Baba ‘Black Money’ Ramdev caught on tape talking money with BJP candidate.
In an embarrassment for Ramdev, the Yoga Guru was caught on tv camera murmuring to BJP candidate Mahant Chandnath not to talk about money when mics are on after the latter told him that he was running short of money during electioneering in Alwar constituency.
The conversation which took place moments before the start of a press conference here, got recorded as the mics were on.
Moments before Chandnath’s press conference could start, in front of a bunch of cameras and microphones, Chandnath mentioned to Baba Ramdev that “paise le aane mein badi dikat ho rahi hai” (Facing problems bringing money here) and almost immediately, Baba Ramdev shut him up saying, “yahan baat karna bandh karo, bhole ho kya? (Stop talking here; are you a fool?)
For which Chandnath, BJP candidate from Alwar constituency, realised this and smiled.
Baba Ramdev, an avid supporter of Narendra Modi, has been one of most vocal campaigners against black money in the past two years.
