Gwalior: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev will embark
on "a 1,00,000 km long yatra" on Tuesday from Jhansi in Madhya
Pradesh to awaken people about corruption and black money.

Ramdev paid rich tributes at the samadhi of Rani Laxmi
Bai on arrival here on Monday. Then he left for Jhansi.

The Yoga Guru told reporters on this occasion that
there were "two kinds of people in this country, honest and
traitors".

He claimed that all honest people were with him in his
fight against corruption and black money.

Aim of the yatra was to awaken people on the issue of "Rs
4,00,000 crore black money stashed in the foreign countries",
he said.

The yatra will end in Prayag, Uttar Pradesh.

When asked whether he feared that Centre would deal with
yatra the same way it dealt with his agitation in Delhi,
Ramdev said the government had learnt its lessons, and would
not repeat the Delhi act.

The fight against the corruption was like a "religious
war" to him, he said.
