Ramdev attack is just `yoga exercise`: Moily

Government made light of Ramdev`s fresh attack, terming it as nothing more than a "yoga exercise" and took on him for claiming that Rs two lakh crore of black money have been stashed in foreign banks.

New Delhi: Government on Monday made light of
Ramdev`s fresh attack, terming it as nothing more than a "yoga
exercise" and took on him for claiming that Rs two lakh crore
of black money have been stashed in foreign banks.

"That is one of his yoga exercises. Nothing much can be
attributed to it. We have to take it as a yoga exercise,"
Law Minister Veerappa Moily told reporters here.

He was responding when asked to comment on Ramdev`s
attack on the government yesterday when the yoga guru was back
in Delhi three weeks after being bundled out during a midnight
police crackdown on his agitation at Ramlila Maidan.
Ramdev alleged that the government was "muzzling" voices
of those who talk about black money or tell the truth and
vowed to continue his fight against corruption.
On Ramdev`s claim that Rs two lakh crore Indian black
money have been stashed in foreign banks, Moily said, "If
he can tell the Government how he derived the figure, we will
definitely take action."
