Baba Ramdev: Generalissimo
of The War Against Corruption
|by V. Sundaram|
All the pathetic and desperate attempts made by the Prime Minister and senior Cabinet Ministers of the supremely corrupt UPA II Government of India to confuse, coax, cajole and coerce Yogrishi Baba Ramdev to call off his fast-unto-death at Ramlila Maidan on 4th June 2011 have failed.
A 2.5 lakh square feet waterproof tent has been erected on Ramlila Maidan and massive cut-outs of Baba Ramdev have been put up around it. About 250 labourers were giving final touches at the protest site. This tent can accommodate more than 30,000 people. The Pioneer, New Delhi, has reported that Ramlila Maidan has located in the heart of the national Capital is virtually turning into ‘Ramdev Nagri’ ahead of Baba Ramdev’s proposed satyagraha from June 4.
Sonia's Congress UPA II coalition is the only Government of post-Independent India which has been subjected to the infamy and indignity of being monitored by the Supreme Court of India in respect of the criminal case filed by the CBI against the former Union Telecom Minister A. Raja.
The Chairman of the Coordination Committee of these large scale looting operations is the Italian Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi. This disgraceful Bandito (means bandit in Italian) Government nay, Kleptocracy, got frightened out of its wits when the Hindu Dharmacharya Baba Ramdev announced his decision to go on a fast-unto-death against Bhrashtachaar (Corruption) and Kaala-Dhan (Black Money). Baba Ramdev declared that he had interacted with and influenced 100 Million people and convinced them to take up the fight against whole scale government corruption and public looting held abroad illegally.
According to Shri Deivamuthu Editor of Hindu Voice:
Unlike Anna Hazare, who went on a fast to push the specific demand of a joint drafting committee for the Lok Pal Bill, Baba Ramdev’s demands are wide-ranging and ambitious. The yoga guru wants black money stashed abroad to be brought back and declared a national asset. He wants the death penalty for corruption. He wants the demonitization of currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 denomination. He is in favour of a substantial increase in the minimum support price for grains. He wants wages of different categories of labourers to be uniform across the country, besides a pro-farmer Land Acquisition Bill. He is strongly in favour of the introduction of Hindi medium in medical and technical colleges, etc. Finally he wants the introduction of a Law which will ensure a Minimum Public Service Guarantee at all levels for all the citizens of India.
Anna Hazare has stated today that he would like to associate himself with Baba Ramdev's hunger strike on June 4, 2011. The Civil Society has expressed its total backing for Baba Ramdev’s fast againsy corruption and black-money. Anna Hazare said he would join Ramdev at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi, where he is to sit on a fast-unto-death protest, on Sunday, the 5th of June 2011, emphasising that there was no divide in the civil society on the issue of corruption. To the total discomfiture of the UPA II Government of India, Anna Hazare has said: “I will support Ramdev so that the government does not do what it did to me when we were fighting. I and Baba Ramdev will fight together against corruption.”
Based on his own bitter personal experience of dealing with the thuggee double-dealing and back-stabbing Sonia Congress UPA II government, Anna Hazare has also warned Baba Ramdev that he should not be swayed by the feigned overtures made by the government saying it often plays "fraud" by first agreeing to demands and then backing out without any scruple of conscience.
I fully endorse the views of bold and fearless web-journalist Vijayan, Chennai, which he has communicated to me through e-mail:
“What Baba Ramdev and the new ICS, Indian Civil Society should now demand is –
The Political Parties like the BJP, the Janata Party and the SP have expressed their total support for the fast-unto-death campaign of Baba Ramdev against overweening corruption and overarching black money tucked away in safe coffers in India and abroad. The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), hailed by the BBC as the biggest cultural Non Governmental Organization in the world, has also expressed its total solidarity with the larger national objectives and goals of baba Ramdev’s people’s movement against Corruption and Black Money. This endorsement by the RSS has sent shivers of trepidation and fear through the tottering and crumbling edifice of the most corrupt and most venal Sonia-controlled UPA II Government in New Delhi.
Perhaps Dr Annie Besant was thinking of people like Baba Ramdev when she said: “He is a man in whom divinity is unfolded, who has gradually and slowly opened out, and made manifest the god within. He has trodden the ordinary path of man, and then climbed the steeper path, which rises to what, in modern days, has been called the superman, the superhuman state, where human perfection is accomplished.”
