An FIR has been lodged against Yoga guru Ramdev for alleged violation of the model code of conduct and prohibitory orders by holding a press meet without the permission of the administration.

Sub Divisional Magistrate Vivek Srivastava said Ramdev addressed a press conference at the residence of a yoga centre coordinator after participating in a ‘yoga diksha’ programme on Saturday.

He said the administration’s permission was not taken to hold the press conference due to which a case has been lodged against Ramdev and the coordinator.

Mr. Srivastava said the information has been sent to the Election Commission.
