Jaipur Echoing Yoga guru Ramdev, Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravishankar today accused the government of protecting those who have stashed black money abroad, terming it as “unacceptable”.
“It is unfortunate and unacceptable that the government is not ready to disclose the names who have parked (black) money outside the country. By doing this, government is protecting those people,” Ravishankar told reporters here tonight.
Noting that he supported Baba Ramdev when it came to the issue corruption as it was something “unacceptable”, he said, “Politics is not my cup of tea and I am not interested in forming any political party, but we, reformers, are together when it comes to the issue of corruption and other social evils. Now saints have to stand up against corruption because people have suffered a lot.”
On the problem of Naxalism, Ravishankar, said wrong ideology was the root cause of the problem and the Art of Living was conducting programmes to bring those people to mainstream.
Ravishankar will be performing Rudrabhishek and hold a Mahasatsang here today on the occasion of Mahashivaratri in which around 50,000 people from all over the country and abroad are likely to take part.
