Haridwar: Uttarakhand Chief Minister
Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank on Sunday met Baba Ramdev and termed as
"very unfortunate and shameful" the police crackdown against
yoga guru and his supporters.

Nishank flew in Patanjali Yogpeeth, one of the largest
Yoga institutes in India, and held a closed door meeting with
Baba Ramdev for nearly 90 minutes here and assured yoga guru
of full security and support from the state government and
BJP.

After the meeting, Nishank told reporters that the
police crackdown on the people peacefully demonstrating in
support of their demands against corruption and black money in
New Delhi is "very unfortunate and shameful " and June 4 has
been added as a black chapter in the history of Indian
democracy.

Lending his full support to Baba, Nishank said it seems
that those opposing the agitation of Baba has black money in
their foreign bank accounts and centre is patronising such
people.

Nishank said his government is ready to provide
security to Ramdev if he wants to continue his fast in
Uttarakhand.

Former Uttarakhand Chief Minister ND Tiwari is also
expected to travel to Patanjali Yogpeeth in Haridwar and meet
Baba Ramdev.

Meanwhile, a black day was observed in Patanjali
Yogpeeth and all offices including the medical dispensaries
and canteen remained closed.
