Claiming that Congress's "anti-people policies" had "destroyed the country", yoga guru Ramdev today came out in firm support of Narendra Modi's bid to become the prime minister even as he outlined a list of proposals for the Gujarat Chief Minister to consider if he won power at the Centre.

If Modi becomes prime minister, he should abolish all kinds of taxes and bring in a single tax in the form of 'Banking Transaction Tax', Ramdev said.

"On behalf of the 1.25 billion Indians, we want you (Modi) to announce 'economic freedom' in the country. We expect that once you come to power, you will abolish all taxes and implement 1 to 2 per cent Banking Transaction Tax," Ramdev said.

He was talking about a programme he has organised at Talkatora Ground tomorrow which is to be addressed by Modi along with BJP President Rajnath Singh and senior party leader Arun Jaitley.

Ramdev further said that once he succeeds in coming to power, Modi should also announce that he would constitute a National Farmer Income Commission for the 60 crore farmers in the country based on Income Policy instead of Price Policy.

He added that he expects Modi to declare the black money being held by Indians in foreign banks to be national wealth and bring it back.
