Hoshiarpur: Yoga guru Ramdev on Monday said he
along with his supporters would campaign against Congress
candidates in the upcoming assembly election in Punjab.

He would also visit other poll-bound states, including
Uttar Pradesh, to ensure defeat of Congress candidates, he
said.

A third front would be formed before the next Lok Sabha
elections in 2014, Ramdev told reporters after holding a yoga
camp at the police ground here.
Replying to a question, Ramdev said he had already
written to the Central government to take stringent action
against the corrupt.

"But, I have not received any reply so far," he said.

On runaway inflation, Ramdev said the Centre and state
governments were equally responsible for the price spiral.
Both were not serious to bring down prices of essential
commodities, he said.
