VISHWA Hindu Parishad (VHP) has extended support to the proposed satyagraha of Baba Ramdev against corruption. “We feel it will help cleanse the entire system in the country. If the Baba’s gesture turns into a mass movement, the VHP will take active part in it. We hope the proposed satyagraha takes the shape of a revolution throughout the country,” said the VHP president Shri Ashok Singhal in Silchar on May 9.
Talking to mediapersons Shri Singhal said the entire country is ready to revolt against the prevailing corruption at all levels. The citizens have only been waiting for a dedicated leader to take on the cause. Shri Anna Hazare’s fast-unto-death on the corruption issue clearly showed that the people are seething with rage against the rotten system, he said. Shri Singhal added that it is time to bring back black money to the tune of hundreds of crores deposited in foreign banks by tax evaders. “If the said money is recovered and brought back to the country, the economy will be able to overtake even that of China. However, it is sad that our government is not interested in resolving the matter,” he alleged.
