Yoga guru Ramdev has warned of a “big revolution” if the Prime Minister does not meet his demands for announcing immediate steps to bring back black money, the enactment of a strong Lokpal and measures to end corruption.
As his fast entered the fourth day with the government continuing to ignore the protest, Ramdev wrote a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, asking that his demands be accepted and suitable measures taken to implement them.
Addressing his supporters at Ramlila Maidan, he said the fast, which was to end last evening, was continuing and a decision on the next course of action would be taken this evening.“Till a decision on our demands are not taken, I am ready to continue my fast. The fast will not end today. When it will end, I will tell you tomorrow,” he said.
“We wrote to you (Singh) earlier regarding the issue. We have now sent you a fresh letter. We will wait till this evening. If there is no decisive action, there will be a big revolution from tomorrow,” he said.
Though he was to announce his plans last evening, Ramdev has been extending his deadline and deferring announcement of his next course of action. He had said last evening that he will announce his strategy this morning but he deferred it for the evening with a letter to the Prime Minister.
Ramdev also extended an invitation to all parties to join his protest if they agreed with his demands.
