India has woken up to corruption: Ramdev



Two days after he ended his fast, yoga guru Ramdev was on Tuesday discharged from hospital and said he did not commit any "sin" by demanding action against corruption and would continue his campaign for return of black money stashed away abroad.

"We want that people with clean background should only go to Parliament and assemblies. We want the Rs 4 lakh crore black money stashed away abroad to be brought back," Ramdev told media persons after being discharged from the Himalayan Hospital in Dehradun.

"We have not committed any sin by waging a war against corruption and seeking return of black money from foreign countries. The fight against corruption will continue with the help of all countrymen till the last breath. India has woken up to corruption," he said.

Forty-six-year-old Ramdev said the movement was started for the welfare of people so that children of poor farmers can also become doctors and engineers.

Criticising the government for the crackdown on his supporters at Ramlila Grounds in Delhi, he said what his supporters faced there "will not go waste".

"In the corrupt system, there will be a sea change," he said, expressing support for Rajbala, who is battling for life after suffering spinal injuries at Ramlila Grounds.

The yoga guru ended his nine-day long fast on June 11 following appeals by Sri Sri Ravishankar and other spiritual leaders. He had gone on a hunger strike on June 4 demanding tougher anti-corruption laws.
