    So sleeping people can create law and order problem?? Since when?? Govt could have carried out this in the morning or in the evening of 4th itself but they waited for people to sleep. Clearly shows that Congress govt is very much influenced by General O'dyre :azn:



    Finally correct this time.

    The Hindu : News / National : Centre will not be able to bear consequence of stir: Ramdev

    Claiming the support of all major parties barring the Congress to his agitation, yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Monday said the Centre would not be able to bear the consequence of the satyagraha.

    “I have respect for the Prime Minister on a personal level but he did not discharge his national duty (unhone rastra dharm nahi nibhayaa),” Baba Ramdev told reporters referring to the police crackdown at Ramlila Ground.

    Asked about the organisations supporting him, he claimed, “Barring Congress, all political parties are supporting me. Though some are criticising me, I know they are supporting me from their hearts. I am getting support from everywhere including spiritual and religious organisations.”

    He said the “Centre will not be able to bear the consequences of the ongoing satyagraha“.

    Thanking the Supreme Court for taking suo motu notice of the crackdown, Baba Ramdev said human rights organisations and the National Commission for Women should take note of the atrocities committed against innocent people including women and children in Ramlila grounds.

    Lashing out at the Delhi Police for its action, he said, “Lobbying teargas shells in a closed shamiana was the most violent act of the police. Police attacked innocent women and children.”

    “Police did not allow any injured person to stay in hospitals,” he alleged.

    When pointed out that he was fleeing from the site dressed like a woman, he said, “It was not a weakness to be in woman’s dress. A mother gives birth to a man.”

    Earlier, undeterred by his forceful eviction from New Delhi, Baba Ramdev resumed his agitation at his ashram here, saying the ‘satyagraha’ will continue till his demands on curbing corruption and black money are met by the Centre.

    Baba Ramdev sat on ‘satygraha’ along with his supporters and disciples at ‘yagyashala’ of his Patanjali Yogpeeth late last night, yogpeeth sources said on Monday.

    The yoga guru, who was bundled out of the national capital after police crackdown on his followers, tried to resume his satyagrah in Noida on Sunday, but was not allowed to enter Uttar Pradesh.

    He was stopped on the border of Muzaffarnagar district at Bhuraheri police check post, where the administrative officials asked him to return to Uttarakhand.

    Later, Baba returned to Patanjali Yogpeeth last night and began his fast.

    Baba Ramdev told his followers that he will continue his satyagrah till his demands on curbing corruption and black money are met by the centre.

    Baba Ramdev had yesterday said, “No one should violate law and so I am not going to Delhi. I was not allowed to reach Noida in U.P. to continue the protest. Now it will happen here“.

    He had said that the government can stop him from entering Delhi for not more than 15 to 30 days and he will come again to the national capital.

    Uttarakhand Chief Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank had last evening met Baba Ramdev in Yogpeeth and assured him full support and security if he wanted to continue his fast.

    Former Uttarakhand Chief Minister and veteran Congress leader N.D. Tiwari had also travelled to Yogpeeth to meet Baba Ramdev and lent his full support to the cause for which he is fighting.

    The Uttarakhand BJP has announced that it will observe a “black day” at all district headquarters today to protest the police crackdown on Baba Ramdev and his supporters.

    Yogpeeth sources said that if the number of those sitting on fast with Baba increases, the venue of satyagrah can be shifted to a bigger hall in phase II of Patanjali Yogpeeth.

    Keeping in view the demonstrations planned by different groups, a high alert has been sounded in the entire State, police said.

    The Hindu : News / National : Drafting Committee members boycott Lokpal meeting

    Civil society activists led by Anna Hazare on Monday boycotted the meeting of the Joint Drafting Committee on Lokpal bill saying government’s intentions raised serious doubts about having a strong anti-corruption watchdog and protesting against the police crackdown on Ramdev.

    The activists have also sought rescheduling of the next meeting of the JDC on June 10 to some other date because of some prior engagements of Mr. Hazare.

    After a meeting of the activists, Prashant Bhushan, one of the non-official members wrote a letter to Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, Chairman of JDC, saying the government desires to practically leave everyone out of Lokpal’s ambit-Prime Minister, horse trading of MPs, middle and lower bureaucracy judiciary.

    He said there was divergence even on the vision of Lokpal and if the government’s stand is accepted, Lokpal would be left to investigate the corruption of only 300-odd officers and Ministers.

    “This is government’s vision for Lokpal,” the letter said.

    The letter criticised the “casual and frivolous” manner in which the government had prepared the questionnaire to the Chief Ministers and the political parties which has been commented upon by them also.

    Referring to the mid-night crackdown on Baba Ramdev and his followers and other issues, Mr. Bhushan said “all these developments have raised doubts in our mind whether the government was at all interested in containing corruption and having a strong Lokpal bill.”

    “However, what happened on Saturday night in Ramlila Maidan has strengthened our doubts. All these developments have raised doubts about government’s intention and so we are not attending today’s meeting.” he added.

    The next meeting is scheduled on June 10. Mr. Hazare has prior engagements from June 9-11. “So we request rescheduling of that meeting,” Mr. Bhushan said.

    While waiting for government’s response, he cautioned that time was running out and the Committee was yet to finalise the basic principles behind the bill.

    It was never a law & order situation in the first place. Let's get that thing straight. Even if it's percieved to be a situation in coming days, then there are ways & means to go by!
    Since when this state has become a banana republic? you do not go & serve notice of eviction along with thousands of police force in the middle of the night when number of young, old, women & childrens are sleeping. That's not how the rule of law works. It might work in a country ruled by military junta or blood thirsty dictators like idi amin!! we are not that.. are we??
