Yoga Guru and spiritual leader, Baba Ramdev has alleged that there are foreign countries (particularly Islamic and Christian powers) who are funding an anti-Modi campaign trying to drive him out of power.
In an exclusive interview with Republic TV, the founder of Patanjali Ayurved has said:
"The entire world is viewing the (Lok Sabha) 2019 elections. The enemy powers which are inside and outside the country, along with many Christian and Muslim countries are funding lakhs of crores for stopping Modi to come back in power."
Questioning these alleged foreign power about their diatribe against PM Modi, he added:
"But please tell me, what has Modi done wrong for this country? Why so much hatred towards just one man, who does not even have a family and worships Bharat Mata? One man, who has taken up working for the nation as his duty and works 24x7 tirelessly for the country, always thinking about its well being, why target him?"
Ramdev Baba who has cast his vote in the first phase of polls on April 11 at Haridwar, Uttarakhand has openly backed PM Narendra Modi for a second term.
"This time also, we cannot see an alternative to Prime Minister Modi... 'Chowkidar' is not a thief, he is pure, the people of the country are saying this. Nobody in the world can say that Prime Minister Modi has robbed anything," Ramdev had told in an interview.
Speaking on PM Modi's various accomplishments, he had added:
"Be it surgical strike, airstrike or 'satellite strike', due to all these the trust of people on Prime Minister Modi has increased. Opposition's alliance is dominating in few regions, but the mood of the nation is more towards Prime Minister Modi."
On Tuesday, Ramdev had also blessed Union Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore while he filed for his Lok Sabha nomination at Jaipur saying:
"Today Rajyavardhanji has defined the development in Jaipur, he has built roads, constructed 34 stadiums, and many more. He has maintained a good relation with people, relation of love and compassion, he has done a politics of goodwill and therefore I am here to give him blessings."
