VHP on Thursday said that the campaign by yoga guru Ramdev against black money and corruption was a 'milestone' and it will continue to support such movements in future.
"VHP supports all such campaigns. People in power were frightened following the campaigns by Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdev. Though they tried to oppress Ramdev's drive but it is necessary to remind such people that democracy rules ultimately. Those who are in power must respect the campaign of national interest," VHP's chief spokesperson Veereshwar Dwivedi told reporters.
Terming RSS as an "ultra patriotic" organisation, Dwivedi said that the RSS has been advocating nationalism and those who malign its image only shows their poor mentality.
When asked about Congress leader Digvijay Singh's comments on BJP, RSS and Ramdev, he said, "We feel pity for his mental status."
