Ramdev at Ramlila to support Hazare

Baba Ramdev recalled the police action against him on the night of June 4, citing criticism of the police this time as the cause.

New Delhi: Nearly two-and-half months after he was evicted from the grounds, Yoga guru Ramdev was at the Ramlila Maidan on Wednesday to extend support to Anna Hazare`s movement for a strong Lokpal.

Ramdev said, he was with the 74-year-old Gandhian for an hour to extend solidarity in his "fight against corruption" and make the system "transparent".

"The logjam should end soon," Ramdev said, referring to negotiations between Team Anna and government representatives.

Calling for a "bigger struggle", he said, the country must ensure justice to "farmers, poor and the oppressed".

"We have to change our system. We will have to prepare ourselves for a bigger struggle. We will have to ensure justice to farmers, poor and downtrodden," he added.

"Some people have betrayed the country..We have to fight against them. The wrongs committed in the last 64 years have to be corrected," he said.

Recalling the police action against him on the intervening night of June 4 and 5, he claimed because of the criticism of the police, it has not resorted to any such action this time.

"Because of the consequences of the police action then, the forces have not come here with batons this time," he further said.
