We do not appeal for votes in yoga camps claims Baba Ramdev

Refuting Congress's allegations that he was campaigning for BJP in his Yoga camps, Baba Ramdev today said his camps were "apolitical". "My yoga camps are apolitical... We do not appeal for votes in these camps... Putting views in media is my constitutional rights," Ramdev said told reporters here.

Congress's state unit Vice President Satyadeo Tripathi had earlier alleged that Ramdev was campaigning for BJP through his camps and said his party had registered complaint with the Election Commission in this regard. Ramdev said he would go to Amethi on April 30, and added this time Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi would not be able to win elections. "Rahul will not win elections. It's 100 per cent certain... This time BJP's Smriti Irani will win from Amethi.

Kumar Vishwas (of AAP) has sowed the seeds against Rahul there (in Amethi) and Irani will get its benefit," he added. On Priyanka Gandhi, Ramdev said that when it came to her husband's matter she said her family was being humiliated but what was happening when "I was targeted and 1,000 cases were lodged against me".

Ramdev claimed that after May 16 when the election results are out, top leaders of Congress will have to go to jails.
