Social activist Anna Hazara will be arriving in Delhi on Saturday, a day ahead of his day-long fast against corruption alongwith yoga guru Baba Ramdev at Jantar Mantar. Anna and Ramdev are expected to meet later in the day.
Ramdev had earlier claimed that their anti-corruption rally will begin in New Delhi and proceed to other parts of the country.
Both Anna and Ramdev on Friday had trained guns at Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. While Anna said that he has lost faith in the Prime Minister, Ramdev has alleged that Manmohan is not “politically honest” and is weakening the democratic traditions of the country.
Addressing a press conference to brief about the June 3 fast along with Anna Hazare at Jantar Mantar, the yoga guru said he still trusts Singh’s “personal honesty”.
Ramdev said there will be simultaneous protests in state capitals on Sunday and that police have allowed them to have a crowd of 5,000 but he will only bring 3-4,000 protesters along with him.
“After 56 days and 16 letters, we finally got the permission last evening. I have appealed to people not to indulge in violence. This is a non-violent protest to bring back black money. If police stops you, stop there. If they arrest you, court arrest,” he said.
He also claimed that if the blackmoney stashed abroad is brought back, each family will benefit by Rs 10 crore.
