BJP should explain how it will address black money

Yoga guru Baba Ramdev has declared that his support to the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate, Narendra Modi, is “conditional” and “issue-based.”

Talking to journalists here on Saturday, he wanted to know what economic policies, especially those in respect of unearthing black money stashed away in foreign banks, would be followed by the BJP if it won the general election and how Mr. Modi would work to declare it a national asset. “The Congress was the first party that I approached, but it betrayed me. Now, I am being cautious. I want to know what the BJP’s and Mr. Modi’s policies will be. I have invited the BJP leadership and Mr. Modi to a rally scheduled at Talkatora for Sunday and explain what effective policies have they planned to address the issues such as black money,” he said.
