Ballia: Coming in support of Baba Ramdev,
Lok Manch founder Amar Singh on Monday said the yoga guru has all
the right to enter politics.

"Baba Ramdev is a physician and has all the right to
make a foray into politics," the expelled Samajwadi Party
leader told reporters here.
He said the recent attack on Ramdev by some political
parties over his campaign against corruption was unnecessary.

Referring to disproportionate asset cases against some
politicians, the former SP leader also termed the attack on
the UPA government at the Centre on the corruption issue as
unwarranted.
In reply to a question, he said his proposed political
outfit would align with any other party which is not against
the creation of a Poorvanchal state.

Singh said he would announce the name of his political
party after getting permission from the Election Commission.

"I hope the EC will soon grant permission," he said.

Taking a potshot at SP head Mulayam Singh Yadav and
BSP chief Mayawati, he said "whether they are good politicians
or nor, but they are good village heads of the state."
