Weeks ahead of his scheduled agitation in New Delhi against black money, yoga guru Baba Ramdev’s convoy and procession was attacked allegedly by a crowd of Congress workers in Bhopal on Thursday afternoon.
According to reports, the yoga guru’s car was targeted by a group of men, believed to be Congress workers, threw stones at random while raising slogans against him. They burnt his effigy, pulled down his hoardings and waved black flags while a large contingent of the police used force to disperse the demonstrators. A police sub-inspector, Ravi Deheria, was grievously injured in the stone pelting.
The convoy was attacked after he left BHEL cultural hall where he addressed functionaries of Patanjali Yog Sewa Samiti, Mahila Patanjali Yog Samiti and state office bearers of Bharat Swabhiman Yatra, Yuva Bharat.
However, Baba was escorted by his security staff and his supporters and taken to a safer place.
The assault on Ramdev cavalcade came exactly a day after Congress workers of the AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh faction allegedly ransacked shops here in the Madhya Pradesh capital that sold the yoga guru’s herbal medicines. Wednesday’s vandalism was the result of certain comments made by Ramdev about Digvijay Singh and his family life. While vandalising the shops and beating Baba Ramdev’s pictures with shoes, the state Congress had threatened that they would beat-up the yoga guru if he landed in Bhopal......
