Ramdev claims he can live for at least 150 years!

Ramdev said he would live for "150-200 years" with the

and adulterated food, I could live for a longer life for at

party will shake the political scenario."

them.

two-year-long tour commencing this September to meet over 50
crore people as a part of his `Bharat Swabhiman` campaign.

"Our aim is to transform villages and I will try to spend
maximum time there and get more number of people enrolled in
the movement. My endeavour is to meet over 50 crore people,"
Ramdev said.

began the `Bharat Swabhiman` yatra in 600 villages besides one
crore members were taking up classes at district-levels, he
said, adding some top leaders from Muslim community too had
expressed their wish to be part of the campaign.
