Baba Ramdev today took a two-hour break from the protest saying he has to discuss issues with government representatives on his demands for bringing back black money stashed away abroad and end corruption.

"There will be a two-hour break now. I have to discuss issues with government representatives," Ramdev said addressing his followers at Ramlila Maidan where he started his hunger strike.

Among the demands made by Ramdev are an ordinance to repatriate black money from abroad, capital punishment for people convicted for corruption and speedy trials of persons accused of graft.

He said government should give in writing what it can give and they should take Constitutional steps in those cases where such measures are required.

"We agreed on some issues yesterday. On some issues partial consensus was arrived at. Till 100 per consensus is reached, we will continue our protest," he said.
