Ramdev holds roadshow in Phagwara, asks youth to think big

Phagwara, Apr 24: Yoga guru Ramdev on Thursday held a road-show in Phagwara in support of BJP candidate from Hoshiarpur Lok Sabha seat Vijay Sampla.

Before the show, he made a brief stop-over outside a private college along the National Highway and asked students to think big and do big and act as a catalyst of change.

Administration disallows Ramdev's PC, leaves yoga guru fuming

The district administration today disallowed Ramdev to hold a press conference at Zila Parishad complex here on the ground that the premises belonged to Punjab government, leaving the yoga guru fuming.

The district administration granted him permission to hold yoga camp but strictly warned its local organisers not to use the place for election campaign of BJP-SAD candidate Vijay Sampla.

Deputy Commissioner-cum-District Election Officer Tanu Kashyap said the press club -- venue of the media meet -- was located in the Zila Parishad complex, whose premises belonged to the state government.

Meanwhile, a fuming Ramdev condemned the district administration for disallowing him to hold the press conference and said the freedom of free speech and writing, granted by the Constitution, was being snatched.

"Right of expressing views should not be disallowed," he told reporters. Ramdev slammed the Congress and exuded confidence that BJP led by Narendra Modi would win more than 300 seats in Lok Sabha.
