Uttarakhand crisis: Ramdev slams Sonia, Rahul; asks them to focus on their own affairs

New Delhi: Refutting Congress' allegations over ongoing political crisis in Uttarakhand, the Yoga guru on Friday clarified that he has nothing to do with the party's rebels.

Speaking to ANI, Ramdev said, “I have nothing to do with the rebel Congress' MLAs.”

Further targeting party's high command, he said, “Whatever I do or say I do it openly, not surreptitiously. Politics is not my focus. Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi should take care of their own affairs.”

Congress, while dragging Ramdev into the current political scenario of the state, had accused him of “hatching” a plot jointly with BJP leadership to topple the state government.

Uttarakhand Pradesh Congress president Kishore Upadhyay created a flutter in political circles when he said that the yoga guru and BJP chief Amit Shah had hatched a conspiracy together to dislodge the state government and the rebellion against Harish Rawat by the party’s MLAs was a result of this.

Claiming that he had enough evidence to substantiate his charge, Mr Upadhyay said “Ramdev was in touch with Congress rebels and is one of the key persons besides the BJP President involved in hatching a conspiracy against the ruling party.”

“He (Ramdev) worked like a BJP agent to foment a rebellion against the state government and topple it,” he added.
