GUWAHATI, July 12 � Yoga guru and anti-corruption crusader Baba Ramdev today said that the agitation against big dams must be able to change the course of Assam�s politics by voting out the anti-people Government out of power.
�I wonder why such people who dare to play with the lives of the common man are voted to power. They should be shown the exit door,� Ramdev said.
Ramdev, who was here in Guwahati to meet peasants� leader Akhil Gogoi, further said that the anti-dam campaign along with the issues of black money and right over natural resources, would take centre stage, during the dharna programme on August 9 on the anniversary of Quit India movement at New Delhi.
�Like Ganga, river Brahmaputra is the lifeline of the people of Assam and at no cost will anybody be allowed to play with the lives of the people,� said Ramdev while speaking to media persons at Akhil Gogoi�s residence this evening.
The Yoga guru further informed that the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti, along with a number of organisations from across the country, will also take part in the protest programme in New Delhi.
Condemning the attack on KMSS general secretary Akhil Gogoi, Ramdev said: �The attack on Akhil Gogoi is another heinous act under the Congress rule. People�s basic rights are being violated at will and common men�s interest is given the least importance.�
�I am surprised to see that the Government has not yet ordered any inquiry into the incident. Akhil Gogoi stands for the weaker section and we are with him.� he pointed out.
Flaying the Government for its inaction, he went on to term the State as a den of black money.
Ramdev will meet several other organizations seeking their support for the protest programme.
