Kejriwal has lost his way: Ramdev

Hitting out at Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal for calling leaders corrupt "without any proof", yoga guru Ramdev here on Saturday said the Aam Aadmi Party leader who had set out to cleanse the system had "lost his way".

"We should give proof while levelling allegations. It is the biggest dishonesty to label people as dishonest and defend your own corrupt people like Somnath Bharti, who has created uproar in the country with his acts," he told reporters here.

Describing Kejriwal as his "former associate", Ramdev said they had backed him on the issue of war against corruption "but he is deflecting from his mission. There is difference between his words and deeds now. I feel sorry for him.... He has got derailed from the path. It pains us."

"AAP has lost its sense and also Kejriwal, who labelled (BJP leader Nitin) Gadkari as corrupt in order to prove himself as honest person. He is trying to portray himself as honest and all other leaders as dishonest. That is bad," he added.

Ramdev, who has openly backed the BJP prime ministerial candidate, said, "His (Kejriwal's) workers do not desist from terming Narendra Modi as corrupt. By doing this, he will further lose his respect and dignity."

He also questioned the Delhi CM's allegations against union minister Farooq Abdullah. "He is a very serious person. Whatever Kejriwal is doing is a cheap act," he said.
