Ramdev to support anti-graft stir in poll-bound UP

Allahabad: Yoga guru Ramdev on Thursday said he would garner support for his anti-corruption drive in the "politically-charged" atmosphere of Uttar Pradesh where Assembly polls are scheduled to be held early next year.

"The Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections in 2012 will prove to be a process that will set the tone for a nation-wide revolution and weed out corruption from the country," he told reporters on the first day of his two-day Yoga camp here.

"We will ensure that anti-corruption drive finds a voice in this politically-charged atmosphere and bringing back black money stashed away in tax havens and declaration of the same as national wealth become a major election issue," the yoga guru said.
