Baba Ramdev should focus on yoga and not interfere in politics, says Nirupam

Mumbai, Jan 4: Commenting on Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev’s recent remarks on Congress, Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam on Saturday said that Baba Ramdev is the biggest joke in our nation and should focus on yoga rather than interfering in politics.

“Baba Ramdev is the biggest joke in our nation. There is a huge difference in what he will say in the morning and what he will be saying in the evening,” said Nirupam.

“It is very difficult to predict him. He should focus on yoga and should not interfere in politics and should let us do our work,” he said.

Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev on Saturday had asked who could be more disastrous for the country than the Congress itself, and had added that the support to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi will be issue based.

Addressing a press conference, Ramdev said, “Who can be more disastrous for the country than the Congress itself? Modi is seen as a disastrous figure by the Congress because this is what he will cause to them in the elections.”

Ramdev, who will be making an announcement on January 5 in Delhi’s Talkatora Stadium, said, “Support to Modi will be on issues. Nation is built on policies, personality and intention. If policies of Modi and the charter of the BJP are in favour of bringing back the black money and tackling the corruption in this country, then we will be making an announcement regarding this year’s Lok Sabha elections. We have invited BJP president Rajnath Singh, party leader Arun Jaitley and Narendra Modi and they will put forward their opinions in the discussion.”

He said the Prime Minister has accepted his failure, in tackling corruption, price rise and poverty in the country, in his interaction with the media.

He stressed on removal of all the taxes paid by the citizen and said due to wrong policies of the Congress led-UPA Government, there is inflation in the country. He said there should be only one tax that should be levied —- the Bank Transaction Tax (BTT), which should be of one percent. He also demanded that 500 and 1000 rupees notes should be rolled back.
