Lok Sabha MP and Uttarakhand BJP chief Ajay Bhatt has suggested that in order to avoid caesarean deliveries women should drink water from Garud Ganga (a river in Bageshwar, Kumaon).

Bhatt was speaking in the Lok Sabha Thursday when he said only few have heard about the medical properties of Garud Ganga’s water. He also stated that stones from the river if rubbed on snakebite wounds can save lives.

As per a Times of India, report Ajay Bhatt said someone from Kakdighat, where Swami Vivekananda meditated told him that he was scared to enter his house because a snake was stuck in the rat trap. His family was afraid of being bitten by it.

Bhatt added that he told him about a village saint who has stone from the banks of Garud Ganga river and asked him to get the same to his house. He said the man followed his advice and in few minutes, the trapped snake crawled out of the house.

Talking about the powers of the sacred river, Bhatt claimed that pregnant woman with complications can get relief by drinking one cup of Garud Ganga water.

Bhatt was speaking on the central council amendment (homeopathy) bill. He said, “Rub the stone of Garud Ganga, mix it with water and make the patient drink it. There will be no need of caesarean deliveries.”

Several allopathic doctors criticised his statement and questioned its scientific rationale.
