Guru on hunger strike over Indian corruption

Guru on hunger strike over Indian corruption
Text size Aa Aa

Baba Swami Ramdev dresses like a guru but is worshipped like a film star. He is India’s most famous yoga master and has now gone on hunger-strike to highlight the issue of corruption in the country.
Hundreds of his followers vowed to join him.
It is likely to pile more pressure onto the government, hit by a string of corruption scandals, including allegations of kickbacks at the Commonwealth Games.
But few commentators expect Ramdev will die for the cause.
They expect a deal will be forged allowing him to claim moral victory and paving the way for him to launch his own political party for the 2014 elections.
