Has Baba Ramdev bought Chinese Apple Juice? What about Swadeshi or Make in India?

HPMC HimachalToday, one news in the Hindustan Times shocked me that Baba Ramdev has discontinued buying Apple Concentrate from HPMC and started buying it from China. A great shock for me because I never expected this from a person like Baba Ramdev who advocates Swadeshi over foreign products.

As per the news, Baba Ramdev's Patanjali Ayurveda dumped HPMC, a Himachal government subsidiary, to Chinese vendor over the price issue. It looks that profitability has taken priority at Petangali Yogpeth and they are dumping Indian manufacturers who are unable to offer prices equivalent to Chinese manufacturers.

baba ramdev, RamdevSome newspapers, even termed it as Hypocrisy? The cost issue was not very big as HPMC asked to increase the cost of Apple juice 1 Kg concentrate from Rs 72 to Rs 100 and from 1 Kg of juice concentrate we can make more than 1000 liters of juice. Patanjali sells 1 Kg Apple Juice for Rs 85, therefore, it was not a big hike in price of Apple concentrate asked by HPMC, then why Baba Ramdev dumped the Swadeshi company to a Cheap Chinese one.

Many Indians buy Baba Ramdev products because they believe that they are of Indian origin; therefore, this move of Baba Ramdev has hurt many. The same thing I noticed in Baba Ramdev's Divya Kanti toothpaste which contain all chemicals and basic ingredients as we see in regular toothpastes. These developments highlight that Baba Ramdev is using Swadeshi to sell its products which may not be Swadeshi in reality.

It is important for the Baba Ramdev to clear his stand on such issues so that we can come to know about the reality. If his products are not 100% Swadeshi, then he should not brand them as 100% Swadeshi because it is a kind of fraud with millions of innocent Indians who follow him blindly.
