MPs slam Baba Ramdev for calling them murderers, devils
After Team Anna, it’s now yoga guru Baba Ramdev’s turn to slam MPs.
Speaking here after the launch of his ‘Bharat Nirmaan Yatra’, Ramdev called MPs sitting in Parliament murderers, looters, illiterate and devils.
However, he did add that several good people were also sitting in Parliament for whom he has respect.
Following his outburst, MPs cutting across party lines slammed the yoga guru, including Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar and BJP’s Kirti Azad. The Samajwadi Party has also moved a privilege motion against him in Parliament.
Kirti Azad said Ramdev should refrain from making such statements.
Congress’ Jagdambika Pal said Ramdev’s remarks were against Parliamentary ethics. He accused Ramdev of character assassination of MPs.
SP leader Mohan Singh advised Ramdev to stay what he was - a saint.
RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav too slammed Ramdev, calling him mentally sick and frustrated.
Meanwhile, Anna Hazare has supported Ramdev saying what he said was right.
Earlier, Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal had also lashed out at MPs, making similar allegations against them.
