"Hon'ble Minister, I have received your letter. I withdraw my statement, putting to rest the controversy over various medical practices... (jee aapaka patr praapt hua, usake sandarbh mein chikitsa paddatiyon ke sangharsh ke is poore vivaad ko khedapoorvak viraam dete hue main apana vaktavy vaapis leta hoon)," he tweeted from his personal Twitter handle.
माननीय श्री @drharshvardhan जी आपका पत्र प्राप्त हुआ,— स्वामी रामदेव (@yogrishiramdev) May 23, 2021
उसके संदर्भ में चिकित्सा पद्दतियों के संघर्ष के इस पूरे विवाद को खेदपूर्वक विराम देते हुए मैं अपना वक्तव्य वापिस लेता हूँ और यह पत्र आपको संप्रेषित कर रहा हूं- pic.twitter.com/jEAr59VtEe
Earlier on Sunday on the statement of Baba Ramdev’s, the health minister responded that his statement on allopathic medicines is “extremely unfortunate”.
On the basis of a video which is circulating on social media, the Indian Medical Association (IMA) on Saturday had said Ramdev claimed that allopathy is a "stupid science" and medicines such as remdesivir, fabiflu, and other drugs approved by the Drugs Controller General of India have failed to treat COVID-19 patients.
Then when the matter came out on social media Baba Ramdev apologizes for the remarks on allopathic medicines.
