Justifying the name of the medicine, Ramdev at his press conference said: "The botanical name of this medicine is ‘Putranjiva roxburghii'. It is called ‘Putrajivak in Gujarati, Hindi and Kannada."
He also clarified that ‘the Putrajeevak medicine has nothing to do with sex determination of a child before birth.'
He said that he would not change the name of the medicine but would add a disclaimer on the packet.
Ramdev alleged that this was a conspiracy against him and that ‘in the Parliament, they (MPs) should raise issues of black money, corruption, earthquake relief.' "People are making a controversy out of a non-issue," he said.

Ramdev also demanded that KC Tyagi apologise for his remarks on the medicine. "I thought people will not involve me in any controversy after change in government," he added.
Opposition JD(U) on Thursday created uproar in the Rajya Sabha over alleged sale of 'controversial' Ayurvedic medicines by Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev.
JD(U) MP KC Tyagi on Thursday questioned the medicine 'Putra Jeevak Beej' reportedly sold by Yoga Guru's Patanjali Pharmacy. The JD(U) leader has claimed that this medicine helps a woman conceive only 'male child', which is a crime.
