Dharamsala: Yoga guru Swami Ramdev has
said that he may join politics in next two years.

"Joining politics presently is not on cards, but I may
do so after two years," Ramdev told reporters here.

He said that his main aim was to bring awareness among
the people against corruption.

Ninety nine per cent of the corruption can be weeded
out if currency notes of Rs 100 and above are banned in the
country, he said, claiming even Prime Minister Manmohan Singh
agrees to his suggestion.

He said despite huge budget allocation by the Centre
for development, results were not visible because of
corruption.

Ramdev said that the government should come up with
strict laws against corruption.

A lot of money is given to Jammu and Kashmir under
special packages but it is not being properly utilised, he
alleged.

The Yoga guru is on a four-day visit to Himachal
Pradesh where he will hold public meetings in Chamba, Kangra
Mandi and Una districts of the state.
