TURA, Feb 9 � Yoga guru Baba Ramdev paid a day�s visit here on Tuesday and held an open air yoga session for close to three hours while simultaneously preaching against corruption in public life that has drained the country�s natural resources leading to widespread disparity and inequality.
The yoga guru arrived at the BSF headquarters at Dobasipara here and was greeted by a crowd of over five thousand yoga enthusiasts and well wishers.
He mentioned about the secret bank accounts abroad in which several thousand crores of rupees have been moved out from the country by individuals and groups and said a move must be made to bring it all back.
The yoga guru also informed that a move is underway in the country to put pressure on policy makers to bring back the stolen money.
He categorically stated that the money belonging to the country ought to be returned for the welfare and progress of the nation.
�There is a tendency among sections of the people to try and conceal monetary gains. We need to do away with that and instead embrace nature and simplicity of life,� said Baba Ramdev while expressing happiness with the pristine natural surroundings of Tura that reminded him of the Himalayan foothills.
Although the yoga programme was a success, there were moments of concern on the eve of the Baba�s arrival. Miscreants set on fire a welcome gate for the yoga guru at Rongkhon, the entry point to Tura. The Rongkhon Development Action Committee has condemned the burning down of the gate by vested interest groups and called for strong action against the guilty.
