    Police action against Baba Ramdev undemocratic, immoral: TDP :tup:

    Telugu Desam Party chief N Chandrababu Naidu has strongly condemned the police action against yoga guru Baba Ramdev late last night.

    “It is a most undemocratic and immoral act. The UPA government should immediately apologise to the people of the country,” Mr. Naidu demanded in a statement here on Sunday.

    “Where was the need for police to clamp prohibitory orders under Section 144 Cr P C at Baba’s fast venue?”, he questioned.

    The TDP chief said Baba Ramdev was carrying out a movement against corruption in a most peaceful and democratic manner.

    The way in which police used force and fired tear-gas shells at his supporters was highly condemnable, he said.

    “The UPA government is using repressive and vengeful methods against those fighting to protect the interests of the country. It should apologise to the people over this,” Mr. Naidu said.

    Ramdev arrest: The prime minister should act now - Rediff.com India News

    The prime minister needs to address the public anger over the black money issue, suggests B Raman.


    The ham-handed handling of Baba Ramdev's [ Images ] movement against foreign bank accounts of Indian nationals by the government does not speak well either of the government headed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh [ Images ] or of the Congress headed by Sonia Gandhi [ Images ], or of the senior bureaucracy advising the PM.

    Public anger against the perceived lack of action by the government to detect and proceed legally against the holders of illegal accounts abroad had been building up at least for a year, if not longer. This anger was more faithfully and accurately reflected in the internet than in the print and electronic media.

    While the electronic media played a commendable role in reflecting public anger over the foot-dragging by the government in taking action on charges of corruption against certain political leaders, it did not take serious note of the internet anger over government's perceived inaction against illegal accounts held abroad by Indian nationals.

    Repeated examples of the cover-up by the government in the Bofors case where one had useful leads of some illegal accounts held abroad by some of the dramatis personae in the Bofors scandal created strong suspicions in the minds of many that there must be other such instances of cover-up by the government to prevent the truth from being found out in respect of foreign accounts.

    The government did face a genuine difficulty in taking action since the co-operation of foreign governments was involved. But there have been instances where other governments such as those of the United States and Germany [ Images ] had overcome such difficulties and successfully elicited the co-operation of countries such as Switzerland [ Images ] for action against financial wrong-doers.

    Adding to these suspicions in the public mind was the evasive reactions of the government to the leads coming from WikiLeaks on this issue. Instead of taking these leads sincerely and seriously and examining how the government could use them, the government treated them casually as if the leads found in the WikiLeaks disclosures were of no significance or importance.

    The government thus failed to follow up vigorously on the few leads that were forthcoming, thereby creating -- rightly or wrongly -- an impression in the public mind that the government is not serious about taking action to detect and prosecute holders of illegal foreign bank accounts.

    The government not only failed to act, but it also failed to notice how public anger was building up on this issue on the internet. Since this anger was not reflected by the print and electronic media, the government thought that it could continue to get away with its inaction, amounting to a cover-up of a serious problem.

    There are various ways in which the government could have acted in order to remove this impression in the public mind about the studied inaction by Dr Manmohan Singh's government and the Congress.

    The PM could have addressed the people and interacted with civil society leaders agitating on this issue in order to convince them about the seriousness of the government's plans to deal with this issue. He didn't. He maintained a sphinx-like silence, which comes naturally to him.

    The prime minister could have visited countries like Switzerland which attract financial wrong-doers in order to seek their co-operation in the matter. He could have made it clear to their leaders that future development of our trade with those countries would depend on their co-operation with India [ Images ] in detecting and prosecuting financial wrong-doers. He didn't.

    He could have set up a task force consisting of experts in financial intelligence collection and investigation to study how countries such as the US and Germany have dealt with this issue and draw lessons. He didn't.

    He could have asked the same task force to study the working of our institutions responsible for financial intelligence collection and investigation in order to identify deficiencies and remove them. He didn't.

    He could have set up a mechanism for keeping the public continuously informed of the actions being taken by the government. He didn't.

    When he heard that Baba Ramdev was planning to agitate on this issue in a big way, the PM should have asked his emissaries to contact him, explain what the government has already been doing and what it intended doing in future and advised him not to embark on an agitationl approach which could prove counter-productive.

    Instead of doing so, the government mistakenly thought that it could benefit from the support base of the Baba to reduce the support base of Anna Hazare.

    It was ridiculous to have sent a group of senior ministers to meet the Baba at the airport on his arrival and negotiate with him there. The negotiations with the Baba should have been before he arrived in New Delhi [ Images ] and not after his arrival at the airport or in a well-known hotel.

