Conspiracy to kill my aide Balkrishna, alleges Ramdev

August 14, 2012 21:21 IST

Yoga guru Ramdev on Tuesday alleged that a conspiracy was being hatched to kill his close aide Balkrishna, who is currently lodged in a jail in Dehra Dun, and put the blame on him.

Soon after his arrival in Dehra Dun from New Delhi after ending his fast, Ramdev drove straight to Suddhowala jail to meet Balkrishna, whose judicial remand was on Monday extended by a CBI court for another 14 days in a case of forgery and violation of the Indian Passport Act.

"First put Acharya (Balkrishna) in jail. Then kill him and put the blame on the baba (me). This is their conspiracy," Ramdev told the media after meeting Balkrishna.

Ramdev also said that his campaign for bringing black money back home will continue and he would mobilise more support in this regard.

"The UPA does not want to bring back the black money as they have no time and are busy looting the nation," Ramdev said.

A day after he was arrested while trying to march to Parliament and later released, Ramdev, who spent the night with hundreds of supporters at the Ambedkar Stadium in the national capital, on Tuesday broke his six-day fast and a distinctly anti-Congress protest on the black money issue.
