New Delhi, May 6 UNI | 3 months ago

Yoga guru Baba Ramdev and staunch supporter of BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi today moved the Supreme Court seeking directions to club all the cases filed against him for making derogatory remarks against Dalits.

Baba Ramdev, in his petition, has contended that he did not mean any insult to the Dalit community and the cases filed in various parts of the country are politically motivated and are aimed at harassing him.

He has also said he has great regard for Dalits and for the weaker sections of the society.

The petitioner has been booked under SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act which is a non-bailable offence.

He has also sought a stay against his arrest.
