After the meeting, the yoga guru wished luck to PNS candidates who'll be contesting the forthcoming PMC elections. "Although I don't want to get into politics, I always support people who are for cleansing politics. My blessings are with the PNS candidates," Ramdev said.
Speaking to MiD DAY, Velankar said, "We don't get involved in any religious or spiritual activity, however we accept Baba's best wishes. This will surely boost our morale." Meanwhile, commenting on Anna Hazare's fight for a strong Lokpal Bill, Ramdev said, "Although Lokpal Bill is a very important subject, getting the black money stacked in foreign banks is also very imperative."
He added that his campaign to get the black money back in the country would intensify in 2012. A source from Bharat Swabhiman Trust revealed that Ramdev would start a huge movement next year. The campaign will supposedly begin from Noida.
Akin to Anna Hazare's plan, Ramdev too had declared that he'd tour all the five states that face polls next year. "I'll campaign against all the parties who haven't cleared their stand on the black money issue," he said.
