Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Tuesday said the Congress was the only political party which had problems with his crusade against corruption.

"The Congress seems to be the only political party which has problems with my drive against graft, my efforts to bring back black money stashed away in tax havens abroad," he said.

"It is not (Chief Minister) Mayawati but Maya (black money) stashed away abroad that is responsible for the plight of the poor," Ramdev told reporters.

Referring to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's remarks about the people of Uttar Pradesh at a rally on Monday, he said "the crown prince should know that more than 80 per cent people of the country are living like beggars."

"If he does some soul searching, he will come to know which political party is most responsible for all this," the yoga guru said.

"I have only three demands -- bring back black money from abroad, abolish all currency notes of high denominations and all taxes, and keep a modest transaction tax in place," Ramdev said.

He said he would get surveys conducted to demonstrate the extent of public support enjoyed by his proposed measures.
