Patanjali founders Baba Ramdev and Acharya Balkrishna have tended an unconditional apology amid furore over misleading advertisements by Patanjali Ayurveda. The two businessmen filed an affidavit with the Supreme Court on Tuesday and assured that such a lapse would not be repeated in the future.

“I seek pardon for the aforesaid breach of the statement. I undertake to always uphold the majesty of Law and majesty of Justice,” Baba Ramdev said in his affidavit. 

He also apologised unconditionally for a press conference held in November last year and assured that he would refrain from making any public statements that could breach the undertaking given before the court. A bench of Justices Hima Kohli and Ahsanuddin Amanullah is scheduled to hear the matter on Wednesday.

The Supreme Court had previously rapped the central government for its inaction against Patanjali Ayurved adverts. A bench comprising Justices Hima Kohli and Ahsanuddin Amanullah heard the matter on April 2 and posed several questions for the AYUSH Ministry. It had also refused to accept the apologies of Baba Ramdev and Patanjali MD Acharya Balkrishna in a contempt case concerning its order about the company's misleading advertisements for its medicinal products.
