As the party president Nitin Gadkari announced earlier on Sunday, Jun 5, BJP held a 24-hour agitation - "satyagraha" and accused Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi "directly responsible" for the forcefull eviction of Baba Ramdev from the national capital.
Senior BJP leaders Sushma Swaraj, LK Advani, Niting Gadkari and Arun Jaitley joined the protest against the government and claimed, "We want to tell Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi that even Indira Gandhi during emergency couldn't take away the democratic right, they aren't going to succeed now."
While Sushma Swaraj was seen dancing and singing whole night at Delhi's Rajghat, other leaders seemed to have enjoyed the night with anti-government chorus and music.
On Monday, the Supreme Court also issued a notice to the central government over the eviction on Baba Ramdev. The yoga guru had been holding a hunger strike in Delhi demanding to bring back black money stashed abroad. He (Ramdev) was booted out from the capital after police attacked the Baba and his followers at Ramlila Maidan on Saturday, Jun 4.
However, Ramdev resumed his fast in Haridwar and urged a nation-wide protest against Manmohan Singh and his government. Meanwhile, BJP, welcoming the Supreme Court's order, claimed that the party will move to the President Pratibha Patil over the Baba Ramdev issue.
