Baba Ramdev has decided to continue his fast but asked his workers to break their fast and work on ground to fight against corruption. Baba Ramdev on Tuesday revealed his action plan to the media at his ashram in Haridwar.
Talking on his ongoing stride against corruption, he said, “Anna Hazare is a social activist and our leader. He was with us earlier and will remain with us. The nature of the campaign has changed. I continue my fast. I have asked my people to fight without fasting.”
Reacting to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s remarks on the police crackdown, Ramdev said, “The PM as a person is honest but questions are arising on his honesty as a politician”.
Critisising the Delhi Police, he said, “The police have destroyed the CCTV that were installed and the recording taken away forcibly and edited to give a wrong impression to the people”.
The police crackdown on Baba Ramdev and his supporters not only destroyed property at the Ramlila grounds, but also left many Ramdev supporters injured.
One of the seriously injured is 50-year-old Gurgaon resident Rajbala, who was attending Ramdev agitation. She was allegedly hit on the neck, back and leg during Saturday night’s swoop.
“All medical expenses of Rajbala and other people injured during police action at Ramila Maidan will be born by the Patanjali,” said Ramdev.
However, Baba Ramdev said that he has forgiven those who planned the conspiracy to kill him, but he doesn’t forgive those who have betrayed the nation.
Fresh controversy has surfaced concerning Baba Ramdev’s aide, who allegedly signed the deal with the government. Acharya Balkrishna, considered Baba’s right-hand man, has been missing since June 4 — the day the government made the deal public, reported Times Now.
Sources said that Ramdev’s camp had made a commitment to call off the strike by 4pm on Saturday and when it did not happen, the government had to then categorically tell Ramdev it was going to release the letter.
