|Baba Ramdev on Indefinite Hunger Strike against Corruption|
NEW DELHI (May 4) - Baba Ramdev, India's most famous yoga master, started his indefinite hunger strike at the Ramlila Maidan in New Delhi today. The government yesterday failed to persuade him to call off his plans.
Baba Ramdev took a two-hour break from the protest citing he has to argue matters with government representatives on his demands for getting back black money put away abroad and end corruption.
Baba Swami Ramdev dresses like a guru but is worshipped like a film star during his hunger strike and hundreds of his followers vowed to join him.
It is expected to mound more pressure onto the government, hit by a series of corruption scandals, including allegations of kickbacks at the Commonwealth Games.
