New Delhi: After not being allowed by the Uttar Pradesh Government to continue protest against black money following his eviction Delhi’s Ramlila Ground, Yoga guru Baba Ramdev today resumed his fast at his own place Patanjali Yog Peeth at Haridwar in Uttrakhand. He accused the Delhi Police of lying on the action taken at the Ramlila Maidan late on the night of June 4.
“The Delhi Police is lying now,” Ramdev said while rubbishing the claims of the Delhi police. He alleged that the stage at Delhi was set on fire thrice and his supporters got hurt while trying to put the fire off. He also claimed that the police lathicharged people who were trying to put out the fire.
Delhi Police, however, on Sunday denied lathicharge and said that Ramdev got hurt because he tried to run away. Special Commissioner (Law and Order) Dharmendra Kumar denied that police had used batons on protestors but admitted that teargas shells were lobbed to disperse them after being attacked with bricks, flower pots and sticks.
He also said that there is a mistrust among the nation and questioned, “If gatherings against corruption are unlawful then Gandhiji’s Satyagraha was also wrong.”
He claimed to have been receiving support from all across the nation and said that people have kept markets closed in support of his cause.
