Less than 24-hours after saying that Bharatiya Janata Party’s Narendra Modi is in a hurry to become the Prime Minister, Yoga guru Ramdev denied making any allegations. He in fact, blamed the media for spreading false reports. “I have not made any comment about Modi being in a hurry to become PM. This is a wrong allegation made by the media,” he clarified.

Ramdev had on Sunday, voiced his strong objection to some of the candidates being fielded by the BJP and its allies and had warmed that he would support the party only if they cleaned up their act. “BJP is overenthusiastic about winning the general elections this time,” Ramdev said adding that it needed to be patient and that there was resentment within the party due to “announcement of candidature of some persons”.

The yoga guru had also said his support to the saffron party and its prime ministerial candidate was based on specific issues. However, he said he was confident that NDA would get an absolute majority, and stated that there was no alternative to Modi now.

“The people were fed up with misrule, corruption and anarchy of the Congress-led UPA government,” he had said.
