Baba back in Delhi

New Delhi: Returning to Delhi three weeks after he was bundled out from here, yoga guru Baba Ramdev, said here on- Sunday that if any black money was found with him, it could be declared national property.

‘If the government finds any black money with me, they can declare it national property,’Ramdev said while addressing a press conference in the capital.

Weeks after he was forced to quit Delhi, Baba Ramdev returned here Sunday to meet Raj Bala, 51, who is at the G. B. Pant Hospital since suffering spinal injuries in a police crackdown on the yoga guru post midnight June 4.

‘Behen Raj Bala is in very critical condition. Only a miracle can save her once the ventilator is removed,’he said.

“ This government is not only corrupt but also cruel. If I had not asked the people to stay calm, there would have been a pool of dead bodies,” he added. He attacked the government claiming that it has no will to fight corruption or create a Lokpal to check the menace.

Ramdev said he would continue his fight against corruption alongside “ anybody from any party, any religion” willing to fight the menace but he did not make it clear whether he would join Anna Hazare on August 16 when the latter relaunches his campaign for a strong Lokpal. Holding that he was “ not a mask” for BJP or RSS, he asked why Prime Minister Manmohan Singh wrote a letter to him and four ministers, including Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, drove to airport to meet him “ if I was communal or a naxal or a terrorist”.
