Baba Ramdev is turning black money into white
Guna (MP): Continuing his tirade against Yoga guru Baba Ramdev, Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh on Sunday asked Baba to name the person who had secretly donated him a helicopter.
Mr. Singh also accused Baba Ramdev of turning the black money received as donations, into white.
“Baba, who is demanding that the names of the people with black money should be made public, should name the person who had secretly donated a helicopter to him,” Singh told reporters at his hometown in Raghogarh last evening.
“Baba is bringing the secret donations (black money) under the tax free category, making it white, and accumulating huge capital,” Mr. Singh alleged.
“Baba was in the business of turning black money into white. It was against the Centre’s Prevention of Money Laundering Act,” he said demanding an inquiry into it.
Taking a potshot at Baba Ramdev, he wondered from where the figure of Rs 400 lakh crore black money stashed abroad has cropped up.
“Slowly and gradually, things are becoming clear, which is why, the RSS and BJP have started distancing themselves from Baba,” he said.
“Baba himself stated that the government had agreed to 99 per cent of his demands, which is why he is continuing his fast,” he said.
Mr. Singh said that Baba Ramdev’s fast wasn’t a satyagraha, but a ‘Nautanki’ in Ramlila ground in Delhi.
