Akola (Maha): A complaint has been lodged against yoga guru Ramdev alleging that booklets defaming party president Sonia Gandhi and general secretary Rahul Gandhi were circulated during his ongoing camp here, police said on Sunday.

The complaint was filed on Saturday at a police station by city Congress chief Madan Bhargad along with several others, who alleged that the 18-page booklet contained objectionable writings against Sonia and Rahul.

Meanwhile, Maharashtra in-charge of the Patanjali Yoga Peeth, founded by Ramdev, said that neither the yoga guru nor the trust had anything to do with the booklet.

It is an attempt to defame Ramdev, he alleged. Police are investigating the matter.

Ramdev's three-day yoga camp here began on Saturday.
