Taking a jibe at Asaram Bapu booked on charges of raping a minor, Janata Dal (United) chief Sharad Yadav said that the spiritual leader should be jailed for the crimes that he has allegedly indulged in.
“This saint called Asaram is more of a 'tamasha ram'. He should be jailed,” Yadav said.
Yadav also added that the Rajasthan Government has enough evidence against Asaram Bapu to arrest him.
“ He must be arrested instantly,” Yadav said.
Accusing the self-styled godman of being involved in the land mafia, Yadav said that people like him should not be allowed to roam freely in the country.
Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot had earlier on Thursday said the rape charge against Asaram Bapu was being investigated by Jodhpur Police Commissioner, and added that appropriate action would be taken on the basis of 'truth and facts'.
Gehlot asked the saints preaching religion or spirituality to maintain their best character and work in their limit as any bad message hurts and shocks their followers.
Asaram Bapu, who has been booked on charges of forcing a 16-year-old girl into unnatural sex at a Jodhpur ashram a week ago, has so far denied the charges leveled against him.
