Baba Ramdev and Sanjay Nirupam on Friday sparred at a function here with the Congress leader accusing him of evading tax and making yoga a business, a charge denied by the yoga guru as the “biggest lie”.
Speaking at Aaj Tak conclave ‘Agenda’, both Ramdev and the Congress leader Nirupam traded charges and tried to puncture opponents arguments on blackmoney.
It was Nirupam who went on the offensive first questioning Ramdev’s businesses alleging that he was “doing business in the name of yoga” and it was “unfortunate” that he is spreading falsehood about black money. Nirupam alleged, “you did not pay (a huge amount of tax). There is a notice against you. You sell medicines. You have made yoga a business.”
Ramdev retorted, “This is a blatant lie.
“Prove that I have stolen even one rupee. You cannot prove that. What Nirupam said is a lie. Put all the investigating agencies after me.”
