'Ramdev free to install himself as middleman between political parties'

Reacting sharply to Yoga guru Ramdev's offer to mediate between the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), AAP leader Kumar Vishwas said it seems that Ramdev is trying too hard to project himself as the middleman between political parties.

Ramdev had recently claimed that the AAP had lost its way on issues and was looking for chances to merge with the saffron party. He offered to mediate between them, if rookie party was willing.

Kumar Vishwas was here on Sunday to take out a road show from Bahadurgarh to Lakhan Majra in support of party's Rohtak nominee Naveen Jaihind.

Vishwas said the rookie party is receiving an overwhelming response in all Lok Sabha constituencies across the country, but if Ramdev wants to install himself as a 'Bicholiya' (middleman), he was free to do so.

On the prospects of the AAP in Haryana, he said the question is not about how many seats his party can win, the point is to awaken people against rampant corruption and lavish lifestyle of the politicians of the Congress and BJP, while public is made to suffer for basic amenities.

Training guns on chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and Congress Rohtak nominee Deepender Singh Hooda, he said despite Deepender having huge money power to back him, the son of a small-time farmer, Naveen Jaihind is receiving huge response, which is a sign of change.

Mocking at the Congressmen, Vishwas said he is contesting from Amethi against Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and Naveen is contesting against the son of Haryana chief minister, but both "national pappu" and "local pappu" (Congressmen) would lose their seats.
