The experiment by Baba Ramdev and Team Anna to join hands against corruption failed to elicit huge response with very few people turning up at the fast venue at Parliament Street in New Delhi on Sunday. Ramdev's prediction that thousands of supporters will gather in other cities hasn't also quiet materialised. Some support was, however, witnessed in cities like Lucknow, Patna and Bangalore.
There also seems to be a clear evident crack within Team Anna over joining hands with Ramdev. Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal stormed out of the venue after Ramdev objected to Kejriwal naming MPs in his speech, which the yoga guru said was against the fast protocol.
Ramdev said the fight against graft was not against individuals. "Arvind Kejriwal should not have taken names. It could create controversy. Please don't see it as a personal attack. This fight is not against any individual," Ramdev said. Kejriwal in his speech had said that Parliament would never pass the Lokpal bill as long as MPs like Lalu Prasad, A Raja and Suresh Kalmadi were present. Watch more on this story.
