Bangalore, Dec 29: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Saturday said that he will go on "door-to-door campaigning" for the BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.

According to a report, while speaking at the Press Club in Bangalore, Ramdev said that he will organize a door-to-door campain called "Vote for Modi" in the run up to the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

He also compared Modi with the Congress party's Vice President Rahul Gandhi saying that latter is a 'baccha' (small child) in front of the former who is like the "Himalayas".

"Rahul has become a zero from hero. He hasn't done anything in the past 10 years, what will he do now," he said.

He also said that he "hopes to get answers from Modi on January 5 regarding problems faced by the common man in the fields of agriculture, education and health."

He also came down heavily upon newly elected Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal saying that he made 'three mistakes'.

"He (Kejriwal) didn't stick to his promise of neither lending nor taking support from any party. He went on to take support from the Congress. He also passed comments against Anna Hazare", Ramdev said.

"The day they file an FIR against Sheila Dikshit, the support will end", he said.

Earlier also, Ramdev had said that he had "lots of hope and full faith" in Modi, but added that his support was for Modi and not for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

"I want to see that Modi romps home with 300 seats in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls and would put in my bit in doing so," he said.
