'RSS was not behind the stir'
"The RSS was not behind the stir launched by Ramdev seeking repatriation of black money stashed illegally in foreign banks but we have extended all support to this agitation," Bhagwat said on Sunday night.
He said that the RSS in its recent meeting had adopted a resolution to extend all support to Baba Ramdev.

'RSS cannot remain a mute spectator'
"The RSS cannot remain a mute spectator to the social revolution taking place against corruption and black money. Therefore, it has asked its cadres to join the agitation," Bhagwat said.
Talking about black money stashed in foreign banks, Bhagwat said it certainly belonged to people from the higher strata of the society.
"It is not that a poor man has collected his money and deposited it in the Swiss bank," he said.

'How has the NAC been constituted'
"If Ramdev and Hazare are outsiders, under which clause of the Constitution has the NAC been constituted? Does it not comprise outsiders," he asked.

Baba Ramdev continues hunger strike
The Baba was caught dressed as a woman, while heading away from the camp towards the railway station.
A special plane took him to Dehradun and from there he was taken to his ashram in Haridwar by road. He continues with his indefinite fast against corruption.
