Yoga guru Baba Ramdev Tuesday praised BJP leader and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, saying that he would be the perfect prime ministerial candidate in the 2014 general elections.

"It seems that there is no prime minister in our country. In my opinion, there is only one man who can capitalise this anger among the citizens and turn them into meaningful votes. That man is Narendra Modi," Ramdev said.

He was speaking on the second anniversary of the Ramlila Maidan brutality here.

On June 4, 2011, Delhi Police had swooped down on a hundreds of people who were staging a demonstration against black money and corruption at the Ramlila ground.

"The anger within people will come out during the elections in 2014. Narendra Modi is the perfect choice for the prime ministerial position and the Congress in under the scanner for many reasons," Ramdev said.

He also emphasised the need for political parties to come under the Right to Information Act.
