NEW DELHI: If Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif called the Indian prime minister `dehati aurat’ (village woman) in New York last week, yoga guru Ramdev has now termed Manmohan Singh `namard’ (an impotent man).
Speaking in Raipur, the yoga guru, who has just returned from the UK, slammed the Manmohan Singh-led government for withdrawing the ordinance on convicted lawmakers at the direction of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, said, “Madam ka shahzada kuch zyaada hee kud raha hai, aur hamare pradhan mantri mard hote hue bhi namard jaisa kaam kar rahe hain (Sonia’s son is becoming a little more unruly, and our prime minister despite being a man is behaving like an impotent man).’’
A strong critic of the Congress after his rally in Delhi’s Ramlila Grounds was forcibly removed, the yoga guru lambasted the Congress for corruption.
“The corruption under Congress has crossed all limits. During its 60-year rule over India, the Congress has looted people more than even the Mughals who ruled much longer,’’ Ramdev fumed.
Referring to the jailing of Lalu Yadav for corruption, the yoga guru said 90 percent leaders of the Congress will the same fate soon as he predicted that the NDA led by Narendra Modi will win over 300 seats in the 2014 parliament elections.
The yoga guru’s outburst was triggered by the government’s decision to seek withdrawal of the ordinance on convicted lawmakers after Rahul Gandhi trashed it as `non-sense’.
