"Though the Bharatiya Janata Party has fielded candidates in all constituencies, why has it not fielded a strong candidate from Rae Bareli," Ramdev asked.

The yoga guru said he and his followers would campaign for Bharti if the BJP agreed to field her from Rae Bareli.

"I will go from house to house to campaign for Uma Bhartiji and tell people about her leadership qualities. I will also organise rallies to campaign for her," Ramdev said.

“I will make every effort to make Gandhi lose her electoral bastion,” he added.

Gandhi is an MP from Rae Bareli for the last two terms.

Ramdev said he has been approached by many people to contest from Rae Bareli but he has decided not to contest the general election.

"A lot of people have told me that if the BJP does not field any powerful candidate, why don't I contest the election against Sonia Gandhi. But I have taken a decision to not contest the polls," he said.

The BJP has fielded Bharti from Uttar Pradesh's Jhansi constituency.

Ramdev blamed Sonia Gandhi for the corruption in the country and said that her defeat was important for India's welfare.

"I am confident the BJP will win more than 300 seats and its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi will become the Prime Minister," he said.

When asked about the poll panel notice to him, Ramdev replied that he has not received any show cause notice.

Ramdev was issued a show cause notice on Tuesday for inviting Modi to the Yoga Mahotsav on March 23 despite the poll panel granting permission only for a yoga session.
