Yoga guru-turned-political activist says he will take a call on contesting 2014 general elections after his anti-corruption agitation in August.

Yoga guru Ramdev today said he would take a call on contesting the 2014 general elections depending upon the success of his agitation scheduled next month in Delhi. 

"At this juncture I am concentrating on bringing back black money from abroad, for implementing a strong Lokpal Bill. However, if support pours in for Bharat Swabhiman Sangathan, I will think about joining mainstream politics," Ramdev told reporters.

He was in the city to garner support for the August 9 protest to be held in Delhi under the aegis of Bharat Swabhiman Sangathan. The proposed stir will be backed by Team Anna, Ramdev said, adding that "we have not decided when the agitation will end".

On allowing FDI in retail sector, Ramdev said doing so will only benefit foreign companies.
