Ramdev on Tuesday announced that he would launch a political party within three years, which will contest all the seats in the next general elections.

The yoga guru, who launched a non-political movement Bharat Swabhiman earlier, said he was not after any political posts and will not contest the elections.

“Through Bharat Swabhiman, we are trying to increase our membership. These members, on a district basis, will elect a candidate for the elections. We will announce the name of the party and the candidates before the elections. But I will not stand for elections personally,” he said.
