Cong has problems with my anti-graft drive: Ramdev
Allahabad: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Tuesday
said the Congress was the only political party which had
problems with his crusade against corruption.
"The Congress seems to be the only political party
which has problems with my drive against graft, my efforts to
bring back black money stashed away in tax havens abroad,"
"It is not (Chief Minister) Mayawati but Maya (black
money) stashed away abroad that is responsible for the plight
of the poor," Ramdev told reporters here.
Referring to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi`s remarks
relating to people of Uttar Pradesh at a rally yesterday, he
said "the crown prince should know that more than 80 per cent
people of the country are living like beggars."
"If he does some soul searching, he will come to know
which political party is most responsible for all this," the
yoga guru said.
Kickstarting his party`s campaign for the coming
assembly election in UP from Phulpur, Gandhi said "people of
Uttar Pradesh are appreciated for their hard work, wherever
they go in search of job....How long will you beg in
Maharashtra (for work)? ..."
"I have only three demands -- bring back black money from
abroad, abolish all currency notes of high denominations and
all taxes, and keep a modest transaction tax in place," Ramdev
He said he would get surveys conducted to demonstrate
the extent of public support enjoyed by his proposed measures.
