Earlier, Swami Ramdev, while speaking to India TV had raised a question that why only allopathic treatment should get medicine status? And that why research should be limited to the elites.
"Why should research be an exclusive thing of elites. Why treatment techniques devised in Germany, the United Kingdom or Europe only get acceptance status as 'medicine'? Time people recognise Ayurveda's power to cure and heal people," he said.
