Yoga Guru, Baba Ramdev blessed UP chief Minister and the BSP leader, Mayawati by complimenting that she would be a better prime minister than Rahul Gandhi. She is already facing great attacks from the opposition for corruption misgovernance and this appreciation from the yoga Guru must have surely got others goose bumps.
Ramdev is on the roads of U.P to gather support from people for his campaign against corruption. When the question was raised if he is afraid of Mayawati, Ramdev said, “Behenji (Mayawati) appears to be ‘hard’ but is ‘soft’ from inside.” He also added that UP CM has more political and administrative skills to be the PM of India and Rahul is still a rising politician.
Ramdev says not against anyone in particular but all he wants is a corruption free country. He also said, Rahul should win the confidence of the Indian public by bringing back the black money stored in foreign countries and not act according to the people who flatter about him. If he accomplishes these tasks, he would be a worthy PM. “Though Manmohan Singh is personally very honest, he has been made helpless by the groups of corrupt people around him,” the yoga guru said. “If such a situation is allowed to prevail, it appears that the next session of the parliament would have to be convened at the Tihar Jail, he added.
