Yaga by Baba's supporters to protest against UPA govt

The protest was staged opposing the arrest of Baba Ramadev who was on an indefinite strike against corruption in New Delhi.

Addressing the protestors, Hindu Jana Jagruthi Samiti member Satyajith said “it is not the first time that a conspiracy was made against Baba Ramadev. When the medicines produced in Baba’s Ashram gained popularity, false allegations were made against him of using animal bones in the medicine. Now again, the Central government has backstabbed Baba by interrupting in his peaceful fight against corruption. All the acts aim at defaming Baba,” he said.

He asked why the Government did not use any investigative agency to arrest those who were posing life threat to Baba Ramdev. If at all the claims of the government on interrupting Baba’s protest with good intention was true, then the government would not have used police force to disperse the crowd, he alleged.

Earlier inaugurating the protest, Patanjali Yoga Samiti Vice-president Srinath Hegde said “the Congress which had once resorted to Satyagraha during freedom struggle, has now deviated from its principles by using lathi to disperse those involved in Satyagraha.”

Lokananada from Arya Samaj performed Yaga praying for the peace and stability of the nation.

In the meantime, Sri Rama Sene has supported Baba Ram Dev and has urged the government to pass Lokpal Bill and bring back black money from Swiss Bank.

Dakshina Kannada BJP unit too which started its 24-hour protest against the arrest of Baba Ramdev on Sunday continued till 7 pm on Monday.

Protests were staged by various organisations against Ramadev’s arrest in Udupi. The BJP district unit which had its 24 hours protest on Sunday evening continued with the protest till 7 pm on Monday. While, Bharath Swabhiman and Patanjali Yoga Samiti Udupi unit performed Yaga in support of Baba Ramadev. The Samiti members wore black ribbon and observed ‘Black Day’ in the city.
