Haridwar: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev, who was bundled out of Delhi, Sunday night said he will resume his agitation against corruption here on Monday after he was denied permission to enter Uttar Pradesh to continue his protest.
“No one should violate law and so I am not going to Delhi. I was not allowed to reach Noida in UP to continue the protest. Now it will happen here from tomorrow,” he told a press conference.
He said the government can stop him from entering Delhi for not more than 15 to 30 days and he will come again to the national capital.
Asked why he was not allowed to enter UP, the yoga guru said chief minister Mayawati was in Bangalore and she would return only tomorrow.
“I think this was an administrative decision. After seeing the incidents of last night, the chief minister had condemned the incident,” he said.
He said if the rulers of the country were honest enough, then there was no need for him or social activist Anna Hazare to hit the streets to protest against corruption.
The yoga guru said he will join Hazare on Wednesday for the hunger strike announced by the Gandhian to protest police action against his followers if he gets permission to enter Delhi.
On Congress leader Digvijay Singh’s attack on him, Ramdev said he will not comment on statements of “irresponsible” people.
Refering to certain allegations against his close aide Acharya Balkrishna, he said these were baseless and he has not done anything wrong.
