Ramdev's "big announcement" soon; likely to court arrest


Baba Ramdev
New Delhi, Aug 13: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev's intent on taking his agitation to the next level has announced a jail bharo call to his supporters. With the government being unresponsive to his demands on the black money issue, Ramdev along with his supporters was planning to take out a protest march to the Parliament. The same was declined by the Delhi police after they refused to give permission to carry out a march from Jantar Mantar to the Parliament street. Sources have been quoted as saying that they will be allowed to march for a short distance and will then be arrested. [Read: Baba Ramdev Parliament protest march: LIVE updates]

On his last day of agitation, Ramdev is also expected to make his "big announcement" on the next course of action to take on the government in the black money issue. He has reportedly asked his supporters to pack their bags and get ready to go to jail. Baba Ramdev along with his hundreds of supporters is expected to court arrest in a dramatic turn of events.

The police, on the other hand, are handling things precariously since the security in the capital is already tight in lieu of the Independence Day celebrations on Aug 15. As many as 10 paramilitary companies have been deployed to control the crowd gathered at Ramdev's protest venue. 

Baba Ramdev is scheduled to announce his plans at 10 am on Monday to milling supporters at the Ramlila Maidan. On Sunday, Ramdev has been quoted as saying that his "fast will end in jail" and also asking his supporters whether they were ready to go to prisons for the "big revolution starting from Monday".
