Baba Ramdev to end fast today, but continue 'movement'
New Delhi, Aug 11 (ANI): Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev, who threatened to continue his agitation 'full steam' if government does not look into his demands to bring back black money, will end his symbolic three-day fast at Ramlila Maidan today.
Addressing his supporters at the Ramlila Maidan here today, Baba Ramdev said: "Our principles will not change, but our strategy needs to change according to the time."
On Friday, Baba Ramdev said the movement will continue for at least next 50 years.
While asking the people to decide on the next step after the three-day fast, he made the proclamation that he had decided on the future strategy. "The strategy of our movement is to stay for at least for the next 50 years. I am not going to deviate from my mission for the next 100 years," said Baba Ramdev who seemed to be confident of living for another hundered years.
"We have to make sacrifices, but we have to do some work. So, don't sacrifice yourselves before the mission is complete. But when it will come to sacrifices then don't shirk back. The agenda should be quite clear," he added, while instilling confidence and enthusiasm in his supporters.
Baba Ramdev further reiterated that black money should be brought back to the country, and asked his supporters to gear themselves up for a bigger challenge ahead.
Asserting that his fight for Lokpal Bill is not over yet, the yoga guru had earlier on Thursday said the government should pass this bill in the ongoing Monsoon Session of Parliament.
Ramdev reiterated that he had no political ambitions, except continue fighting for the common man.
"The government must bring back black money stashed by Indians abroad. The government must pass the Lokpal Bill in this session. Make CBI independent from government control," he said, while listing out some of his demands.
The second round of Ramdev's protest has witnessed an expansion of his agenda from black money to Lokpal Bill, making CBI independent and a more transparent procedure for appointing Election Commissioners, CAG, CVC and Director CBI.
Baba Ramdev's last outing at the Ramlila Maidan, in June last year, saw a midnight police crackdown with authorities claiming that he violated norms agreed upon.
He was caught by police, while trying to flee from the protesting venue in a woman's attire. (ANI)
