Motihari: Showering praise on Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for his landslide victory in Bihar Assembly polls, yoga guru Baba Ram Dev on Saturday said Kumar had set a novel
example in the present politics in India.
"Kumar has set up a novel example in present politics in India," the yoga guru, currently on Bharat Swabhiman Yatra, told reporters here.
The election results had brought to light that people had voted for development of the state and politics of caste, religion and dynasty were relegated to background for the
first time. It would also have positive effect on politics in Uttar Pradesh and other states in the country, he said.
He lauded Kumar for his initiatives to weed out corruption in Bihar and said it was also a good sign for the nation.
Ram Dev reiterated his resolve to float a new political party in the next two years and said the proposed political outfit would play a major role in 2014 Lok Sabha election.
The yoga guru, however, refused to plunge into politics.
