Ramlila happens every year: Khurshid on Ramdev`s protest

Taking an apparent dig at Yoga guru Ramdev`s second agitation at Ramlila Grounds, Law Minister Salman Khurshid on Thursday said that Ramlila is performed every year.



New Delhi: Taking a jibe at Baba Ramdev`s protest at Ramlila Maidan, union Law Minister Salman Khurshid Thursday said that "Ramlila takes place every year".

"Ramlila takes place every year. Similarly, in a democracy people have different opinions which they display regularly. Since it is happening before the people, they will make a decision," Khurshid told reporters.

Ramdev Thursday started his protest against black money and corruption.

A controversy was triggered at the venue over a banner showing Ramdev`s close aide Balkrishna, who is in jail in a case related to fraud, along with Mahatma Gandhi and several other prominent persons.

The banner was later removed.

The Congress condemned the banner, saying it is for Ramdev to answer.

"To put the photo of a person against whom fraud case is registered and who is in jail, along with Mahatma Gandhi, Bhagat Singh, Sardar Patel, Subhash Chandra Bose, is condemnable," said union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal.
