Ramdev challenges govt, vows to join Anna in Delhi

Baba Ramdev, Anna Hazare
Haridwar/New Delhi, Jun 22: Baba Ramdev, who was once booted out from the national capital, has vowed to return to Delhi to join the Gandhian crusader Anna Hazare in his (Hazare's) protest against corruption.

"The government cannot prevent someone who represents the voice of crores of people from coming to Delhi," claimed Ramdev's key aide Acharya Balkrishna who was also one of the victims of Delhi police's alleged "brutality".

Anna Hazare earlier had reiterated to resume his fast-unto-death protest against the UPA government if the Lokpal bill fails to be tabled in the upcoming monsoon session of the Parliament which will be held from Aug 1 till Sep 8.

Ramdev had started a fast-protest against government's inaction in black-money issue in Delhi's Ramlalila Maidan. However, the agitation by the yoga-guru and his followers was hampered by the government by a sudden police crackdown at the Ramlila Maidan.

After the drama in Ramlila, Delhi government banned the yoga guru from entering the national capital, though Ramdev continued his fast which ended in a hospital in Dehradun.

Now, many speculate that Ramdev's decision to join Hazare is to restore his reputation which was marred to some extent during his protest against the government.
