Bhopal: Claiming that trusts run by yoga guru Ramdev were involved in money-laundering, Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh has said Ramdev should
declare the names of those who donated money to his trusts.

"Ramdev, who has raised certain questions against the
central government, should take the initiative to declare the
names of those who donated money to his trusts," Singh told
reporters here last night.

He alleged that trusts run by the yoga guru, who is
carrying out an agitation against corruption in the country,
were involved in money-laundering by helping those making
donations save income tax.

Asked why Rahul Gandhi, who is also the party`s General
Secretary, and other party leaders were keeping mum on the
Ramdev issue, Singh said that he was "alone capable of dealing
with him (Ramdev)".

On the Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma
Swaraj`s dance at Rajghat, Singh said the act did not behove
her.

About Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh
Chouhan`s offer to Ramdev to observe his fast against
corruption in the state capital, the Congress General
Secretary said the yoga guru was free to go anywhere but he
should spare Congress-ruled states.
