In an earlier statement, Digvijay had commented that Baba Ramdev was “not a swami but an entrepreneur"; this time around said, “If Ramdev wants to do politics, he should give up yoga."
Baba Ramdev still is unrelenting with the Minister"s request and is going ahead with the fast-plans. With the last minute hectic parleys in the Claridges Hotel with Ministers Kapil Sibal and Subodh Kant Sahay, the outcome is yet to be known. Meanwhile, a spokesperson from Baba Ramdev"s camp informed that after his meeting with the Ministers he plans to visit the Bhagat Singh Park to pay his respect to Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev whose role he considers were vital to the freedom struggle. He also intends to visit the Rajghat.
Now, with all eyes on Ram Lila ground for the fast on Saturday, it will be interesting to know if there are any last minute alterations to the plan. It has been reported that a whopping Rs 18 crore have been infused into the fast-against-corruption campaign by Baba Ramdev.
