Ramdev announces support for Modi

New Delhi, Jan 5 : Yoga guru Baba Ramdev Sunday officially announced his support for BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.


At a programme organised by Ramdev's Bharat Swabhiman Trust, the yoga guru said "Congress's anti-people policies destroyed the country".

"I had two options in front of me, Modi-ji, and the 'shahzada' who has not done anything for the country," Ramdev said, referring to Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi.

"I know Modi-ji has the will to take on the corrupt Congress," he said.

Ramdev was initially a supporter of Anna Hazare's India Against Corruption campaign, which split later with Arvind Kejriwal forming the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

Ramdev, however, refused to speak on the AAP.

Asked about the AAP's prospects in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, Ramdev said: "We will not talk about third or fourth options here."
