Baba Ramdev ends Fast, vacates Ambedkar Stadium
TNI Bureau: Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev finally ended his fast and vacated the Ambedkar stadium on Tuesday. Before calling off the 5-day agitation, he targeted the Prime Minister and Congress in his anti-black money protest speech.
Baba broke his fast with a glass of lime juice offered by two children. He also had food offered by a 100-year-old man. Baba and his supporters were given 1 pm as deadline to vacate the stadium. He will leave for Haridwar, will take a dip in the Ganga as he has not taken bath for five days.
However, he dared the government saying hs protest could have stalled the Independence Day celebrations and could have stopped the Prime Minister from unfurling the tricolour on August 15.
He slammed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh saying, he should not go to the Gurudwara and insult Guru Granth Sahib, he should become a baba like us.
He said that the Congress has proved that it is the most corrupt party as all the parties backed his movement against black money except it.
He claimed that all the political parties even NCP, BSP and SP have come out in support of the movement except Congress, which clearly showed that the government is not in favour of bringing back black money to India.
While on Monday, top NDA members like Nitin Gadkari, Sharad Yadav and Subramanian Swamy shared the stage with Ramdev, on Tuesday it was senior lawyer and BJP leader Ram Jethmalani to come forward.
