At a time when serpentine queues outside banks and ATMs has become a recurring sight, Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev on Sunday said if jawans fighting at the frontier can go without food for days, then those waiting patiently for their turn to withdraw or swap money can do the same for the nation. “During war, our soldiers fight sans eating for 7-8 days; so can’t we do the same for our nation”?”  Ramdev told news agency ANI.

Reports of people struggling to buy their monthly rations because of the currency shortage have made headlines across the country. On Saturday, villagers in Madhya Pradesh looted a Public Distribution System outlet as the store owner refused to accept Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes.  However, people can use the old denominations to pay utility bills till November 14.

Ramdev had previously lauded Prime Minsiter Narendra Modi for his bold move against curbing black money. He said it will go a long way in curbing terrorism, Naxalism and illegal businesses. ““Entire country greets the PM for his move to control black money, the illegal businesses, corruption and economic offences,” he said.

In 2012, at the height of Anna Hazare’s anti-corruption movement, Ramdev asked the erstwhile Congress government to discontinue the Rs 500, Rs 1000 notes.

    Ramdev could not even fast for ( probably for more than two days) a few years ago and now he is asking the people of this country to fast for the country' s sake.Ramdev ,Modi and his Ministers are all frauds.

            Justifying govt. Mis management proper word would be high handedness. It is same baba who was running away from last govt. atrocities in women disguise. Now misusing armed forces to justify govt high handedness. What is this double standard.

                    So Far as Baba Ramdevji concerned he has completely changed the atude of all those who crossed 35 years of age and realized that only Yoga can keep their health in tact.Even Senior Citizen have adopted his advice on how to take care of Heart, Blood Pressure and many diseases they suffer. For that Hats off to him.He made real revolution towards maintaining good health of Citizens.What he does it is for our nation.He is true nationalist and Patriot.

                            Why do you every time bring in instances of soldiers? What have you done? Why don't you and your followers starve for the sake of the country and then talk??

                              Babaji please ask all your chelas and bhakts to not go and exchange money for next two weeks. Less bhakts will help. Unless bhakta and you had exchanged the money before the scheme was annunced.

                                Will you provide ries to the people who are manufacturing the patanjali products? Will you pay for the traders who are providing raw-materials for patanjali products? If yes, then Baba is ready to distribute the products for free.

                                            Babaji, Namaskar. Almost all Indians welcome the 'bitter' but 'curative' step taken by Modijilt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;-lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;It is the DESIGNER PRESS and their PRESSUTES who are making big noises - as if there is a big calamity.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;-lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;This is being done on the instigation by their LOOTKHOR netas who keep these PRESSUTES in their pay roll. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;-lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Bhenji lost 35K Cr, Netaji lost 40K Cr, Didi lost 40K Cr, Congress Party 6 Lakh crore, Chidu lost 35K Cr - But for the DEMONETIZATION, a major chunk of what our SICKULAR NETAs lost would have gone to our PRESSUTES.
