Dehradun: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) BJP on Wednesday refuted media reports about Baba Ramdev pitching for his own favourites to be fielded by the saffron party in the Lok Sabha polls, saying the yoga guru had nothing to do with party's ticket distribution process.



"Baba Ramdev is a nationalist whose heart beats for the country. He has nothing to do with the ticket distribution process in the BJP," BJP’s in-charge for Uttarakhand, Radhamohan Singh, told reporters.
Terming such reports carried in a section of the media as absolutely unfounded, Singh who is also a party MP said the yoga guru never pitched for a BJP ticket to anyone.
Of late there were reports in a section of the media that Ramdev wanted some of his chosen favourites to be fielded by the party in the Lok Sabha polls.
To a question about senior party leader Bacchi Singh Rawat resigning from all party posts in protest against his name being dropped from a shortlist of probables for Nainital seat, Singh said he will soon be entrusted with the task of poll management in all five Lok Sabha seats in the hill state.
Singh said he had held a meeting with BJP nominees from the five Lok Sabha seats and was confident of a clean sweep by the party.
"People are tired with the Congress and Modi wave is sweeping Uttarakhand as the rest of the country. We will wrest all the seats from the Congress this time," he said.
When asked whether changing the Chief Minister in Uttarakhand could brighten the Congress' polls prospects, Singh said mere promises and announcements will not do.
"People are looking for concrete work on the ground. Ever since Harish Rawat took over as the new CM he has done nothing except making one announcement after another," Singh, who represents the East Champaran seat in Lok Sabha, said.

    Ramdev baba firstly have no rights to ask anything to be done in LS polls because of his fluctuations and secondly BJP works for his own benefits and to avoid any unwanted changes BJP neglects the one who want to have change in there party polls.

    BABA always stood in each and every situation happened to BJP party but what BJP did to him is wrong, saying ''He has nothing to do with the ticket distribution process in the BJP '' is wrong and they should think about it.

    BJP is been ruled by RSS and the same thing happened with baba but BJ{P rejected it because they do not find any profit from him now. by this BABA have degraded his image infront of the public, he should take decision which could help him to grow. BJP is communal party and they never think about any other or nations profit what they have in there mind is to build the profit for themselves.

    it is looking like baba is been used as a tool for the promotion of BJP and when it is done no one bothers about Ramdev baba. this is an old strategy of BJP by using people they promote them self in-front of the public and as soon as it looks like the work is over BJP refuse the same person.

    if they say that baba ramdev is a nationalist then why don he have this right to say for the ticket distribution precess when he has a thought of the progress of the nation then why is BJP getting against it. whether BJP is not a nationalist that is why they are saying like that or the thing could be the fear which they must be feeling if Ramdev baba stayed in the elections.

    Modi has an agenda....come to power at any cost. ramdev has an agenda making business. if a man wants to serve the nation why he must advertise self with tata and ambanis money???

  • ayesha20 Mar 2014, 00:00 AM

    Everybody is concerned about its own agenda and interest. Where is the Nation?Baba should keep himself away from politics that would be better for him...

  • prakash20 Mar 2014, 00:00 AM

    firstly wrong interpreted by the leader of BJP Ramdev baba is never a nationalist he thinks about his own profit and what BJP did is i think is correct thing because when ramdev can switch the support of parties then what BJP party did to him is a genuine thing which should have happened to him earlier.

  • ishaan20 Mar 2014, 00:00 AM

    BJP acts very smart when it comes on getting people's trust they used Baba ramdev as their card of ace and now whwn it comes to to do some thing for baba they back off..Ramdev has his agenda. He wants his companions to be fielded. dirty politics played by BJP...

  • jeet20 Mar 2014, 00:00 AM

    if Ramdev ji never pitched about BJP ticket to anyone it doesn't mean he got no rights to add up any role in it. he always stood for BJP and also pitched about Modi and bjp in front of the public. I think this is not a correct thing to do as BJP is always been a personal profit looking party if it find anything where there profit is been distributed they break up the align.

  • naina20 Mar 2014, 00:00 AM

    earlier Modi use to touch feet of Ramdev ji but now what happened to him why is he neglecting him. doesn't it show that BJP always do thing just to show people that they have respect for each and every one and when it comes about personal then they neglect all these thing which they use to show. by all this it proves that BJP is Fake party.

  • shikhar20 Mar 2014, 00:00 AM

    baba is never a Nationalist he is known as opportunist because when ever he see profit in any party he teleport his interest in that party.By which he can never be a nationalist and support to such leader will be a big mistake as the BJP party whole is a big mistake happened to the Nation.

  • shiva20 Mar 2014, 00:00 AM

    i think BJP party is totally working for the personal benefit and such benefits are now getting visible because of such activities. BJP to advani is same and now its bjp to ramdev baba. BJP is not letting anyone to choose or to add manifesto into the BJP thoughts so to initiate the personal benefits BJP is not supporting any of its member to choose what they want.
