He said he had come to Delhi on the eve of the 36th anniversary of the imposition of emergency and asserted that the situation was very much similar to the emergency. At Ramlila Maidan, the police did not come to arrest me, they wanted to kill me. I wont give any evidence right now, because the case is pending with the Supreme Court, said Ramdev. He added that police attacked his supporters when they tried to extinguish the fire, which started on the stage.
The attempt to set the stage on fire was again an attempt to kill me. They attacked my supporters who were trying to extinguish the fire. Ramdev also lashed out at the way the government reacted to his protest, saying that if they suspected that he was doing something illegal, then why did four ministers go to the airport to meet him when he arrived. Also why did Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee write letters to him.
Government doesnt wants to see Ramdev alive. If its a mistake, then well commit such mistakes many times, he thundered.
With the government trying to expose him over his thriving yoga business, Ramdev asserted that he was innocent. If the government finds any black money with me, they can declare it national property, he said. He dared the government to come clean on the issue of black money. If its not their money, then I ask, why are they afraid of declaring it a national property. I have uploaded all the details of our account in the website. The government should do the same, he said.
After reaching Delhi, Ramdev rushed to G. B. Pant Hospital where the 51- yar- old Rajbala was being treated and invoked her condition as the governments tactic of repression against those protesting corruption and black money.
Rajbala suffered spinal injuries in the June 4 police crackdown.
Bhrastachaar and atyachar ( corruption and cruelty) was the new rallying cry of Ramdev, who said that his fight was not illegal and asserted that nobody can silence him.
Behen Rajbala is in very critical condition. Only a miracle can save her once the ventilator is removed, he said. If she lives, she wont be able to walk again, 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. Ramdev also alleged that there were attempts at rape during the midnight crackdown. There was attempt to rape the women and instances of molestation… human rights were violated. We will give the proof related to this when the time comes, he said.
Rejecting the charges of being the face of communal forces – an allegation made by some Congress leaders – he said it was a smear c&aign. I am not the face of any party or organisation, I am not communal, I am only the face of billions of Indians, he said.
