After Patanjali, Baba Ramdev forays into private security business

Vastavam web :Baba Ramdev, who had created sensation by introducing ayurveda products, oils, pulses and even confectionaries is not planning to involve in another business. A group of well-toned young men and women flexing muscles, walking on tightrope and running inside Ramdev’s Patanjali complex in Haridwar has nothing to do with his ayurveda and FMCG business. These youngsters are getting ready to work as private security guards with Ramdev’s Parakram Suraksha Private Ltd. The yoga guru is looking beyond FMCG and Ayurveda business. Ramdev has set his sights on the lucrative private security business and launched his security firm, Patanjali sources said on Tuesday. “Patanjali has sensitized people towards Ayurveda, Yoga and Swadeshi (products). Now our aim is to prepare individuals for self and country’s security and for this we have formed Parakram (security agency),” Ramdev said in a statement. According to Patanjali sources, the yoga guru has hired retired army and police officials to train new recruits. Some retired officials have joined as volunteers to share techniques with the youth. The plan is to make the security firm visible in some key states by the end of this year.
