Baba Ramdev, Ram Jethmalani support Modi for PM

New Delhi, July 11 (ANI): Yoga guru, Baba Ramdev and former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) member Ram Jethmalani on Thursday backed Gujarat chief Minister, Narendra Modi for the post of Prime Minister.

Speaking to media, after meeting Jethmalani in here, Baba Ramdev said Modi is the only person who can fight the demons of the Congress Party.

"All these demons that are currently in the Congress Party, and, only one man has the guts and willpower to fight them, and that man is Narendra Modi. That is why we will work towards the victory of Modi and the people of this country will make him the Prime Minister," said Baba Ramdev.

Jethmalani, who was recently expelled from the BJP, also voiced support for Modi.

"I have always said this that it is in the interest of this country that Narendra Modi becomes Prime Minister and the reason for that being that I believe that he is the final solution of the country's problems," said Jethmalani.

Modi is praised by both corporate India and a majority of voters in Gujarat for presiding over years of fast growth and clean governance in his state, but his record has been harmed by Godhra riots eleven years ago.

In December 2012, he won a fourth consecutive term in office, and since then, many in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have called for him to lead the party in the 2014 general elections. (ANI)
