Baba Ramdev
New Delhi, Jun 5: Hours after its controversial action against Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev, who was conducting a indefinite hunger strike protest at Ramlila Maidan, Delhi police filed a case of rioting against him.

Meanwhile, justifying Baba Ramdev's arrest or the so-called 'taking him under law's watch,' senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal said that the government's action against Baba was right.

Kapil Sibal said that Ramdev was taken to custody because he didn't fulfill his promise of ending the fast. He also added that the police action should be a lesson to everybody.

Gujarat Chief Minister and Bharatiya Janatha Party (BJP) leader Narendra Modi slammed UPA government for its action against Baba Ramdev. He asked Prime Minister Manmohna Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi to explain police's brutal action against the Yoga Guru. Modi defined action against Baba as the beginning of the end of the UPA.

The Samajwadi Party President Mulayam Singh said the government's decision on Baba Ramadev was non-democratic. He slammed Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh for calling Baba a "thug." Mulayam Singh said that Cogress party is the "bigger thug."

Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) president Ashok Singal said government action is not acceptable and it can't happen in a democratic country.

The social activist Hanna Azare, who earlier declared support to Baba Ramdev's indefinite hunger strike, told that government's action is a bolt on democracy.

Despite of mass agitation against government over Ramdev's issue, Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh continued to attack the Yoga Guru. He called Baba a "cheater," who is "duping people for ages."

"I have never seen him teaching yoga. People like Ramdev should not be allowed to run riot," claimed the Congress leader and also added, "Ramdev was playing politics and inciting people."
