The quality of the packaged water has been evaluated on the strictest available measures. The original drinking water unit of Patanjali Gramodhyog is located in Kankhel, Haridwar but since Swamiji has pledged not to return to Patanjali Yogpeeth, till conclusion of the Parliamentary elections next year, `Divya jal` has been made available from Lucknow unit.
Yogrishi swami Ramdevji Maharaj said that had the nation taken the route of `swadeshi` and honesty, the nation would not have faced financial insecurity, anarchy, ncertainty, imbalance and poverty. He said that the `swadeshi` campaign is basically based on the values, as practiced by great freedom fighters and martyrs like Mahatma Gandhi, Tilak, Pt Ramprasad Bismil and Bhagat Singh. These great personalities believed that only `swadeshi` could pave way for selfdependency. Mahatma Gandhi, launched `swadeshi` drive, keeping `khadi` at the focus but unfortunately it was pushed to the corner.
