The Supreme Court rejects the apology of Patanjali Director

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court rejects the apology of Patanjali Managing Director Acharya Balkrishna in the context of a misleading medical advertisement. Supreme Court justices Hima Kohli and Ahsanuddin Amanullah rejected the apology made for the advertisement. Not only this but the Supreme Court also refused the apology affidavit acceptance made by the Co-Founder of Patanjali Baba Ramdev,

Justice Hima Kohli said in Supreme Court- Why we will accept your apology, we are not at all convinced with your apology.

Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi, representing Patanjali informed the court that the affidavit is represented on paper and it should be ready to face consequences if the undertaking is broken.

 But here the apologies were given verbally, not handwritten.  The court has the right to reject it and consider it a breach of the agreement. They should be prepared for it before the affidavit is rejected.

In the mid-conversation, Kohli said, people make mistakes then they suffer. Rohatgi mentioned in the court at the end of the hearing. Patanjali was ready to apologize to the entire public unfortunately the court did not approve.

The court seriously criticized the State of Uttarakhand for its licensing authorities, failing to prosecute Patanjali and Divya Pharmacy.

 The State Licencing Authorities did not do anything and simply forwarded the file. It is also claimed despiting the Divya Pharmacy ads violates Drugs and Magic Remedies

 The State Licencing Authority, Haridwar, has instructed all of its officers who have held the position of Joint Director from 2018 to the present to submit affidavits justifying their inaction.

False Travel Claims

The Supreme Court also stated Managing Director of Patanjali and Baba Ramdev attempted to present themselves by fabricating reports of their travels overseas.

The bench already noted- strangely enough. The flight tickets are produced as annexures, booked on 31st March 2024. However, the applications were already filed on 30th March 2024. The real act says that no tickets existed on 30th March which is the date the affidavit was sworn. It was understood about the person, they are lured to every person so that they can avoid having a physical and personal appearance in court. The Court declared –it is unavoidable and non-acceptable which is unacceptable.
