Now, anti-corruption Baba Ramdev's yatra in Punjab

BATHINDA: At a time when political season is heating up in Punjab and yatras are being undertaken by various political parties, yoga guru Ramdev too has pitched in with his own brand of Swabhiman yatra. Having started the Punjab visit on Wednesday evening from this politically volatile town, Ramdev will remain in the state for ten odd days and will raise the demand for bringing back black money stashed away in foreign banks.

Starting the first day of his proposed yatra on volatile note, Ramdev vehemently targeted the UPA government in general, and Ccongress in particular. Before starting a yoga shiver (camp), the baba said he was determined to force the UPA government to contain corruption and bring back the black money. Supporting the Jan Lokpal Bill, initiated by Anna Hazare, Ramdev said a strong public movement was needed for bringing in the bill.

"Though, Art of living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and social reformer Anna Hazare are working in their own spheres at present, the three of us are united in opposing corruption, and would soon share a common platform, as Congress is not serious to contain corruption and giving a go ahead to inflation, price rise", said Ramdev. Yoga guru said trillions are stashed in foreign banks as black money, but here in India majority of people are living under poverty line and UPA is doing nothing to reverse the trend. He said there is dire need to frame such economic policies which suit the common men.

Ramdev later visited the temporal seat of Sikhs at Takhat Damdama Sahib and paid obeisance. He also visited Laleana village and adopted it to make it drug-free and asked the villagers to go for organic farming.

Box- Aggressive China worries Baba

Taking strong note of China's advancement towards India by building up its military paraphernalia, Ramdev said it is threat for sovereignty of India and the country must give befitting reply to China's nefarious designs.
