Ramdev threatens Manmohan, revolution in India on cards

Ramdev and Manmohan Singh
New Delhi, Aug 12: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Sunday, Aug 12 threatened Prime Minister Manmohan Singh saying that the ruling government may face a bigger revolution in the country if it does not come up with its plan of actions as per the demands raised by him. The yoga guru set the deadline till Sunday evening.

The three-day-long 'symbolic' fast protest by the yoga guru ended on Saturday and now he is expected to announce his next step of the protest on Sunday. Former Indian Army Chief VK Singh too is expected to share the dais with Ramdev at Ramlila Madian in Delhi.

While announcing about his deadline for the government and the Prime Minister, Ramdev said, "The Prime Minister should act on our demands by evening. Otherwise, message will go that he is not politically honest. He should demonstrate political will and honesty."

Without revealing his exact plan for the second step of the movement, Ramdev stated, "I am willing to continue the fast till the time government acts. But we will announce tomorrow morning, when we will end the fast."

"We will wait till evening (to hear from the government on our demands). Our three day deadline ends then. After that period is over, a roar will arise from this very Ramlila Maidan. We have not been taking names. But after then, we will take names who were in fault in this looting of country's wealth," added Ramdev.

"Only after a big decision from the government, we will leave Ramlila Maidan," clarified the yoga guru. It seems that he has hinted to go for an indefinite fast protest at Ramlila.

Earlier, he had urged the Prime Minister to disclose the names of persons who have stashed huge amount of black money in foreign countries.

"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?" questioned Ramdev.

Ramdev also spoke about the positive sides if government brings back black money stashed in foreign countries, especially in Swiss banks. "Terrorism and naxalism are the two challenges. The root cause of this is black money. The menace can be tackled if the issue is solved," he said.
