Congress won't win more than 50 seats: Ramdev

Kolhapur: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Saturday said that Congress would not win more than 50 seats in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.

Addressing a press conference here with Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray, Ramdev announced his support to the "Maha-yuti" -- the opposition alliance of Sena, BJP and three other parties -- in Maharashtra.

"Congress cannot expect victory on more than 50 seats," Ramdev said. Industrialist Rajkumar Dhoot too was present on the occasion.

To a question, Ramdev said AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal had become a stooge of the Congress. "He has given up the issue of corruption and embraced the issue of communalism," he said.

To a question about controversy over BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi revealing his marital status for the first time in his election affidavit, Uddhav Thackeray said: "If Modi's wife does not have any problem with that, what is the issue for the press here?"
