"There can be objection to the language or words used by Kejriwal but his contention is absolutely right," Ramdev said at a news conference after observing a day-long fast against illegal mining and corruption in Goa.

"There is no doubt in what Kejriwal said," he said.

"When we can elect MPs then why can't we have a right to speak against them," Ramdev asked.

Addressing an election rally in Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh yesterday, Kejriwal had said that "rapists, murderers and looters" are sitting in Parliament.
