The yoga guru, Baba Ramdev, who was supposed to move on a 'fast track' (fast unto death) against corruption on Saturday, June 4, compelled the government to recover the black money deposited by Indians in Swiss banks.
As more trouble have been brewing for the government specially after Anna Hazare's hunger strike, the Cabinet have requested the 'yoga guru' not to undergo 'satyagraha' against corruption and black money.
In a two hour meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Political Affairs in New Delhi, Monday, May 30, it is believed to have deliberated on ways that could be adopted to deal with the matter. This meeting was chaired by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
The discussion covered many aspects on how to stop this disaster of hunger strike. The Cabinet has decided to set up a new panel to draw the black money parked in Swiss Banks. Also, it has come to a conclusion to depute some ministers who would have a cool conversation with Ramdev and persuade him not to undertake the hunger strike.
The government's first attempt to appoint Urban Development Minister Kamal Nath and Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) Chairman Sudhir Chandra for this task of persuasion has failed.
