Haridwar, Sep 14: BJP on Sunday acknowledged the role played by Ramdev's countrywide campaign launched ahead of the Lok Sabha polls in the formation of Narendra Modi government at the Centre.

It also promised him all support in his efforts to popularise yoga and ayurveda internationally and revive the dying Indian languages and literature. Speaking after inaugurating the newly built Seva Sadan building at Patanjali Yogpeeth here, BJP President Amit Shah  showered praise on Ramdev for his sustained campaign to earn international acceptance for the ancient Indian practice of yoga.

He also praised Ramdev's close aide Acharya Balkrishna for creating a renewed interest all over the world in Ayurveda, describing it as a discipline which had the ability to cure all ills.

"Bharat Swambhiman Trust's commitment to revive ayurveda  and yoga highlights its vision of a disease-free world and the BJP government at the Centre will give all its support to this noble endeavour," Shah said.

He also said that the entire country was witness to the yoga guru's fight against corruption which also led to those in power at that time to register cases against him. Noting that there was nothing new in this fight between good and evil in this country, he said whenever evil reaches its acme, God incarnates himself to put an end to it.

"He (Ramdev) rose to fight against corruption and threats to democratic values in the country," he said.

Thanking the yoga guru for his sustained campaign which "contributed significantly to the formation of the Narendra Modi government at the Centre", he said all his future endeavours to save the Indian languages and literature and revive yoga and ayurveda, which had the capacity to create a disease free universe, will get all support from government.
