New Delhi: Training his guns on Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for his support to the protesting Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students, yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Thursday said that association with anti-nationals is treachery.

"It is necessary to know who raised anti-national slogans. But it is clear that the mass which gathered there was not nationalist. Association with the anti-nationals is also treachery. Involving in anti-national activities and supporting it has been considered as crime, both legally and spiritually. The political leaders should go beyond votebank politics and should not compromise with the nation's sovereignty and unity," Ramdev told the media here.

 

"Supporting the people who raise 'anti-national' slogans is wrong. It is the responsibility of the government to see to it that action is taken against any anti-national element and innocents are not caught. The anti-national slogans are not right for the unity and sovereignty of the nation," he added.

 

Notably, a sedition case has been registered against Rahul Gandhi in an Allahabad district court for his remark on the JNU incident.
