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.
