Is Ramdev credible and honest enough to lead anti corruption campaign?

Is Baba Ramdev credible enough to lead a campaign against corruption? CNN-IBN has accessed an excise intelligence report that exposes how he has failed to pay taxes amounting to Rs 4 crore. Nandita Rao, lawyer and critic of Baba Rambev, has alleged that hawala money of the Hindu right wing has been major part of Baba Ramdev's Divya Yog Mandir trust.

"This is all hawala money of the Hindu right wing which he (Ramdev) is laundering. Because no one can earn so much money teaching yoga. There is no doubt about lack of credibility and lack of honesty of Baba Ramdev," Rao told CNN-IBN on a late night television debate.

Also on the debate was social activist Medha Patkar, who said that it is for the law to decide whether Baba Ramdev is honest.

"As far the credibility and honesty is concern I think the law should take its own course. Let us wait and watch," Patkar said.

Patkar also said that the Income Tax report doesn't effect the work and issue Ramdev is raising.

"That doesn't effect every work of theirs. That doesn't effect every issue they are raising," she said.
