Ramdev is a front for RSS activities: Lalu
New Delhi: RJD on Sunday accused Baba Ramdev of being a front for RSS` activities and took exception to the reception given to the yoga guru by the government upon his arrival in the national capital last week.
"This is not how a sadhu should speak. The most dangerous thing is that the RSS is using the Baba as a front for its activities. They are trying to push him forward," the party chief Lalu Prasad Yadav told reporters here.
"Sadhvi Ritambhara was the first one to share the stage (with Ramdev). She was the one who was responsible for the Babri Masjid demolition," he said.
The RJD chief said he had "no issue" with Ramdev entering politics and that "more than his saffron robes, white suits him better."
The former Railway Minister said he was "sad" that Ramdev was given a better reception than even US President Barack Obama.
He said, "The government realised that RSS is backing the Baba and that is why Pranab Mukherjee was sent."
Questioning Ramdev`s `satyagraha`, he said, "If the deal was already finalised at the hotel, then what was the need for the fast. Will the Parliament work on the dictation of these people?"
