Unnao: Yoga guru Ramdev on Wednesday blamed the
Congress-led UPA government for "loot" and "corruption" in the
country and said he was trying to build public opinion against
"It is foolish to expect any kind of improvement in the
system from the Central government to bring back black money
and end corruption, as it (itself) is responsible for the
loot. Therefore I`m working to build public opinion against
it," Ramdev on his Swabhiman Yatra told newspersons here.
"In democracy, mass awareness and public opinion lead to
anger among the people which forces even political parties to
mend their ways. We are working on creating mass awareness to
bring such people on the right path," he said.
The yoga guru also asked people to "teach a lesson" to
the Congress party by ensuring that its members do not reach
the Lok Sabha and state assemblies.
To questions on whom to support in the coming elections,
he said, "Those who are out to save the country."
Ramdev started his 10,000-km-long Bharat Swabhiman Yatra
from Jhansi on September 20 which aims to "awaken people about
corruption and black money".
When asked why he started the yatra from Uttar Pradesh,
he said that it was because several works towards social,
spiritual and nation building were started from here.
