Mumbai: Toeing the lines of Gandhian and veteran social activist Anna Hazare, Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev has also decided to observe fast unto death to pile up pressure on the ruling dispensation to deal graft with iron hand and bring back black money stashed away in foreign accounts. Anna Hazare ended his five-day hunger strike after the government gave in to his demands of Lokpal Bill last month.

Speaking against the government and its inaction in getting the money from Swiss Banks back, Ramdev said that if the government does not take serious note of it, he would go on an indefinite hunger strike from June 4 at Ramlila Maidan, Delhi.

The Yoga Guru, who is credited with popularising and reviving Yoga in the world, announced on Thursday that his ‘Satyagraha’ against black money and rampant corruption will pressurize the government to take effective measures.

Ramdev blamed the Centre for not taking concrete steps and slammed the government for its inaction in dealing with black money. He also asked the government to disclose the names of those who have Swiss Bank accounts and demanded a ban on high-denomination currency notes like Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 as they promote corruption.

The Baba pledged that his movement will continue until corruption is eradicated.
