Betul (MP): Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Sunday said that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has written a letter
to him, ahead of the fast he was launching next month in
Delhi, against corruption.

"PM has displayed a constructive stand and agreed upon
his demands in his letter," Ramdev told reporters here
refusing to divulge contents of the letter.

He claimed that about one lakh people would join him
in fast while about one crore across the country would
participate in his satyagraha intended against the scourge of
corruption.
The Yoga guru did not to comment on the remark made by
the Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh that the
former`s fast was a `stunt` and would ultimately turn out to
be a flop.
Ramdev is planning to launch the nationwide protest
against the issues of corruption and black money stashed in
foreign banks from June 4 at Ramleela Maidan in Delhi.
