Belgaum: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Monday said the
government should take steps to bring back over Rs 40,000
crore black money lying in foreign banks and use the money for
development activities.

"Parliament should make provision for it and a bill should
be passed in the house to get over Rs 40,000 crore lying in
foreign banks back to India. This money should be used for
development activities," he told reporters here, en route to
Puttaparthi.

Baba Ramdev, founder of Patanjali Yog and Bharat Swabhiman
Trust, said he would write to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh
and leaders of political parties about an anti-corruption
action module.

He also said that an anti-corruption rally would be held
in Delhi on July 4.

Incidentally, the concept of Bharat Swabhiman trust was
mooted in Belgaum during his previous visit here in 2009.

Baba Ramdev later left for Puttaparthi to pay his last
respects to Satya Sai Baba.
