JNU row: Ramdev wants Deepika to hire him as advisorJanuary 14, 2020 10:13
Yoga guru Ramdev on Monday said Deepika Padukone should get herself acquainted with socio-political issues in the country before taking any "big decisions" and should appoint people like him as her advisors, who will give her a "fair insight" into vital issues.
Padukone has been drawing flak from right wing leaders and trolls for expressing solidarity with the students on the
JNU campus in New Delhi who were protesting against the January 5 violence.
"Deepika's efficiency as an actor is a different ball game. However, she should first study social, political and
cultural issues and understand more about our country. After acquiring this knowledge, she should take big decisions,"
Ramdev told reporters in Indore in Madhya Pradesh.
"I feel that Deepika Padukone should have persons like Swami Ramdev for the right piece of advice, he quipped.
Strongly supporting the new citizenship act, Ramdev said that even those people who do not even know the full form
of the CAA are using "foul language" against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
"The prime minister and the home minister have said that the law was not meant to snatch citizenship but rather to
grant it, but people are still igniting fires over it," he said.
Ramdev said some people are creating chaos over the National Register of Citizens.
