The Lokpal Bill, which has got anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare's support, should be passed in Parliament and it can be amended later if required, yoga guru Ramdev has said.

"Lokpal, which has Anna's support, should definitely be passed in Parliament. It can be amended later, if needed," Ramdev told reporters here.

"Several amendments have been made to the Constitution. If required, the Lokpal Bill can also be amended," he said.

Taking a dig at Aam Aadmi Party convenor Arvind Kejriwal, he said, "If he tries very hard, his party might be able to muster two-three seats in Lok Sabha polls." He said AAP should not shy away from the responsibility to form government in Delhi, as "Congress has agreed to all its demands."

Ramdev also criticised Congress for opposing the Supreme Court decision criminalising homosexuality.

Expressing strong support for BJP leader Narendra Modi, Ramdev said if the Gujarat CM becomes the Prime Minister, all the black money will be brought back to the country.
