NEW DELHI, May 2 � After Anna Hazare and his team, Ramdev has stoked a controversy calling MPs �dacoits and murderers�, evoking strong condemnation from Parliamentarians who asserted that such �insults� are unacceptable, with Lalu Prasad dubbing the yoga guru as a �mental case�, reports PTI
Addressing the media while launching his month-long yatra in Chhattisgarh�s Durg yesterday, Ramdev said there are good people among the Parliamentarians and he respected them. �But there are dacoits, murderers, illiterates among them. We have to save Parliament. We have to remove corrupt people.�
The issue was raised in the Lok Sabha today with Speaker Meira Kumar and several MPs, including senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha, not mincing words in deprecating Ramdev�s utterances and asked people to show respect to Parliament.
RJD chief Lalu Prasad was also unsparing in his criticism, saying the yoga guru was a frustrated man and a �mental case�.
