Rajkot: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev today
criticised P Chidambaram`s recent remark on saffron terror
saying it was `shameful` that it came from the Home Minister
of the country.
"Saffron colour is symbol of humanism and
spirituality. The remark that came from Union Home Minister is
shameful", he said.
The Home Minister should concentrate on taking strict
action against Maoists, tackle naxalism and terrorism and
refrain from making such remarks, he added.
Emphasising the need to bring about changes in the
existing laws in the country, Baba Ramdev said corruption
should attract death sentence.
Corruption has spread from top to bottom in the Indian
administration. It can be curbed only if the law is made
stricter, he said, adding that if the guilty are not punished
strictly, there would be no deterrence.
Baba Ramdev was here for his "Bharat Nirman Yatra"
that started from Dwarka on September 3.
Terming his yatra as a non-political movement, Ramdev
said the object of the yatra is to create awareness among the
people about issues like corruption, black money and to spread
the message of importance of education.
The yatra will cover more than 600 districts of the
country, he said.
