Mumbai: Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray
on Sunday appealed to the people to protest eviction of Baba Ramdev from
Ramlila Maidan and subsequent lathi-charge by hoisting black
flags on their houses.
"The time has come to dislodge the Congress from the
seat of power. The way the police caned peaceful protesters
there was highly condemnable," Thackeray said in a press
"I do not want to jump in the debate whether the fast
launched by Baba Ramdev was justified or not. But the way the
Congress tried to crush the agitation was deplorable," he
Thackeray said the common people should "revolt" to
dethrone the Congress as merely undertaking fasts and
launching agitations would not suffice.
