Govt is likely to use tactics to quiten him rather than listening to him and taking him on board to solve the issue the Govt has not been able to solve for years. Govt raises voice to solve the black money issue...their voice is to win votes and then they seem to be forgetting about the matter until next elections. This has lasted for long resulting in India remaining behind in many fields. Baba Ramdev is doing this even though he is not in parliament... proving that his action is a reminder to the ministers to act upon the same issue which they have touched many times to win votes. Baba Ramdev is not asking to be a minister as he already has another occupation that is respected and followed world wide.

Politicians seem to be using their knowledge as a begging bowl to earn more money. It is similar to using your certificate as a begging bowl to collect money. Let the advancement of science and technology reach the needy as you fire rockets to reach the moon and mars to see if there is life there. What about the life you have around you?

After 65 years of independence. 2/3 rd of people are hungry. BBC radio four reported only 2 days ago that one child will die out of four in India under the age of five due to hunger and malnutrition. They interviewed people in villages no food, shelter or medical help, no transport. The Govt running India is the most corrupt and they been mostly in power since Independence. No body is fighting for their life. Ram Dev is true and whole heartedly fighting for their cause. But media report negative on some of the
TV channels. They miss guide the public by using wroncg arguments and playing games with people's lives. Horrible.

Over loaded vehicles fall off the cliff, collide and kill many people every other day. People on bus roofs etc. That seems proved today...

...Govt joined in today by driving the bus with protesters on roof tops! Same people placed under sky without food and water when they were said that they have been arrested and are under Govt control. Such atrocities are being pointed out by Anna and Baba Ramdev.

Why that bus moved with people on top? Was the bus insured to move that way?

Swami Ram Dev's most knowledgeable and educated campaigner was poisoned and one of the women attandee of 4th June protest last year was battered by Police's Lathie charge to death. Press is on the side of Govt and never mentions these unnecessary loss of life. Life has no value in India. Accidents don't happen but they are caused. Train,plain,bus,boat or car accidents cause death of thousands of Indians each month. No body cares. Thousands of people die in floods every year. Who cares. So what, is the attitude.
