Maharashtra government might take back the 300-acre land once allotted to yoga guru Ramdev Baba’s food processing venture Patanjali Ayurved Ltd at Multi-Model International Passenger and Cargo Hub Airport at Nagpur (MIHAN).

The work on the ambitious project came to a halt after it was reported that the contractors employed by the yoga guru’s company weren’t given their dues.

A state government official said, “In the past three years, only some sheds have been raised and there is no sign of the food processing venture, which was to manufacture juice from Nagpur oranges.”

After Ramdev Baba was allotted the land in September 2016, he’d informed media persons in Nagpur that the project would be running in six months.

However, this isn’t the first time the yoga guru’s land in MIHAN made headlines. Reports also suggested that most of the employees hired for the food-processing project had quit.

Earlier, the Devendra Fadnavis government landed in soup after allotting land to Patanjali at Rs 25 lakh per acre against the market price that was four times higher. However, Fadnavis had then given a clarification on the same.
