Kolkata, June 12: Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee today expressed relief at yoga guru Ramdev's decision to break his fast against corruption and wished him well for his health.


"Thank God that he has given up his fast. I pray to God for his health," Mukherjee told newsmen when asked to comment on Ramdev's decision to break his fast.

Asked to comment on the yoga guru's resolve to continue his agitation against corruption, he said, "He can fight. I do not have a problem if anyone decides to agitate."

Meanwhile, the Congress asserted in Delhi that the decision to undertake fast and also to call it off was Ramdev's and the party had nothing to do with it. PTI
