New Delhi: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev was discharged this morning from Himalayan Hospital in Dehradun after a four-day stay in the hospital. He vowed to continue his fight against government corruption.
After being released Ramdev along with his aide Acharya Balkrishna addressed the media and insisted that his eight-day fast, which ended on June 12 “awakened the nation and today, the people of this country have woken up.”
The bearded, saffron-robed guru, who has a huge following in the country, was attempting to force the government to repatriate so-called “black money,” cash stored in foreign accounts suspected of being used for illegal transactions.
He thanked all supporters who turned up at the Ramlila Maidan on June 4 and reiterated that their efforts won’t go waste.
“I am thankful to all my supporters who were there in Delhi on June 4. Their efforts will not go waste,” said Baba Ramdev after being discharged from the hospital.
“We will keep working to repatriate black money, taking all the people of this country with us,” he told the media in the northern town of Dehradun, where he was admitted to hospital on June 10 after his condition worsened.
Ramdev ended his nine-day long fast on June 11 on the requests of Sri Sri Ravishankar and other spiritual leaders. He was fasting from June 4 demanding tougher anti-corruption laws and seeking return of black money stashed away abroad.
