Varanasi: AAP has opposed the proposed programme of Baba Ramdev in Varanasi and it has approached to Election Commission.
In its com plaits, is has draw attention towards the publicity of a proposed yoga camp by Baba Ramdev in the city on the evening of May 4. Posters and stickers announcing such a programme can be seen in some parts of the city.
AAP said tht Baba Ramdev has recently used highly condemnable language agains the Dalits and women, following which the Election Commission denied permission for his yoga camps in Amethi (Uttar Pradesh) and some parts of Himachal Pradesh.
Any attempt by Baba Ramdev to participate in a public function in this constituency is likely to create a law and order problem, since people are angry due to his irresponsible utterances which have created hatred in the society.
The Aam Aadmi Party demands that no such camp be allowed in the Varanasi Parliamentary constituency till the date of polling to avoid escalation of tension.
Recently, the commission itself had reiterated its October 2013 order in which it has been made clear that no political message should be allowed on the pretext of holding a yoga camp.
It is an admitted fact that Baba Ramdev is campaigning for the BJP, and therefore, the Aam Aadmi Party requests the commission to take all possible steps to ensure free and fair elections.
