Expressing his respect for Baba Ramdev, BJP President Nitin Gadkari sought not to comment after the Yoga guru floated a political outfit.

"In the democratic set up everyone has a right to float his own political party. Ramdev is a great personality who has spread benefits of Yoga across the world," Gadkari told reporters on Thursday . 

Gadkari, who is in Goa for the first time after taking over as party's chief, said that he has huge respect for Baba Ramdev and his thoughts.

When asked whether he had requested Ramdev not to float political party in order to avoid splitting of votes (Hindus), Gadkari offered no comments.  Responding to a question on Ramdev's demand to recall currency to stop blackmoney, Gadkari said that BJP in its election manifesto had assured to get back money from Swiss bank, if voted to power.  "During my meeting with Baba Ramdev, we have exchanged several views and he has spoken to me whole-heartedly about how to get back ill-wealth," BJP chief said.
