Ramdev’s lawyer in Court with folded hand- “Want to apologize"

’The Supreme Court on Tuesday came down heavily on Baba Ramdev for violating its directives on misleading advertisements of Patanjali's medicinal products even as the yoga guru, who was present in court, tendered an unconditional apology.
The top court observed that advertisements issued by Patanjali are in the "teeth of law" of the land. "Be ready for action," the Supreme Court told Ramdev.
A bench of Justices Hima Kohli and Ahsanuddin Amanullah also refused to accept an apology tendered by Patanjali last month after the top court rap during the earlier hearing. "We are not happy with your apology," Justice Kohli said.
"You should have made sure that the solemn undertaking should have been in letter and spirit. We can also say that we are sorry for not accepting it. Your apology is not persuading this court. It is more of a lip service," the Supreme Court said.
After which, Ramdev's lawyer said both Ramdev and Balakrishna are ready to personally apologize in court. "We want to apologize and are ready for whatever the court says," the yoga guru's lawyer told the court with folded hands.
The Supreme Court also pulled up the Centre for not taking action and said they were sitting with their eyes shut. "We are wondering why the government chose to keep their eyes shut," the bench had said.
The Supreme Court also asked Ramdev and Balkrishna to be present in the court on April 10 - the next date of hearing in the case.
On February 27, the top court directed the company to stop all electronic and print advertisements of its medicines giving misleading" information with immediate effect.
The case began in November last year when the Supreme Court started hearing a petition filed by the Indian Medical Association (IMA), cautioned Patanjali Ayurved against making "false" and "misleading" claims in advertisements about its medicines.
