Yoga guru Ramdev on Monday pledged to donate Rs 25 crore to the Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations Fund (PM CARES Fund), which has been set up to fight the coronavirus outbreak in the country.

The yoga guru also said he will give the premises of two of his institutions in Haridwar and his ashrams in Kolkata, Modinagar (Uttar Pradesh) and Solan (Himachal Pradesh) for the treatment of COVID-19 patients.

About 1,500 suspects can be kept in isolation at these facilities together, he said.

Food will be provided by Patanjali at these places, he also added.

Ramdev also informed all employees of his Patanjali and Ruchi Soya will donate their one-day salary, collectively amounting to Rs 1.5 crore, to the PM CARES fund.

He also appealed to his followers to contribute generously to the PM CARES fund in the fight against coronavirus.
