Kapurthala: Yoga Guru Ramdev on Sunday said it was unfortunate that despite being a Sikh, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had not been able to provide justice to the victims of 1984 riots and asked the people to teach a lesson to the Congress in next year's Punjab assembly polls.

"It was very unfortunate that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh being a Sikh has failed to provide justice to the victims of 1984 riots," Ramdev said addressing a rally here.

Baba Ramdev said he would write to the prime minister in the next few months after seeking public opinion and consent of all the MP's to bring back black money deposited in foreign banks.

He appealed to people to teach Congress a "lesson" in the forthcoming Assembly elections for its alleged failure to check the menace of corruption, unemployment and inflation.

"The Congress is a sinking ship and many Congress men want to leave the it," Ramdev said.

The spiritual leader said he would write to the prime minister in the next few months after seeking public opinion and consent of all the MP's to bring back black money deposited in foreign banks.

Ramdev suggested declaration of every property as national asset after fixing an upper limit of wealth and personal property up to Rs 20 crore to check the exodus of the country's money to foreign banks.

The Yoga guru said he would not form his political party and would oppose the Congress in the forthcoming Assembly elections in case it failed to bring back black money stashed away in foreign tax havens.
