspapers derive a qui pro quo getting paid propaganda. Advertisement cost Rs.50 lakhs each. Can trusts afford these payments? Who pays ultimately? Gullible buyers do. The state must monitor the propaganda spreading entity concerned. more  
Quality of such product is always doubtful. There were complains from various corners but he got an over ride every time. He targeted the public sentiment as an important tool to penetrate his products and contesting the product quality & features using such sentiment. People should have an assessment prior to show their inclination. more
