Yoga guru Ramdev on Friday urged Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to "show courage" and take action against Law Minister Somnath Bharti, who is under fire for his alleged role in the midnight raid episode in south Delhi in which a mob harassed and misbehaved with some African women.
"Kejriwalji should show some courage... He should take action against his law minister as not doing so will spoil his authenticity," Ramdev said.
"Whenever charges of corruption are raised against people belonging to other parties, Kejriwalji demands an immediate inquiry. But when it comes to his own people and ministers, he himself conducts an inquiry and gives them a clean chit," he added.
Bharti should resign from his post until the inquiry in the matter was over.
Attacking Kejriwal, Ramdev claimed that in January, 2010, when he had joined the campaign against corruption, he had in hand more than 300 papers which were said to be evidence against Sheila Dikshit, his predecessor in the Delhi Chief Minister's post.
"But now he says he has lost all those proofs. I think this will hamper Aam Aadmi Party's image." Ramdev said.
He said that AAP is facing ridicule over its recent activities and its graph had gone down.
"AAP was heading towards bringing in a major change in the political system, but... their graph has gone down.
"They had worked really hard building this image, which now seems to have been destroyed by their own activities" Ramdev said, averring that it was a "major mistake on Kejriwal's part".
Among the other prescriptions which he had to offer the Delhi CM, Ramdev included a recommendation for Kejriwal to practise 'pranayam' in order to cure his cough and health.
