Bhopal, June 17: Senior BJP leader and former Deputy Prime Minister L K Advani today criticised the union government saying the crackdown on Baba Ramdev's agitation at Ramlila Ground reminded him of the emergency days in 1975.

The action taken by the Centre earlier this month on Baba Ramdev's agitation at Ramlila Ground reminded us the days of emergency, which was imposed in the country on June 25, 1975, Advani told reporters at the airport while terming the police crackdown totally wrong.

Advani was here to open the Madhya Pradesh Natya Vidyalaya at Rangshri Little Baille Troupe Compound on the Shyamla Hills road.

On the issue of corruption, including the 2G spectrum scam, he said that his party would take a tough stand on these issues in the coming Parliament session and will demand a detailed discussion on it.

He alleged that the government was not doing much against corruption and even in the case of 2G scam, it was the Supreme Court, which took a tough stand and not the Centre.

He demanded a clarification from the government on the Lokpal bill issue and said that the government should come out with a bill as early as possible, so that, a detailed discussion can take place on it. PTI
