Yoga guru Ramdev on Thursday said people of the country should have voting right in the Presidential poll.
"It is unfortunate that only few are entitled to vote in the Presidential poll, the entire nation should have a participation in the process," Ramdev told reporters during a two-day yoga camp at Arjun stadium here.
Whether it is a political or a non-political person in the race, the common man should have their say in the entire process, he said.
He further went on to say that people should also have the right to decide their Prime Minister.
In the third phase of Bharat Swabhiman Yatra, Ramdev reached Jind on Thursday.
"The campaign launched by me to bring back the blackmoney stashed in foreign banks has left people involved in corruption in an awkward position," he said.
The Yoga guru claimed, "In democracy, mass awareness and public opinion lead to anger among the people which forces even political parties to mend their ways. We are working on creating mass awareness to bring such people on the right path."
