Yoga guru Ramdev announced on Sunday that he would set up a food park and an ‘acharyakulam’ (school based vedic-cum-modern education system) in Nepal.

The announcement came after Nepalese Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ called on Ramdev in Haridwar and visited Patanjali Ayurved’s food park during his official tour to India.

Ramdev said he hoped that Patanjali’s food park in Nepal would help create more jobs in the Himalayan nation.

“We discussed the scope of expanding yoga and ayurveda education in Nepal. A unit of Patanjali food and herbal park will be opened in Nepal,” Ramdev said. “We are also planning to open a vedic- and modern education-based school in Nepal.”

Lauding the works of Ramdev and Acharya Balkrishna, Prachanda said the two had transformed the world’s ancient science of yoga and ayurveda into wealth with the help of modern technology.

“It is a landmark achievement,” said the Nepalese prime minister, who was accompanied by a delegation.

Talking to media persons, Prachanda said Nepal’s relations with India were very old and both the countries shared “common interests”. “We will work in a friendly atmosphere to get prosperity. I am very thankful to Baba Ramdev and Achraya Balkrishna as they have expressed confidence in me,” he said.
