NINORA (MADHYA PRADESH): Patanjali Group, promoted by yoga guru Baba Ramdev, will soon set up a food processing park and cow research centre in Madhya Pradesh.
“Patanjali Group has been given offers by many states to set up food processing park. But we have decided to establish it in Madhya Pradesh and if everything goes well then it will become functional this year itself,” Ramdev said. He was addressing the International Vichar Mahakumbh being organised here as part of the ongoing month-long Simhastha Kumbh Mela underway at Ujjain.
The yoga guru also informed that the Group wants to establish cow research centres at four places with an investment of Rs 500 crore. One of the centres will be set up in Madhya Pradesh.
“The centre in Madhya Pradesh will conserve local cows and will make efforts to enhance their milk production,” he said.
Accompanied by higher officials, Ramdev’s close associate Acharya Balkrishna toured Dhar and Agar-Malwa regions of the state in April to select a site for setting up these proposed units.
