The Indian Medical Assocaition (IMA) on Wednesday wrote a letter to PM Modi, asking the Prime Minister to prevent Ramdev’s “misinformation campaign” against Covid-19 vaccine and to book him for sedition.
The IMA, which tried to draw PM Modi’s attention to a viral video during which Ramdev claims over 10,000 doctors have died thanks to Covid, said “When you( PM Modi) initiated the vaccine rollout, IMA leaders across the country stood first to urge the vaccine and by this dispelled the vaccine hesitancy.”
In an undated video that has gone viral on social media, Ramdev is seen telling people at his Yoga camp that over 10,000 doctors have died thanks to the coronavirus despite taking both doses of coronavirus vaccine.
Drawing on Ramdev remarks, IMA said “if someone is saying the allopathic medicine has killed the people, it’s an effort to challenge the Ministry who has issued the protocol for treatment to us.”

The top medical body called Ramdev’s comments a “deliberate move to stall the efforts of vaccination” and asked the PM to prevent it immediately.

IMA said it’s ” pained” to witness the good services rendered by nearly 10 lakhs of recent medical doctors being ridiculed and being called as a “stupid system”
“This in our opinion may be a clear-cut case of a sedition and such persons should be booked immediately with none delay under the fees of sedition.”
It further asked the PM to require appropriate action against Ramdev for challenging the govt of India protocols for treatment of Covid patients for his “vested interest” in his company products.
