Haridwar: Yoga Guru Ramdev on Monday described
the Independence Day as "incomplete", and said only one per
cent of population has enslaved the whole country.

"Only one per cent of people of the country capturing
the constitutional systems have made the 99 per cent
population as slave and so the today`s Independence is
incomplete," Ramdev told reporters here.

He called for a change in the policies drafted by
Britishers and asked to scrap the "draconian laws" enacted
during the British raj.

"The fast track courts should complete the trial of the
cases related to corruption in 3 to 6 months and give death
penalty or life imprisonment to people if they are found
guilty," he said.

Extending his support to Anna Hazare in his fight
against corruption, Ramdev, however, refused to say anything
when asked whether he would travel to Delhi for the cause. In
this regard, he alleged that Centre is presenting every
democratic movement as "undemocratic".
