Himachal Pradesh Congress is demanding to cancel an allotment of 96 bighas land at Sadhupul on the Kandaghat-Chail road made by the state government to Baba Ramdev’s aide Acharya Balkrishna. Last year the BJP Himachal government had leased land for 99 years for just Rs 17, 31,214 to the Patanjali Yogpeeth Trust that shows that Swami Ramdev has indeed benefited from the largesse of the BJP government.

Himachal Pradesh Congress Committee president Kaul Singh Thakur said: “Allotting land to Baba Ramdev at throwaway prices is totally wrong. The (BJP) government should explain the reasons for this.”
