In a statement to the press, Thackeray said that such an undemocratic and shameless government should be pulled down immediately.

" It is shocking that those who were doing peaceful agitation were beaten up and their pandal was vandalised," Shiv Sena spokesperson Neelam Gorhe said.

" We express strong condemnation of the UPA governmentalt39s alt39 shaitani rajalt39," she said.

With talks with the government breaking down, police swooped down on Baba Ramdev and his supporters a little after midnight and removed him from the scene after using teargas shells and resorted to lathicharge on his supporters to end his day- old indefinite hungerstrike on black money issue.

Shiv Senaalt39s Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut said the pre- dawn police swoop at Delhialt39s Ramlila Maidan was because of the deep hatred that the Congress has for the saffron colour.

" Just because the colour of Ramdevalt39s robes was saffron, the Congress government took such an action. Otherwise, it would not have dared to take such a step," Raut told reporters here. He said his party does not believe in the politics of fasting.

But Ramdev was conducting his agitation peacefully, the Sena leader said adding, " My party condemns such kind of high- handedness by authorities in the cover of darkness."
