After breaking his six-day fast against corruption, Yoga guru Ramdev today took a holy dip in River Ganga at Har-Ki-Pauri in Haridwar.

Ramdev drove straight to Haridwar after meeting his close aide Balkrishna in Dehradun's Suddhowala jail and took a dip in the Ganges along with his supporters amid slogan shouting against the UPA government.

Earlier, he visited Shatikunj Ashram where he was honoured by BJP leader and MLA Swami Yatishwaranand, who garlanded the Yoga guru.

Talking to reporters here, Ramdev said he would neither float any political party nor would he join politics.

"My main purpose is to bring black money back home," he said.
