As his Sunday evening ultimatum to the Centre expired, yoga guru Baba Ramdev warned of a “big revolution”, if his demands were not met by Monday.
Moving from a softer approach in the morning to a hardline stance later, Ramdev targeted the PM, to whom he had shot off a letter underlining his Sunday ultimatum. “You are being hailed as an honest person. We don’t doubt your personal honesty. But you will have to show political honesty as well,” he said.
On the fourth day of his fast, Ramdev was joined by ex-Army chief V K Singh and former Team Anna member Kiran Bedi at Ramlila Maidan. “I am willing to continue the fast till the government acts. But we will announce on Monday morning when we will end the fast,” Ramdev said.
Earlier, Ramdev had said he would announce his plans by Sunday evening. He said that he was ready to take his fast to prison, along with his followers. “What is the danger that Congress perceives in bringing back black money or declaring it a national asset if they do not own it… We will now go from village to village saying Congressmen may own this money and hence, they do not want to declare it a national asset,” he said.
