Notice to Ramdev over Yoga Mahotsav
The Election Commission in Delhi Tuesday issued notice to yoga guru Baba Ramdev for politicising his 'Yoga Mahotsav' held here Sunday.
"We had given him permission to organise the Yoga Mahotsav and the Shahadat Divas but the monitoring team present there has given us enough facts that the entire programme was politicised," Mona Pruthi, north Delhi district election officer, told IANS.
The state election commission said that by inviting Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi to the programme, the event became political where the yoga guru even promised 20 crore votes for the BJP.
"It's clear there was a political agenda to the programme," Pruthi said.
Ramdev has been asked to reply to the notice by March 27.
