Not denying the chances that he may float a political outfit after two months,Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Wednesday spoke about his ambitions of being a catalyst to bring about change in the political system.

Addressing mediapersons in the city on Wednesday before moving to Solon for a rally,Ramdev said: “A political alternative would be presented to the people of the country within two months to enable a change serving the interests of the common man.”

He added: “I am set to fight against social,economic and political inequalities existing in the country. I will organise yoga shivir-cum-awareness camps in all Lok Sabha constituencies,as it is my duty to bring change in the election scenario.” “I promise the people (about bringing) a political power in Parliament… We need at least 300 MPs to remove social and economic injustice and put the country on the path of development,” Ramdev said,adding,however,that he was interested neither in joining politics nor in pursuing any political office. When asked whether social activist Anna Hazare would be with him,Ramdev said he had never divorced Hazare.

Slamming the Congress for its alleged involvement in scams like Bofors and AgustaWestland chopper deal,Ramdev said: “Why is the CBI not arresting any of them? Congress is anti-people,anti-state and have anti-development agenda. They play fraud with aam aadmi in the name of budget,as middle class ends up paying indirect taxes for nothing. If they want India to grow,they need to bring black money into the country.”

He added: “Since the last two years,CBI is behind me and had failed to find strong evidence against me. Congress act against those who raise their voice against them.”
