LUCKNOW: Yoga guru Ramdev today expressed dissatisfaction over NDA government's initiatives to bring back blackmoney from foreign countries but hoped that the Narendra Modi government will soon act on the issue.

"I have spoken to Modi and Finance Minister Arun Jaitely. We have not forgotten the issue, but are giving time to Modi government. I hope he will bring back blackmoney," Ramdev told reporters here.

Commenting on the CBI raids at Principal Sectary's office in Delhi, Ramdev said, "It is for the first time that any CM (Arvind Kejriwal) is standing by an officer crossing his level of dignity."

On Kejriwal's attack on Jaitely, Ramdev said, "I have never heard any thing against his (Jaitley) integrity. Its unfortunate that such charges are levelled against him. I think charges against anyone should have some weight."

Speaking about the issue of intolerance, Ramdev said that it was a political matter as the fabric of the country was such that it takes along both Hindus and Muslims.

The Yoga guru, who was here to inaugurate a Patanjali mega store said that from next year "they will focus on exports worth thousands of crores."

He also expressed his desire to open a chain of schools, disseminating both vedic and modern education.

On allegations against Patanjali products, Ramdev said that there were elements promoting foreign products and those who oppose his ideology could go to any extent to damage "our reputation".
