NEW DELHI, Aug 13 � The latest protest against corruption ended today after yoga guru Ramdev was taken into custody along with hundreds of supporters when it took an anti-Congress turn in their march towards Parliament demanding steps to bring back blackmoney stashed abroad, reports PTI.
On a day of high drama and after BJP and JD(U) leaders offered their support, Ramdev, who had been dilly-dallying for the past three days on his strategy, asked his thousands of supporters to march towards Parliament, three km away from the protest venue at Ramlila Maidan, for a dharna outside.
�Congress hatao, desh bachao� (Remove Congress, Save the country) was the slogan Ramdev gave in his address and later in the march that discarded any semblance of neutrality in the campaign against corruption mounted by him.
He had been claiming that his protest had no political agenda but intended to fight corruption.
As they started the march, police took Ramdev, who was on fast for the past five days, and his supporters into custody on charges of violating prohibitory orders for being taken to a makeshift jail in Bawana in the city�s outskirts.
