Mumbai: Ramdev Has Every Right to Dabble in Politics: Sena

Mumbai, Jun 6 (PTI) Shiv Sena today said it disapproved of fast as a political weapon, but argued that yoga guru Baba Ramdev was a citizen of India, and had every right to create a political space for himself.

Sena's comments -- in response to yesterday's police action against Ramdev and his followers in Delhi, and Congress leaders' remarks that Ramdev should stick to yoga -- appear in the editorial of its mouthpiece 'Saamna'.

"If a foreigner Sonia Gandhi can become the political Godmother ("guru-mata") of Congress leaders, why cannot Ramdev, a citizen of this country, practise politics?" the editorial asked.

But the paper also said that corruption could not be ended by "blowing conch" and fasting.

"The solution is to pull down the corrupt government and put a clean, transparent, people's government in place," the paper said.
