Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Tuesday dismissed suggestions of a rift with the Anna Hazare-led team and said he has asked his supporters to join the day-long fast by the social activist and his aides in New Delhi on Wednesday.
“We are with them (Anna Hazare-led group). There is no difference between Anna and me,” Baba Ramdev told reporters here.
He was responding to suggestions that there was a rift between him and the Anna Hazare-led team.
“Thousands of our activists will go to Delhi to participate in the Anna movement (scheduled for Wednesday. We do not have any hope with this government. It (government) has stifled the Lokpal Bill movement,” he said.
Mr. Hazare and other civil society members of the Lok Pal drafting committee will sit on a day-long fast to protest the crackdown on Baba Ramdev’s fast against corruption at Ramlila Maidan on Saturday night.
Baba Ramdev said he will not end his fast till the government accepts his demands to curb corruption and blackmoney.
“Our fast is on from June 4. There should not be any confusion about it…it will continue till this whole country is up against or united against corruption and blackmoney. We are doing satyagraha to wake up this government. If they don’t wake up then there will be protest..there will be huge protests in the whole country,” he said.
Baba Ramdev said many of his supporters are in Tihar jail in Delhi and asked the government to give their names so that he can help them. Hindu
