Taking potshots at Ramdev, RJD chief Lalu Prasad today said that his illness was not due to fast but for “other reasons” like probe into financial transactions of his Trust.
Cautioning Ramdev against falling prey to the “designs of RSS and BJP, Prasad said if Ramdev wants to join politics he should do it as his own and not at their behest.
“Ramdev is not a Yogi or a Baba. He is a trainer. He was treating people of their ailments and that was fine. But he fell prey to the designs of RSS and Sangh Parivar, who have virtually destroyed him. I have sympathies for him. He hailed from a poor family.
“I want to tell him that RSS and Sangh Parivar have pushed him to the brink of ruin. He should now break his fast and re-start his yoga exercises for others.
