Swami Ramdev says 'no' to politics

Written by: Staff

Ranchi, Feb 22 (UNI) A day after alleging that the Communist parties were anti-national, yoga guru Swami Ramdev today said that he will never join politics.

Addressing a state government sponsored yoga camp here, he said, ''As a sanyasi (renunciate), I belong to everyone. My duty is to work for expansion of yoga and for that I seek everyone's help, even the politicians, but that doesn't mean I have anything to do with any party. I will never join politics in my life.'' ''I will praise anyone who comes forward for expansion of yoga but at the same time, I cannot spare anyone who comes in its way. If someone osbtructs the expansion of yoga, which is a boon to mankind, he is undoubtably anti-national,'' he said.

On CPI(M) leader Brinda Karat's allegations about use of human bones in his medicines, Swami Ramdev said, ''Those who alleged were opposed by all, cutting across party lines. Even RJD president Lalu Prasad came openly to defend the medicines in his own style.'' Swami Ramdev, during the third day of his week-long yoga camp here yesterday, had alleged the Communist parties were anti-national and a revolution should be started to bring them on the national track.

He was reacting to a Public Interest Litigation PIL) filed at Jharkhand High Court by a senior CPI leader to prevent the state goverment from including yoga in school syllabus.
