Jaipur: Echoing Yoga guru Ramdev, Art of
Living founder Sri Sri Ravishankar today accused the
government of protecting those who have stashed black money
abroad, terming it as "uncceptable".

"It is unfortunate and unacceptable that the
government is not ready to disclose the names who have parked
(black) money outside the country. By doing this, government
is protecting those people," Ravishankar told reporters here on Tuesday night.
Noting that he supported Baba Ramdev when it came to
the issue corruption as it was something "unacceptable", he
said, "Politics is not my cup of tea and I am not interested
in forming any political party, but we, reformers, are
together when it comes to the issue of corruption and other
social evils. Now saints have to stand up against corruption
because people have suffered a lot."
On the problem of Naxalism, Ravishankar, said wrong
ideology was the root cause of the problem and the Art of
Living was conducting programmes to bring those people to
mainstream.

Ravishankar will be performing Rudrabhishek and hold
a Mahasatsang here tomorrow on the occasion of Mahashivaratri
in which around 50,000 people from all over the country and
abroad are likely to take part.
