Bhopal: Senior BJP leader and former
Deputy Prime Minister LK Advani on Friday criticised the union
government saying the crackdown on yoga guru Ramdev`s
agitation at Ramlila Ground reminded him of the emergency days
in 1975.

"The action taken by the Centre earlier this month
on Ramdev`s agitation at Ramlila Ground reminded us the
days of emergency, which was imposed in the country on June
25, 1975," Advani told reporters at the airport while terming
the police crackdown totally wrong.

Advani was here to open the Madhya Pradesh Natya
Vidyalaya at Rangshri Little Baille Troupe Compound on the
Shyamla Hills road.

On the issue of corruption, including the 2G spectrum
scam, he said that his party would take a tough stand on these
issues in the coming Parliament session and will demand a
detailed discussion on it.

He alleged that the government was not doing much against
corruption and even in the case of 2G scam, it was the Supreme
Court, which took a tough stand and not the Centre.

He demanded a clarification from the government on the
Lokpal bill issue and said that the government should come out
with a bill as early as possible, so that, a detailed
discussion can take place on it.
