While taking part in the International Yoga Day celebrations, Baba Ramdev on Wednesday quipped that BJP president Amit Shah had lost weight thanks to yoga. The yoga guru also added that Shah had increased his “political weight.” Speaking at Ahmedabad’s GMDC ground, Ramdev said: “Amit Shah has shed his body weight by doing yoga, but has increased his political weight substantially, giving tension to many.”

Ramdev, along with Shah and Gujarat CM Vijay Rupani, was a part of the International Yoga Day celebrations being held in Ahmedabad. “Amit bhai has lost significant weight in recent times. However, on the other side, his political weight has increased substantially. This must have given tension to many. I request them to do yoga to ease their stress,” Ramdev was quoted as saying by PTI.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi initiated that a new world record should be set in Yoga. Due to BJP chief Amit Shah’s guidance, and Gujarat government’s support, the event was a massive hit and we were successful in setting 24 new world records,” Ramdev claimed.

Ramdev also said that nearly three lakh participants were present at the Ahmedabad ground. “Today is the most important day for me, as more than three lakh people performed yoga at one place to set a new world record. We have broken the previous world record, which was set in the presence of our PM, by a huge margin,” Ramdev told reporters after the event.

On Tuesday, Ramdev had lashed out against those who are critical of yoga. “People who frivolously say that yoga is not a sport are ignorant and their opinion should be discarded. Yoga is also a sport and it should be included under the sports category,” he was quoted as saying by Times of India. ANI reported that in the next three-five years, Ramdev intends to operate around 11 lakh free yoga classes across the country, with government support.

    So Babaji claims Amit Shah does yoga and drinks his Amla, Aloe Vera and phalana juices. And he lost weight? Acchaaaaa. Kahan se? Pichwade se? Wahan to bamboo lagayi thi CBI ne. Lol. And just imagine a person if he actually does so much yoga is still so sick minded, vicious, conspirer, country breaker and a dangerous goonda. Sorry Babaji, your loes don't sell. May be you should just sell Patanjali not Amit Shah.

      Baba Ramdev is wasting his breath. Shri Amit Shah can shed neither his body weight nor his political weight.

        Useless nagative discussions by some pessimistic , nagative energies. We all should get inspired about early rise, morning Yoga and other health care tips . Always there will be such criticisms to good things.

          You should use all your "positive energy" attained by Shah like yoga to open your closed mind and oil your brain to see the realoty of murderers like Amit Shah. Have some Aloe vera and open the shut doors of your brain.

                Are you jealous that indigenous Bharatiyas who were suppressed for a millennium have found a way to come back. That is the best exercise they can do. If done regularly it is enough to create a healthy Bharat!! Thanks a million to PM Modi to even think about the health of his fellow countrymen. You can laugh. But after the laugh, what next???

                    Pillanna - ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ROFL ROFL ROFL - what was suppressed? what tosh and toff and kerfuffle! your hindootva ancestors were busy getting bribed by every invader for their selfish ends. what a shame! a tiny army of ragtag invaders crossed the khyber and conquered the 'mighty' hindutvas armed with their vedas puranas and 33cr gods. then the british ruled the same mighty hindootvas for nearly 200 years. thanks to the british and muslims, they unified this into India which was otherwise a region of 1000s of kingdoms. as for healthy healthyif you get rid of the saffronites, only then will it become healthy

                    Baba Ramdev is no Yogi or saint he is a millionaire living in luxury. True saints of India have nothing to do with money. Besises both he and Shah are Jewish backed. Shah should get himself educated and also work his brain muscles so that he develops a little grey matter. His body is also like jelly like that of Mr. Modi. The BJP is only in power due to the fact the Congress party went corrupt and pushed one family on the Indians. India is moving ahead because of the base our earlier leaders developed and due to some segments of the brilliant bureaucracy. Need for honest, balanced, experienced , educated and nationalistic leaders in India now.
