RSS on Saturday clarified that it has no "direct or indirect" role in the yoga guru Ramdev led agitation against graft, and appealed the Centre to shun its obstinacy and talk to the fasting leader.


"RSS has no direct or indirect role in the agitation against corruption launched by the civil society and Ramdev," RSS spokesman Ram Madhav said in Ballia.

Terming the UPA government as insensitive, Ram Madhav criticised it for remaining passive in bringing an end to Ramdev's fast.

Ram Madhav who was in town to take part in training programme of RSS, asked the union government to give up its stubborn stance and talk to Ramdev.

He said that the government should consider the feelings of the people on this issue.

Making an appeal to Ramdev to break his fast in the interest of the country, Ram Madhav said that it was also the wish of all nationalist and patriotic people.

On the question of black money, he criticised the UPA government saying that it (UPA) wanted to wriggle out of this issue to save the people involved in it.
