Baba Ramdev gets Z category security, politicos cry foul

Written by | November 17, 2014 | 0

New Delhi:  Yoga guru Baba Ramdev has been given Z-category security which entitles him to cover by 22 armed guards and an escort car, according to media reports, leading to a flurry of criticism from various leaders across the political spectrum.

“What is the threat to Baba Ramdev? There are many yoga gurus in the nation. Z security shouldn’t become a status symbol,” CPI leader D Raja toldANI here.

Congress leader JP Agarwal also alleged that Baba Ramdev had been given security to “make him happy or to keep him quiet”.

BJP leader Vijay Goel, however, defended the move saying, “Congress has no issues now so they are picking up non-issues. Baba Ramdev has a huge following so obviously the government thinks of his security.”

Baba Ramdev has been actively campaigning for repatriation of black money issues and had also been arrested by the Delhi Police in 2012 while protesting against corruption and against the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government. (ANI)
