Lucknow: Asserting they were not hankering
after power, yoga guru Ramdev on Wednesday said massive campaigns
against corruption and black money would be launched in five
poll-bound states, including Uttar Pradesh.

Talking to reporters here, he reiterated his demand for
declaring black money stashed in foreign banks abroad as
national property.

"A list of 700 people who have stashed black money abroad
has been received by the Centre but has not been made public.
This is a serious matter," Ramdev said.

"Campaigns will be launched in five states, including
Uttar Pradesh, ahead of elections there on the issues of black
money, corruption and systematic change," he said adding "our
struggle is not for power."

"I will request the Prime Minister to declare black
money as national property in the winter session of
Parliament," he said.

Ramdev said the Prime Minister should implement honesty
in his personal life in political field too.

"The entire country sees him as an honest PM. If he fails
to do so people will raise suspicion on his honesty."
