Yoga guru Swami Ramdev has demanded that the black money hidden in foreign banks be declared as national assets. In this connection, he has written a letter to the Prime Minister. Baba told that of the total 40 lakh crore black money,over 25 percent is hidden in the nation and invested in gold and property. The union Government has, hitherto, not taken even a single decision, which indicates the seriousness of the Government to bring black money back to the nation. He reiterated that over 70 percent of the black money is stashed in Switzerland and if this money alone is brought back to the country, it would make miraculous changes.
While addressing a press conference in Patanjali Yogpeeth, Baba said that he would make people healthy with the yoga and also continue work to nation building, via Swabhiman trust. He said that it is the moral responsibility of the union Government to pass Jan Lokpal bill in the winter session of the Parliament. In a letter written to the Prime Minister, he demanded that the millions of illegal money stashed in foreign banks be declared black money and make efforts to bring it back to the nation. He alleged that most of the black money has been deposited by the politicians.
The industrialists being patronized by the politicians too have earned black money. The black money has damaged the backbone of the nation. If we want to re-build the nation, the Prime Minister should shed tenacity and take concrete steps to bring black money back to the nation. Baba Ramdev said that he is not distantly associated with the politics but has vowed to clean politics. He reiterated the need of Lokpal for the purpose.
Denying any political ambitions and electoral aspirations, renowned Yoga guru Baba Ramdev said that at an appropriate time, he would bring forward the Prime Ministerial candidate, and the People are sure to like him. While interacting with media in Jalandhar, where he reached under the aegis of Swabhiman yatra, Baba Ramdev said that around 400 lakh crore black money of India has been deposited in foreign banks and if the Government succeeds in bringing back black money, India would become the super economic power in the world with America and China bowing their heads before us. While emphasizing on Swadeshi, Baba Ramdev said that China is the biggest economic power in the world. Apparently, it is America, but it has debts of over 1,000 lakh crore dollars. And now China too has shed its language, culture and civilization adopting foreign culture. He reiterated maintaining distance with politics and any political post but said that at an appropriate time, he would project the real claimant for Prime Minister ship, who would be liked by the people. When asked who is that person, Baba Ramdev said I would not say anything right now but at an appropriate time, people would know about it. He said that a strong wave of change is sweeping the nation and if situation remained unchanged, fall of this Government is imminent in 2013 .
