Ramdev supporters vow to keep agitation alive
New Delhi, Aug 14 (ANI): Supporters of yoga guru Baba Ramdev, who ended his week-long fast on Tuesday, vowed to keep alive the agitation to bring back black money stashed away in offshore banks.
Supporters said they would continue the agitation by touring the country and awaken the people.
"The agitation will continue across the country and will spread public awareness. People, who are looting the country, spreading corruption and not bringing back black money, as it is their own money stashed away, will be brought to light in front of the public. Such corrupt people would not be voted to power in the next elections, so we will now take a tour of the country and awaken the public," said a saint and supporter of Baba Ramdev.
"Even if I had died fasting, then I would have been reborn, because I would not get this golden chance of fasting with a saint again. I had requested Baba not to sit on fast, because the country and I do not want to lose him," said an elderly woman and supporter of Baba Ramdev.
Delhi police had detained Baba Ramdev along with thousands of his supporters on Monday, while he was marching towards the Parliament. Ramdev had announced to take his protest to Parliament.
The police took Baba Ramdev to a waiting bus after the yoga guru called for political change and courted arrest. However, later on Monday evening, police officials had released Baba Ramdev and his supporters, but they refused to disperse. However, Baba Ramdev said that his agitation is over, but the movement will continue.
He reiterated that he was not having a political agenda.
"We are leaving because we have won and not because we have lost. Our agitation is over, but the movement will continue. We are leaving not because we have lost, but because we have won. We are not beggars, we are asking for the rights of our country. And if we don't get it, we will fight for it," said Baba Ramdev.
"We haven't asked for a separate country, we haven't even asked for a village like the Pandavas. We have just asked for our rights. If we wanted, we could have stopped the Prime Minister from hoisting the flag on Independence Day. The Congress has written its name on the top of the list of corrupt," he added. (ANI)
