New Delhi, Nov 18 (PTI) Taking a dig at Yoga guru Ramdev, Congress today said that he has developed a new asana called “Noodle Asana” which allows him to produce noodles without any regulation.
The remarks made by party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi came in the wake of reports that the instant noodles brand launched by Ramdev has not obtained mandatory product approvals from the Food Safety and Regulatory Authority of India.
“There is a new asana – Noodle Asana….The power of Noodle Asana: You automatically produce noodles without any regulation. This asana allows you to avoid all law,” he said at the AICC briefing.
Even though the Patanjali Atta Noodles packets display an FSSAI licence number, Central food safety regulator said that yoga guru Baba Ramdev-promoted FMCG venture did not have approval for its newly-launched instant noodles.
Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) Chairperson Ashish Bahuguna said no approval or licence has been granted to Patanjali for its instant noodles.
Singhvi further attacked Ramdev, saying that everyone should learn this “powerful” asana as it has magical powers to break all laws with impunity.
