Visakhapatnam: Eminent Yoga guru Baba Ramdev here on Friday disclosed that he would float a political party in June this year and field candidates to all Lok Sabha seats in the country.
Speaking to mediapersons, Baba Ramdev also justified the demands for smaller States coming from various quarters in the country. He observed that though small States are good for administrative convenience, there was an urgent need to root out corruption in the country before carving out new States.
Baba Ramdev said that there was nothing wrong with the demands for smaller States, since they could ensure decentralization of administration. However, adequate precautions should be taken while carving out smaller states, he added.
Lamenting that the politics in the country were highly polluted with rampant corruption, Baba Ramdev felt that those facing corruption charges would cause irreparable damage to the country if they are sent again to the Lok Sabha. He said that in order to cleanse the much maligned political system, he would announce a new political party in June this year. (NSS)
