Ungratefulness towards martyrs, patriots, freedom fighters is their insult – Swami Ramdev

On the 67th Independence Day of our country, the national flag was hoisted at the office of all the cells of Patanjali Yogpeeth. On the occasion, Yogrishi Swami Ramdevji Maharaj said that the Prime Minister in his address neither expressed gratitude towards over 7 lakh martyrs, who laid their lives for the sake of the nation nor paid tributes to them. We consider such souls as `messiah` of independence but their memorials were not erected.It is very unfortunate and grievous.

Swamiji further said that our money has been looted and stuffed in foreign banks. The Union Government does not even talk about black money. And now, Manmohan Singh’s address to the nation as the Prime Minister’s was the last as now the people would not allow him to speak as the head of the Government. Swamiji said that on our beloved motherland, flag of Pakistan was hoisted brazenly. The jawans posted on the border are insulted regularly. Now we would have to take an oath to impart justice to the nation. The rupee is fast depreciating and the financial condition is pathetic. The borders of the country are porous.

Same day, in 1947 was not rendered independent but it was just the transfer of power. The former rulers, British had directed to follow the same set of rules, they had drafted. Hence, it is not an Independence Day but a compromising day. He said that Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose had hoisted flag, which was Independence Day in true senses. While showing thecopy of transfer of power of attorney, Swamiji informed that one of the point in the agreement was regarding Subhash Chandra Bose, in which the new Government was asked to hand over him, alive of dead. British tried to disintegrate the country in 565 principalities but due to Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel, it became integrated India. Swamiji said that he would rebuild India as a glorious nation.

Acharya Balkrishna Maharaj told that Swami Ramdevji Maharaj has launched an aggressive campaign to bring betterment in the nation and everybody should come forward in his support. He said that we should never forget martyrs, which are respectful and inspirational for all of us.

Swamiji, while talking to the media said that after independence, the Congress has broken hearts of millions of fellow Indians. Regarding the scams committed by Robert Vadera, he said that he is a fraud son-in-law of the country. `Bhondu` and `Pappu`, both have joined hands to plunder the country. The Congress is fully indulged in corruption. Swamiji said that from September, he would launch his agitation for the change in the system in the country, which would continue till the conclusion of the election process.
