New Delhi, Jun 3: People who are part of corruption cases and hoarding black money, should be tried in a fast-track court and awarded death penalty if found guilty, said Baba Ramdev.

"Our courts have a backlog of 3.5 crore cases and corruption and black money cases are being heard by the same courts. We should have separate courts to deal with corruption cases and exemplary punishment should be meted to the culprits. They should be given death sentence. They should be hanged to death," said Ramdev while addressing a gathering at Ram Lila Ground, Delhi.

"If the entire black money is brought back to the country, then poverty will be abolished. Indian currency will be stronger than the dollar and pound. India was once the leader in every sphere of the world. It was economically most strong and had rulers who were virtuous. Now our country is at the bottom of every development index and at the top of corruption, population explosion, poverty and crime," added Ramdev.

Baba began addressing his speech by thanking the crowd for their support in his movement against corruption.

"Countries like USA, UK, Germany and Japan are called powerful nations but these countries have debt of several lakhs of crores. In India there are many people who have several crores in black money and they have kept it in foreign countries. We have to bring back the money stashed in foreign countries," said Baba stating that he would begin his fast on Saturday, Jun 4.
