Haridwar: After breaking his six-day fast against corruption, Yoga guru Ramdev on Tuesday took a holy dip in River Ganga at Har-Ki-Pauri in Haridwar.

Ramdev drove straight to Haridwar after meeting his close aide Balkrishna in Dehradun's Suddhowala jail and took a dip in the Ganges along with his supporters amid slogan shouting against the UPA government.

Earlier, he visited Shatikunj Ashram where he was honoured by BJP leader and MLA Swami Yatishwaranand, who garlanded the Yoga guru.

Talking to reporters here, Ramdev said he would neither float any political party nor would he join politics.

"My main purpose is to bring black money back home," he said.

Conspiracy to kill Balkrishna, alleges Ramdev

Ramdev further alleged that a conspiracy was being hatched to kill his close aide Balkrishna, who is currently lodged in a jail here, and put the blame on him.

Soon after his arrival here from New Delhi after ending his fast, Ramdev drove straight to Suddhowala jail to meet Balkrishna, whose judicial remand was yesterday extended by a CBI court for another 14 days in a case of forgery and violation of the Indian Passport Act.

"First put Acharya (Balkrishna) in jail. Then kill him and put the blame on the baba (me). This is their conspiracy," Ramdev told reporters here after meeting Balkrishna.

Ramdev also said that his campaign for bringing blackmoney back home will continue and he would mobilise more support in this regard.

"The UPA does not want to bring back the black money as they have no time and are busy looting the nation," Ramdev said.

A day after he was arrested while trying to march to Parliament and later released, Ramdev, who spent the night with hundreds of supporters at the Ambedkar Stadium in the Capital, on Tuesday broke his six-day fast and a distinctly anti-Congress protest on the blackmoney issue.
