Swami Ramdev Ji is back in Delhi to unfurl his flag of mass movement to boost anti-corruption movement including bringing back black money stashed in foreign banks. His humane approach and leadership came to forefront when he went to GB Pant hospital to look up Ms Rajbala, an activist of his anti-corruption movement who was almost killed in the police lathi charge at the Ramlila Maidan on the night of 4th/5th June 2011. She is on life support system and may not survive if the system is taken off. In any case, she is paralysed waist downward and may not be able to walk again. Rajbala is just one proof of police brutality on unarmed and peaceful protesters who were fast asleep when the cruel police attacked them past midnight like barbaric huns.
ANGRY SANYASI SOUNDED CONVINCING
AT THE WELL ATTENDED PRESS CONFERENCE THE SWAMI LED HIS FIERCE ATTACK ON THE GOVERNMENT OF INDIA AND KEPT THE PRESSMEN BUSY WRITING WHATEVER HE SPOKE. IT WAS HIS MIEN, HIS VOICE, HIS LANGUAGE AND HIS PRESENTATION OF FACTS BACKED BY DATA AND STATISTICS THAT MADE THE HERMIT SOUND SO CONVINCING. THE GOVT OF INDIA WAS THROUGHOUT ON THE BACKFOOT.
In any case the still photographs and videos taken by pressmen present on the fateful night were seen the world over by the civil rights activists, and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his boss,Ms Sonia Gandhi had no place to hide from the global stare. Later on the Prime Minister just said that the incident was unfortunate but the govt had no alternative open to it. On an analysis of the photographs and statements of eye witnesses, it was crystal clear that the govt was telling lies to cover up misdeeds of its police and administrative officers. Their indiscretions and brutality were committed under instructions of political masters sitting in the North Block.
It is indeed heartening for the democratic organisations and NGOs that the Supreme Court of India has suo motu taken cognizance of the police brutality and barbaric behaviour.
SWAMI RAMDEV UP AND ABOUT
When Swami Ramdev Ji was bundled out of the Ramlila Maidan and his disciples were beaten up badly, women Satyagrahis were molested and attempts were made to rape them, so says the revered Sanyasi but the pseudo-secularists thought that for the Yoga Guru, the game was over. This visit to Delhi on 26th June 11 by Swami RamdevJi proves the point that he might have looked or sounded a little tired and drooping but was not out of the arena. He was alive and kicking and would be back to guide his disciples and resume his Satyagrah with gusto, the movement that had never been abandoned by him or his disciples. There was a wave of joy among the masses after hearing the hermit and finding him in high spirits.
Every citizen knows that the Anti-corruption Movement was just on a low key for a short period of time and would move to the Centre Stage when he reaches there. Indeed, the proposal to carry on with the anti-corruption movement came from no one else but the top echelon leaders of Bharat. It is further heartening to note that cash, in the form of donations is still flowing in and the PM or his minions have not been able to silence the voice of the people against corruption that is denuding Bharat of its wealth and enriching a few anti-national elements and traitors. Swami Ramdev Ji is sanguine that the movement launched by him and the like-minded persons, including women, will bear fruit, notwithstanding devilish designs of some Indians and foreigners who are soaked in Black Money that they have stashed in foreign banks. These men and women who masquerade as patriots are in fact traitors who are out to loot and plunder Bharat more than the Iranian invader, Nadir Shah.
The anti-corruption movement of Swami Ramdev Ji is getting its sustenance from the common man who cannot be counted and silenced by misusing govt agencies for income tax raids and mid-night knocks by the dirty tricks department. Had the movement been financed by a few money bags from rich business houses, the govt could have coerced them , silenced them and broken the back by economic strangulation. But that is not the case with the Bhrashtachar Mitao aur Kala Dhan wapas Lao Andolan. It is indeed People’s Movement. Moreover, women from all strata of society are with Swami Ramdev Ji in uprooting corruption and bringing the Indian black money back from the foreign banks. Women have felt the pinch more than men of rising prices because of economic corruption. That is why they are prepared to be in the forefront of the movement again, notwithstanding cruelty of the worst order committed by the Police at the Ramlila grounds. The police of our country have shown to the world that they specialise in doing Ravanlila.
Thus Swami Ramdev ji has sounded the bugle and the battle has begun anew. May Parmatma help forces of righteousness and guide them on the path of success. The TRUTH will prevail ultimately. SATYAMEV JAYATE NANRITAM.
