New Delhi: After achieving victory in Lok Sabha polls, senior BJP leaders today “thanked” Ramdev for “awakening” the voters and compared his efforts with the struggles undertaken by national leaders Mahatma Gandhi and Jayprakash Narayan.


Party veteran Arun Jaitley said,”The role played by Ramdev in awakening the voters is similar to the struggles undertaken by Mahatma Gandhi and Jayprakash Narayan. He had no greed of any post.

“His motto is to strengthen the system. The struggles he undertook against black money and corruption is similar to those struggles (undertaken by Mahatma Gandhi and Jayprakash Narayan).”

Jaitley was speaking at ‘Sankalppurti Mahotsav' a programme organised by followers of Ramdev after the electoral success of the BJP.
