Sibal betrayed us, fast to continue: Baba Ramdev

delhi Updated: Jun 04, 2011 22:00 IST

In a certain twist of developments, yoga guru Baba Ramdev accused senior government ministers of betraying him and said that the fast started by him will continue till government gives written commitment on his three main demands.

Ramdev was angry when Kapil Sibal showed a letter signed by key negotiator Acharya Balakrishna of Baba Ramdev's group, which said that the fast taken up by them will be brought to end by June 4-6 after the government gives a written assurance accepting all his demands.

The Baba said that Kapil Sibal had betrayed him by making the letter public. The letter had been taken from them by the government to just show to the Prime Minister.

Earlier, union minister Kapil Sibal on Saturday said the government had agreed to most of the demands of Baba Ramdev, and that there was some misunderstanding with the yoga guru.

Talking to reporters here, Sibal said the government had agreed to constitute a committee to form a law for tracking black money and declaring it a national asset. However, Ramdev thought that the government was unwilling to formulate a law, he said.

"I talked to him on phone today and explained that constituting a committee means law will be formed.

"Perhaps Ramdevji had some misapprehension because we said that we will make a committee... in six months, the committee will give its report," he said.

Ramdev is sitting on a fast at Ramlila Ground here against graft and black money stashed abroad.
