JK political parties back Ramdev's campaign

Baba Ramdev
Jammu, Jun 3: Terming Jammu and Kashmir as the epicentre of corruption, Socialist Democratic Party (SDP) and National Panthers Party (JKNPP) today (June 3) backed yoga guru Baba Ramdev's hunger strike against corruption and black money.

"We fully support yoga guru in his satyagarha against corruption and black money. We want total weeding out of corruption not only from the country but also from Jammu and Kashmir," SDP Chairman Darashka Andrabi told reporters here.

"Jammu and Kashmir is the second most corrupt state in the country. People of the state are fed up with corruption. Jammu and Kashmir is its (corruption's) epicentre," she said.

Andrabi said in order to support Ramdev's movement "from Kashmir to Kanykumari", the party will send a batch of 200 youths from the state to take part in the campaign in Delhi.

She alleged that a major cause of militancy in Jammu and Kashmir is that funds released by the Central government are not used for legitimate purposes and are bungled.

Backing Ramdev's campaign against corruption, JKNPP Chairman Bhim Singh said, "Congress is the mother of corruption and has destroyed the country during its successive decades-long rule... I fully support Baba. I want end of corruption and corrupt people including in Jammu and Kashmir, which is one of the most corrupt places in the country."
