KOHIMA, FEB 26 (NEPS): Noted Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev said he would continue his crusade against corruptions and asked citizens to join the movement. Talking to pressmen after his historic Yoga Class here at 16 Assam Rifles ground was over on Saturday, the Yoga Guru also hinted launching of his own political party in near future to fight the scourge of corruption in the country.
Asked about his reactions on the Congress leaders’ demand to probe to his assets, Baba Ramdev said the Government was free to do so any time anywhere. He however disclosed that Rs 400 lakh crore have been spirited away to foreign banks by “corrupt and the dishonest.” “If this money is brought back to our country, India will be ten times richer than the United States of America,” he said. “Each village in the country will get about Rs 100 crore each for development if we distribute this money spirited away in foreign banks.”
The Yoga Guru who launched his “Bharat Swabhiman Yatra (The Journey of India’s Pride)” from Dwaraka, Gujarat in mid 2010, disclosed that it would focus its fight mainly on five points: to eradicate corruption, black money and corrupt practices; to bring back the huge looted money of about Rs 400 lakh crore, hidden in foreign countries; to end conspiracy of foreign governments and their companies to loot the country and to build the character of the country’s citizens.
