Shimla, April 28: Defying ban on him by the Election Commission (EC), Baba Ramdev on Monday, April 28 held a press conference in Shimla, Himachal Pradesh and provided proof of his innocence. Justifying his controversial honeymoon remark involving Rahul Gandhi and Dalit women, the yoga guru displayed a picture where he was seen washing off feet of Dalit women in Kolkata.

After showing the picture, Ramdev asked how can he insult Dalit women whom he respects like his mother? He also called that his remark involving Dalit women was misinterpreted.

"I have used the word honeymoon in a political context but they (Congress) changed the context. The Congress has used the Dalits. I say that Sonia Gandhi has insulted the Dalits," said Ramdev during the press conference.

Continuing his allegations against Congress leaders and Gandhi family, Ramdev said, "The Nehru family, the mother-son duo is responsible for the problems in the country. They have used their power to make (Robert) Vadra rich. They have used the poor to make money."

The yoga guru faced the criticism, protest from Dalit following his shocking comment in which he said, "He (Rahul Gandhi) goes to Dalits' house for honeymoon and picnic. Had he married a Dalit girl, then his luck could have clicked and he would have become the prime minister."

The Election Commission also banned social gatherings by Ramdev in Himachal Pradesh till May 16, the day when Lok Sabha election 2014 results will be declared.

The Election Commission (EC) earlier on Saturday issued fresh guidelines against making "malicious" statements about the private life of individuals. The EC said that if the orders are violated the person will not be allowed to hold programmes during polls.
