Earlier Ramdev said, "In the present situation, Narendra Modi appears as a man who is committed to development and one who can prevent corruption."
Mocking at the anti-Modi leaders within BJP, the yoga-guru said, "Those who cannot digest these qualities of Modi should do kapaal bhati (a yogic breathing exercise made famous by the Baba) and improve their digestion."
BJP and its President Rajnath Singh recently declared that they would announce its PM candidate name at right moment. However, the question regarding Modi have been haunting the party. According to experts, the party should declare its PM nominee's name ahead of the crucial general election.
