Calling on all of India to support his agitation against black money and graft, Ramdev said, “India could have won gold if there was a competition for corruption in the Olympics.” The crowds cheered and clapped enthusiastically, to which Ramdev said, “This is not a matter to applaud.”
He started the day with a yoga camp, before addressing the crowd in a speech that pitched for his movement against black money as well as for a stringent Lokpal bill, an independent CBI and a citizen’s charter. “If the CBI is made independent, politics will become clean, because CBI is being used to blackmail opposition leaders,” he said.
The three-day symbolic fast started on Thursday, and the organisers are expecting more crowds over the extended three-day weekend.
