Ramdev, on Sunday, backed Modi and said that the 'toilets first, temples later' cause of BJP for the upcoming Assembly elections was necessary and it would make them win 300 seats in the Lok Sabha. "Some people are pointlessly criticising Modi's remarks," he told the reporters.
He went on to add that both toilets and temples were needed in the country. "Temples are our culture and toilets are an absolute necessity," he said.
Keeping in mind the Lok Sabha elections slated to be held next year, he said that along with the elections in five states this year, it will create history in Indian politics.

"Assembly polls in five states and the 2014 Lok Sabha polls will create history. Modi-led BJP and its allies will win more than 300 seats in the Lok Sabha elections, while the Congress- led UPA will be limited to 100 seats," Ramdev said.
Earlier Modi's comment was applauded and criticised by many. While some said that his comment was and intentions were true, some criticised him for associating toilets and temples together.
