Meerut: Shankaracharya Swami Swarupanand has
slammed Ramdev`s tirade against blackmoney and corruption
saying the yoga-guru`s campaign was "based on lies".
"A satyagrahi never runs away, he courts arrest. Ramdev`s
campaign was based on lies and this outcome was bound to
happen," he said.
The police crackdown at Ramlila Maidan on the intervening
night of June 4 and 5 in Delhi was justified, he told
mediapersons at the Rajrajeshwari temple here yesterday.
He also alleged that the anti-graft campaign of Anna
Hazare was being "sponsored" by the media.
"Anna`s campaign is sponsored by the media and it has
already been made a partner by using sms and advertisements,"
On the Communal Violence Prevention Bill, Swami
Swarupanand said the law was equal for all and no such bill
could be passed which was against the Constitution.
