Congress creating troubles for Ramdev, says Modi
BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi Sunday accused the Congress of creating problems for Baba Ramdev and said the yoga guru was fighting it out on his own strength.
Addressing a "Yoga Mahotsav" at the Ramlila Maidan here, Modi said yoga was an instrument to create awareness among people about their duties towards the country.
He said Ramdev was not affiliated to any political party and had a "fire" within him against the problems of corruption and black money.
Modi said many of the issues raised by Ramdev were his own issues now.
"Many try to trouble him (Ramdev). Despite that, he is fighting today. He is fighting against such a big 'sultanate' on his own strength," Modi said, without naming the Congress.
The Congress-led Uttarakhand government had registered cases against trusts associated with Ramdev for alleged violation of the Zamindari Abolition and Land Reforms Act and the Indian Stamps Act.
