Baba Ramdev on Thursday took a dig at Hindustan Unilever Ltd (HUL), India’s largest consumer packaged goods firm.

Speaking at the Globoil India 2017, an edible oil conclave, Ramdev said, "What are foreign companies doing for India? What has Hindustan Unilever done for Hindustan, what gate has Colgate opened, and what birds has Nestlé given flight to?".

He further said that "We have done shirshasan of many large companies. Only Unilever is left". HUL has not commented over Baba Ramdev's statement yet.

He also announced that his 105.6 billion worth firm, Patanjali would soon enter in apparel and dairy business.

"The total market size (of these two categories) will be Rs20 lakh crore. We will enter both within this year", he added.

Earlier this month, Baba Ramdev landed in trouble over Patanjali's advertisement mocking the HUL's product.

The Delhi High Court ordered Patanjali Ayurved to stop telecasting its soap advertisements on TV. The Court's order came after Reckitt Benckiser filed a case against Ramdev's firm Patanjali over downgrading its soap brand-Dettol in its commercials.

This was the second time the Court raised eyebrows over Patanjali's soap ad. Bombay High Court had issued a similar ad interim injunction asking Patanjali to refrain from airing the ad till the next date of hearing on September 18.

The whole controversy started over Patanjali advertisement mocking RB's Dettol soap and HUL's Pears and Lifebuoy.
