Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev speaks about why he supports Narendra Modi for Prime Minister; BJP and Rahul Gandhi with The New Indian Express Editorial Director Prabhu Chawla during Teekhi Baat on IBN7. Excerpts:
You have many avatars.
I was born in a house where parents were unlettered, I grew up in the face of many shortcomings. I have a dream to make the country better.
Your big dream has got constricted and limited to BJP.
For the past many years, in whichever state I go, the government has been giving me the status of state guest. Our aim is to finish corruption. I am nobody’s opponent, BJP and Modi are not my first priority, but the country is my first priority. I am with Modi on the basis of issues.
You are seen on every stage of the BJP...
I never went on BJP’s stage, anybody can come on my stage. I don’t believe in untouchability.
But you are singing praises of Modi...
We are only saying that the country needs good leadership. Respected Rahul Gandhi got into politics by inheritance, but he does not have a charismatic personality. Modi has proven himself in Gujarat.
But Rahul Gandhi was the one to get the ordinance reversed...
But who got the ordinance issued. If he had spoken the truth from Bofors to the Coal scam, we would have made him Prime Minister. He should gather strength to speak what all wrong his family has done till today.
For everything, you hold the mother and son responsible.
Prabhuji, tell the truth. Is the country running the way it should? Democracy has been put in a corner. So many scams have happened under their leadership. After they’ve done so many scams, will you call them honest...
Even Modi’s ministers are in jail, or will go to jail, some are under investigation, even Modi’s ministers are involved in corruption.
Modi has done no scam, but a lady from foreign land has turned India and its democracy into her fiefdom.
The country has chosen her, she has got the seats.
More than 300 MPs will together form the government this time and Congress will get less number of seats.
Do you have any proof against Sonia and Rahul?
She has taken no position, but running the government from the shadows. Which means tomorrow if any bungling comes out, Sardarji will have to take the blame. There is a Prime Minister who has no existence, and a lady is directing him.
Modi will be made PM?
Till Modi is with the country, we will be with him.
