New Delhi: A major fall in India’s mainstream politics was witnessed on Wednesday when Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev’s statement targeting Congress chief Sonia Gandhi took an ugly turn.

On her visit to Haryana on Thursday to meet the rape victims and their kin, Sonia Gandhi had said that rape cases have gone up in all states and Haryana was no exception. Reacting to this, Yoga guru Baba Ramdev accused Sonia Gandhi of shielding Haryana government and questioned on Wednesday if her own daughter would have been raped, had she reacted in the same manner.

In Wednesday’s press briefing, Congress spokesperson Renuka Chaudhary seemingly lost her cool and reacted in the same vein asking if the rape victims were yoga guru’s own daughters that he was showing this much of sensitiveness.

Chaudhary had further said, “If he is yoga guru or something else? He should look at his face… ” Reacting to Swami Ramdev’s statement, Minister of State for Parliamentary affairs, Harish Rawat, had said that such comments are unfortunate. Seeing failure of his movement, he was displaying his frustration by making such comments, Rawat said.
