Sri Sri Ravishankar backs Ramdev's campaign

NEW DELHI: Spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravishankar Thursday extended his support to yoga guru Baba Ramdev's indefinite fast against illegal wealth stashed in foreign banks, saying "all are together in the fight against corruption".

"We are all together in this cause ... may be our working style is little different but we are all together. I am not going on fast because it will have more international impact. I don't want these things to go beyond Indian borders," Ravishankar told Times Now.
"People all over the world are getting upset over corruption ... I am keeping low profile, but I am supporting the cause. We all are together," he said.
The spiritual guru said the government should immediately take action against those involved in corruption.
"They have to take this thing seriously, you know, corruption and the black money issue have been in news for last one year but nothing much is happening. It is not moving ahead, so I think it is essential to hurry this thing," he added.
