Pithoragarh: Congress workers in Pithoragarh district protested against Baba Ramdev’s Bharat Swabhiman Yatra. In Berinag, the Congress workers showed black flags to Baba Ramdev.

The party workers urged to disclose the name of the state’s leader who reportedly demanded Rs 2-crore bribe from Ramdev. They also raised slogans against Baba at Siltham chowk. In order to stop the party workers, heavy police force was deployed in Siltham.

In Pithoragarh, Ramdev alighted from his vehicle and spoke to them who showed him black flag. People are fed-up of corruption and his movement is to eradicate corruption, Baba said.

The protest was led by AICC member Ravindra Singh Bisht, district President Mahendra Singh Lunthi and state’s spokesperson Mathura Dutt Joshi.

On the other hand, Ramdev while addressing a large group of people in Berinag said that the Congress-led Central government is not doing anything to bring back the black money parked in foreign banks.
