Terming Prime Minister Manmohan Singh as an "honest person", yoga guru Ramdev on Sunday asked him to make his Cabinet "corruption free."

He threatened the government with a "fight to the finish" by August for bringing back black money stashed away abroad.

"The prime minister was forced to give a statement on illegal mining. We all know that Manmohan Singh is an honest person and we all respect him. But people expect him to make his Cabinet corruption free...Please fulfill your democratic duties," Ramdev said at the Jantar Mantar in Delhi, at the joint one-day fast with activist Anna Hazare.

Recalling Dr Singh's statement that hunger and malnutrition are a 'national shame', he said mere statements will not solve the problem.

Referring to the issue of black money, he alleged that Rs 400 lakh crore of Indian money was stashed abroad and if the amount was brought back to the country, the nation would become "far superior" to China and the United States.

"We need to bring back black money. I appeal to the people of the country to join this fight. We are intensifying this fight. From today, we are intensifying our protest to bring back black money stashed abroad and want all of the countrymen to be part of the fight to finish by August," he said before the start of the fast.

He claimed that FDI in India worth Rs 20 lakh crore holds the "key" to people involved in stashing black money abroad.

"If the government names the actual owners of the FDI, the puzzle of black money will be solved," he said.
