India can win gold for corruption, says Ramdev

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.
