Baba Ramdev
New Delhi, Jun 27: It seems that the war between the UPA government and Baba Ramdev will continue for a long time as sources claimed that multi-agency probe has been ordered on the yoga guru to investigate his alleged role in several financial irregularities.

The government's order of multi-agency probe on Ramdev came just a day after when the yoga guru ruled out government's order and visited his injured follower Rajabala at the hospital in Delhi. Rajbala was reportedly injured during the police attack at Ramlila Maidan to disperse Ramdev and his followers.

Earlier, Ramdev along with aide Acharya Balkrishna announced the details during a press conference in Haridwar on Jun 9. Ramdev's announcement was an attempt to stop his critics, unfortunately, the attempt went in vain.

Acharya Balkrishna informed that the total capital of the trust is - Rs 249.53 crore. Capital held by Patanjali is - Rs 164.8 crore. The yoga guru aide also claimed that the trust spent Rs 249 crore in charity. However, the declared capital involving the four trusts run by him (Ramdev) totalled Rs 426.19 crore while the expenditure incurred on them amounted to Rs 751.02 crore. The latest revelation shocked many and fueled up the controversies on Baba.

Meanwhile, the media report claiming that Baba Ramdev charged insane money from followers to give them his blessings created a dent in his image. According to reports that quoted bewildered supporters who revealed that the Baba charged somewhere between Rs 10,000 to Rs 50,000 for blessings in close proximity of supporters and Rs 50,000 to Rs 1 lakh if the fans want Baba to distribute prasad at their homes and a hefty tag of Rs 5 lakh to Rs 20 lakh if you want the Baba to stay in your home.

But with the sea of allegations mounting on Ramdev, the feud between the Baba and the government is getting more and more personal in nature and the real issue of corruption is only getting sidelined.
