Baba Ramdev
New Delhi, Aug 10: In an hour long speech at Ramlila Maidan on Friday, Ramdev gave the UPA government ultimatum till Saturday to make public its agenda for bringing back black money.

"Our agenda is clear. Now the political parties have to declare their agenda. They have been given three days. After that we will inform them our way ahead," Ramdev said.

"Many people say I have no agenda. The agenda is to save the country. The people of the country will ask the government and all parties to spell out their agenda," he said.

He asked Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to demonstrate "political honesty and political will" in bringing back black money stashed away in foreign shores which can be spent on empowering the people.

He also claimed that terrorism and Naxalism in the country can be tackled if the government controls the flow of black money and the rising inflation.

"The government has the list of people who have stashed away black money in foreign shores. We don't want the names of those people, but at least disclose the amount. What is the harm in it? Why is the government reluctant?" he asked.

He said India can become the 'super power' in the world and the Army can become more powerful than those in China and the US if the black money is brought back and spent on people and national security.

"We need an honest Prime Minister. I want the current Prime Minister to demonstrate his political honesty and political will on the issue of black money," he said addressing the gathering at his three-day fast venue at Ramlila Ground here.
