Door-to-door campaign to be launched to vote out Cong: Ramdev

Pune, PTI | Updated : 09 July 2013, 09:13 PM

Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Tuesday said his activists would carry out a door-to-door campaign to urge people to vote against Congress which he alleged was "looting" the country.

Declaring support to Gujarat Chief Minister and BJP leader Narendra Modi, Ramdev said, "Congress and Gandhi family are looting the country. Congress is trying to defame Modi as a communal, because he is poised to take on Rahul Gandhi in the next elections."

"Our Yuva Bharat activists would undertake a door-to-door drive to persuade people to vote against
Congress," he told reporters here.

Ramdev said he was supporting Modi as there were a number of issues facing the nation.

However, he remained non-committal when asked whether he would support BJP as a party. "We can think of supporting BJP if it includes our demands in its manifesto," he added.

Ramdev expressed hope that JD (U) leader Nitish Kumar would reconsider his decision of breaking away from NDA and return to its fold after the elections.

To a query, he said he had not parted ways with social activist Anna Hazare and would be "in touch" with him.
