Etah: Yoga guru Ramdev Thursday asked the
people to "teach Congress a lesson" by not voting for its candidates in the upcoming Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls over the party`s "failure" in bringing back black money stashed away abroad.
"Neither the Congress is willing to bring back the black
money stashed away in foreign banks, nor is it willing to
reveal the names of those Indian nationals who have
accumulated ill-gotten cash abroad.
"People should teach a lesson to Congress by not voting
for the party candidates in upcoming Assembly polls in UP,"
Ramdev said, addressing a gathering at his yoga camp here.
He said the defeat of Congress in the recently held bypolls showed the "anger and frustration" of people against the policies of the party.
The yoga guru said the police action at Delhi`s Ramlila
ground against him and his supporters, including women and
children, was "very unfortunate" and "shameful" on the part of
Dismissing the affidavit filed by Delhi Police stating
there could have been communal tension as people living in
nearby areas of the ground belonged to minority community that
prompted the police to take action, Ramdev said he had in the
past organised his yoga camp at the venue and no such tension
was witnessed then.
Taking a dig at Rahul Gandhi, he said Congress would not
get any benefit by his repeated tours to Uttar Pradesh.
"Rahul should first clarify his stand on the issue of
corruption and black money and then ask for votes," Ramdev
