Ramdev using agitation as license to attack authorities: Moily

New Delhi: Slamming Ramdev for using his agitation as a "license" to take on those in authority, government today said he should respect Parliament, Constitution and those occupying key posts.

"Ramdev has lost his identity as a fighter. He has now succumbed to the pressure of BJP and also the NDA partners. There is no doubt about it. To that extent he has completely lost his credibility," Union Minister M Veerappa Moily told reporters outside Parliament House.

The corporate affairs minister lamented the manner in which Ramdev lashed out at the government.

"This is not worth talking about. The manner in which he used very loose language demonstrates the fact that he has taken this thing as a license to speak against, abuse people in authority. He does not understand that there are certain Constitutional posts which he has to acknowledge," Moily said.

Ramdev gave the call, "Congress hatao, desh bachao (remove Congress, save the country". Claiming the support of around 400 MPs, he said the government would lose its majority if SP and BSP withdraw support.

Moily alleged that Ramdev does not understand that there is a Parliament established by the Constitution which in turn was created by the sacrifice of many freedom fighters.

"That language he does not understand. I think he has to limit himself as a decent person. That is what is required," Moily said.