    Through its actions and inactions, the government unnecessarily and unwisely built up the image of the Baba. When the government found to its consternation that the Baba was not as malleable as it thought he would be, it swung to the other extreme of midnight action, using tear gas-smoke to put an end to the hunger-strike.

    The way the government acted would have recalled in the minds of many how the Indira Gandhi [ Images ] government used to act during the days of Emergency between 1975 and 1977. If the government had wanted to act strongly against the Baba, the right time for his arrest would have been before his arrival in New Delhi or on his arrival at the airport.

    Instead of sending his senior ministers to hail him, the prime minister could have sent the police to arrest him and take him away from New Delhi.

    The government and the Congress, due to their inability to think lucidly and act convincingly and meaningfully, have landed themselves in a messy situation with likely negative consequences.

    The first step for getting out of this mess is to convince the public that they have taken note of its anger and are serious about dealing with this issue.

    The prime minister should address the nation, exercise his personal leadership, keep the ministers and party spokesmen under control instead of making highly unwise and potentially provocative statements and make it clear to the party and Sonia Gandhi that he would not brook any interference in this matter.

    He should make it clear that he would be prepared to quit as PM if there was any interference.

    PM responsible for police action on Baba Ramdev: Narendra Modi - The Times of India

    AHMEDABAD: Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi alleged that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was responsible for the police action on Baba Ramdev and his followers at the Ramlila ground in New Delhi.

    Condemning the incident as the worst day in the history of India, Modi lambasted the Congress-led UPA government for being behind the lathi-charge on innocent people.

    "I would like to tell Prime Minister Manmohan Singh that you cannot escape by saying that you did not know. You are directly responsible for what has happened at the Ramlila ground in Delhi," Modi said while inaugurating a new dental college in Khokhara area here.

    "The PM had said during the elections that he would bring back black money stashed in Swiss banks within 100 days of coming into power. But today it is two years and nothing has happened," Modi said

    "Congress will have to answer 120 crore people of India about the use of violence on innocent people," he said.

    Advocate moves SC on Ramdev issue - The Times of India :tup:

    NEW DELHI: An advocate on Sunday approached the Supreme Court seeking a direction to the government to issue a white paper on the entire episode leading to the eviction of yoga guru Ramdev and the alleged barbaric police action early today against his followers at the Ramlila Grounds.

    The petition filed by Ajay Agarwal said in the white paper the government should explain the entire sequence of events, details of negotiations and the so-called deal between the government and Ramdev.

    The petition, moved before Additional Registrar Vinod Kumar who is the vacation officer, sought a direction to the ministry of home affairs, the Intelligence Bureau (IB) and Delhi Police to produce the entire records leading to the action.

    The advocate has sought the production of these records with in 24 hours.

    The additional registrar asked Agarwal to mention the petition on Monday before a vacation bench comprising justices B S Chauhan and Swantanter Kumar at 10:30 am for hearing.

    The petition has also sought direction to the government to restrain its ministers -- Kapil Sibal, Subodh Kant Sahay and Pawan Kumar Bansal -- from making any statement, justifying the midnight swoop which is leading to provocation among the public.

    In the petition, Agarwal has named Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Home Minister P Chidambaram, Sibal, Bansal, Tourism Minister Subodh Kant Sahay, Cabinet Secretary K M Chandrasekhar, Home Secretary G K Pillai, IB Chief Nehchal Sandhu and Delhi Police Commissioner B K Gupta as respondents.

    In the petition, the advocate has alleged that the forceful eviction of Ramdev and the use of force against his followers was against the fundamental rights guaranteed under Article 14,19 and 21 of the Constitution.

    Congress leader Anil Shastri slams police crackdown at Ramlila Grounds - The Times of India


    NEW DELHI: Senior Congress leader Anil Shastri today said the police crackdown on Baba Ramdev's agitation at Ramlila Grounds was "unfortunate and avoidable".

    In a posting on microblogging site Twitter, Shastri, who is also the editor of party mouthpiece 'Congress Sandesh', said: "What happened last night at Ramlila Grounds in Delhi was unfortunate and avoidable."

    He, however, maintained that it was the government and not the Congress party which had taken the decision. "It is Manmohan Singh govt. Was not a party decision (sic)," he twitted.

    Yesterday, Shastri had slammed the government's move to send four ministers to receive Baba Ramdev at the Delhi airport.

    "Indira Ji or Rajiv Ji would not have sent their ministers to airport to placate a 'Baba' arriving in a private jet," he had written in a post.
