Haridwar: The questions regarding citizenship of Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev’s close aide Balkrishna has become a bone of contention for the administration. The Municipal Corporation which is bracing itself for election is now in tizzy over putting his name in voters’ list.

There are strict provisions of not including the name of Nepali and Bangladeshi citizens in voters list. This has led to confusion as the issue related to the citizenship of Balkrishna is currently being investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

The administration has decided to put the matter on hold and is taking legal advice on it.

Meanwhile, Balkrishna has termed it as a new tactic of the government to create trouble for him. He alleged that the Central government is conspiring against him and trying to deny the basic rights provided by the constitution.
