Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday met Baba Ramdev, who is continuing his fast against black money in Haridwar, and said the government "has lost its balance" in dealing with issues raised by the yoga guru.

Sushma Swaraj said the government first sent four ministers to meet the yoga guru on his demands relating to tackling corruption and bringing back black money and later sent 5,000 policemen to beat him.

"The government has lost its balance," she said.

She said neither Prime Minister Manmohan Singh nor Congress president Sonia Gandhi had visited those who were injured in police action at the Ramlila Ground in New Delhi post June 4 midnight.

"Neither the prime minister nor Sonia Gandhi has gone to meet the injured," she said.

Sushma Swaraj, who is leader of opposition in the Lok Sabha, said that ministers had been claiming that there were no injuries in police action whereas she had met 35 injured in the hospital.

Ramdev is continuing his fast at his ashram near Hardwar after being evicted from New Delhi in the late night swoop.

Sushma Swaraj said Ramdev had lost weight but his morale was high.
