The fifth day of Baba Ramdev’s fast saw last minute support coming from the National Democratic Alliance.
Bharatiya Janata Party chief Nitin Gadkari, NDA convener Sharad Yadav, Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy and representatives of the Biju Janata Dal and Akali Dal visited the venue and shared the stage with the yoga guru.
Mr. Gadkari said: “Babaji, you are not alone. I have come here to tell you and thousands of your supporters that every member of the NDA is with you. We will actively support your agitation against corruption and black money. We forced suspension of question hour in both Houses of Parliament. We want the government to bring back black money.”
