Ramdev targets MPs again

May 07, 2012 23:30 IST

Yoga guru Ramdev on Monday continued his tirade against Members of Parliament, terming some of them as "corrupt, amoral and murderers".

"Some of the MPs sitting in Parliament are corrupt, amoral and murderers. People should not elect such persons to the nation's highest body," he said addressing a gathering at a yoga camp in Morena in the presence of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

In another controversial statement, the yoga guru, addressing a meeting on Sunday at Porsa town, had said "dacoits have been promoted and now they have come out of forests and reached Delhi."

"People should not elect such persons to Lok Sabha and Vidhan Sabha."

He later visited revolutionary leader Ram Prasad Bismil's ancestral village Barvai and paid tributes to him.

Ramdev charged people are facing a lot of problems because of inflation and the government is not doing anything to provide relief to them.

Those indulging in black marketing have no fear, Ramdev alleged said, adding he will fight till his last breath for bringing back black money stashed in foreign countries.

Earlier, the chief minister had a closed-door meeting with Ramdev at Morena which lasted for over one and half hours.

Meanwhile, Congress workers burnt an effigy of Ramdev at the collectorate.

Talking to reporters, District Congress President Rakesh Mawai alleged the yoga guru was working at the behest of the BJP.
