Baba Ramdev News 26 June 2011 (Yoga guru Baba Ramdev arrived in New Delhi on Sunday)

New Delhi, Jun 26: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev arrived in New Delhi on Sunday, three weeks after being evicted from the capital for his protest fast against black money. Ramdev returned to meet one of his followers, Rajbala, who was injured in the police crackdown at Ramlila Maidan on June 5.
Baba Ramdev, whose fast against corruption was mired in controversy, was back in the national capital on Sunday June 26 to visit his follower, who was critically injured in the police crackdown on June 5, in hospital.  
Addressing a press conference, Ramdev said Raj Bala's condition was critical and it would be a miracle if she recovered. He rubbished police claims that they did not hit her.
Condemning the police crackdown, he said the world was a witness to their atrocities on women and children at the Ramlila ground.
He questioned the sanity behind government's move to welcome him at the airport and then unleash police on sleeping protestors at midnight.
He alleged that the police had been sent to kill him at the Ramlila ground and claimed that he had evidence to prove it.
Ramdev said that a fire had been sparked off on the stage to kill him and when his supporters tried to douse it, the police lathicharged them.
Speaking on his aide Balakrishna, he said that his passport was obtained through legal means. He launched a counter-attack saying it is the government who should be questioned for issuing the passport and not him.
Ramdev was banned from entering Delhi for 15 days after his fast at the Ramlila ground ended with the police descending on the protestors at midnight and chasing the out. Ramdev himself was flown to Haridwar, and after being hospitalised, broke his fast a few days later on the advice of Sri Sri Ravishankar and others.
But the police crackdown devastated the life of one Raj Bala, a 51-year-old housewife and follower of Ramdev. In the clashes at Ramlila ground, she suffered spinal injuries that left her paralysed. She is still in G B Pant hospital in a critical condition.
