Ramdev blames media for controversial remark on MPs

Yoga guru Baba Ramdev today said here that he never described all the MPs as thugs. "It was the media which distorted my statement," said Ramdev, who is on a two-day visit to the city.

His recent statement that MPs were dacoits had created a furore, but he later said that he did not mean all the MPs. Saying that the country was facing a serious "crisis", he said here that even the Army Chief General V K Singh had said that Army lacked proper equipment.

Talking about Maoists, he said their demands may have merit, but the manner in which they go about to get them fulfilled was undesirable. The ultras, he said, should forsake violence and take recourse to Constitutional ways.
