The first is possible, but unlikely. The second strategy is what has brought Rahul Gandhi and Chandrababu Naidu together. Why Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali ads have gone missing from your TV The once-ubiquitous adverts of Baba Ramdev’s Ayurveda and FMCG company have seen a drastic reduction on the TV airwaves, and the firm has dropped out of the list of top-three advertisers in the...
