Panaji: Taking a jibe at Swami Ramdev
over his anti-illegal mining campaign in Goa, Congress on Monday
questionned credibility of the Yoga guru as a protagonist of
the cause.

"This gentleman (Baba Ramdev), with due respect to
what he has done for Yoga, ran in woman`s attire. How can he
inspire Goans," AICC Observer Jagmeet Singh Brar said
referring to the midnight crack down by police in June at
Ramleela Maidan in Delhi during Ramdev`s hunger strike.

The yoga exponent is currently touring the coastal
state and appealing people not to elect any politician
involved in illegal mining trade. Congress politicians from
the state are especially on the radar of Swami Ramdev.

Talking to reporters on Saturday here, Ramdev had
threatened of sitting on a hunger strike in support to his
anti-illegal mining agitation.
