Haryana to give Cabinet Minister status to Ramdev

tr_2015The Haryana government has decided to give Ramdev, the Brand Ambassador for promotion of yoga and ayurveda in Haryana, status equivalent to Cabinet Minister.

According to Haryana’s Health and Sports Minister Anil Vij a herbal forest will be developed in the state where thousands of species of ayurvedic herbs will be grown under the supervision of Ramdev. The emphasis on yoga and ayurveda will lead to an amalgamation of tradition and modernity and inclusion of yoga in the school syllabus will turn Haryana into a model state based on Indian values and traditions.

It may be  mentioned that last month the Haryana Assembly witnessed uproarious scenes as the BJP government came under attack from the opposition Congress for allegedly “going out of its way to please Ramdev by making him the brand ambassador” for the promotion of yoga and ayurveda in the state.
