Rajkot:Yoga guru Swami Ramdev on Tuesday  came down heavily against Union home minister P Chidambaram's recent remark on saffron terror saying it was 'shameful' that it came from home minister of the country.  

"Saffron colour is symbol of humanism and spirituality. The remark that came from union home minister is shameful", he said. The home minister should concentrate on taking strict action against Maoist, tackle naxalism and terrorism and refrain from making such remarks, he added.  

Emphasising the need to bring about changes in the existing laws in the country, Swami Ramdev said corruption should attract death sentence.  

Corruption has spread from top to bottom in Indian administration. It can be curbed only if the law is made stricter, he said, adding that if the guilty are not punished strictly, there would be no deterrence. Baba Ramdev was here for his "Bharat Nirman Yatra" that started from Dwarka on September 3.  

Terming his yatra as non-political movement, Ramdev said the object of the yatra is to create awareness among the people about issues like corruption, black money and to spread message of importance of education. The yatra will cover more than 600 districts of the country and move over one lakhs kms, he said. PTI
