Swami Ramdev:"I am being portrayed as a criminal. I am a victim of political conspiracy."
TIMELINEClarifying his position to the media on the recent allegation of abduction of a youth, Ramdev said: "A worker at Patanjali Yog Peeth was caught red-handed stealing nearly R30 lakh. He was detained at the ashram by the security personnel and later handed over to the local police. It is unfortunate that our rivals, instigated by some political leaders at the Centre, projected the whole incident in a negative manner and the media also reported it like a case of kidnapping. It is another case to defame me."
"They are trying to infiltrate sex workers into the ashram, they will be then caught and people will say Ramdev is a sex offender."
