Rajya Sabha on Thursday witnessed uproarious scenes over yoga guru Baba Ramdev’s much-publicised infertility medicine ‘Divya Putrajeevak Seed’, which is being sold by Divya Pharmacy.
The issue was raised by Janata Dal (United) leader KC Tyagi who alleged that the medicine, which is being sold by Divya Pharmacy, guarantees a male child.
Tyagi also demanded a probe against Divya Pharmacy.
Without naming the yoga guru, he asked “if the Government of India under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi approves of this.”
Amid protests from treasury benches, Jaya Bachchan (SP) took the packet and gave it to Health Minister JP Nadda.
Several opposition members joined in condemning sale of such products and demanded action.
With Opposition members pressing for stringent action, Nadda said the issue is related to the Department of Aayush. “The Government will look into it and proper action will be taken.”
Nadda said the issue was very serious and he has just been given a packet of the product.
“Government is very serious on sex-ratio,” he said, adding that the Prime Minister was personally monitoring the ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padao’ campaign.
Divya Pharmacy, however, maintains that the medicine is an ayurvedic product and helps in curing infertility.
Reacting to the controversy, Patanjali Yogpeeth said, “This medicine (Putrajivak) only helps childless couples conceive, has nothing got to do with gender selection.”
Patanjali Yogpeeth accused some people of making pre-planned efforts to defame Ayurveda due to lack of knowledge and personal benefits.
The medicine is available in various stores of Divya Pharmacy at a cost of Rs. 35 per packet.
According to Divya Pharmacy, the ‘Divya Putrajeevak Seed’ helps in regulating menstrual cycle in a female and normalising the hormones in the female body and activates the reproductive tract.
It removes any toxins in the female reproductive tract. Divya putrajeevak is a powerful female aphrodisiac that helps in enhancing female sexual desires. It also works as rasayana and hence helps in slowing down the ageing processes.
