Narendra Modi and Baba Ramdev
New Delhi, March 17: Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev seems to have been cornered by supporters and followers of Narendra Modi. After slamming the prime ministerial candidate of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Ramdev on March 17 took an U-turn.

Ramdev on Sunday was quoted as saying that Modi was in a hurry to become the PM of the country. However, rubbishing all media reports, Ramdev now claimed that he was misquoted.

"I have not made any comment about Modi being in a hurry to become PM. This is a wrong allegation made by the media," said Ramdev.

Ramdev had on Sunday, voiced his strong objection to some of the candidates being fielded by the BJP and its allies and had warmed that he would support the party only if they cleaned up their act.

"BJP is overenthusiastic about winning the general elections this time," Ramdev said adding that it needed to be patient and that there was resentment within the party due to "announcement of candidature of some persons".

Ramdev reportedly had said that his support to BJP and Modi was based on specific issues. However, he expressed his full confidence in NDA. He said that BJP-led NDA would get an absolute majority.

"The people were fed up with misrule, corruption and anarchy of the Congress-led UPA government," he had said.
