New Home Min­is­ter Sushilku­mar Shinde got praise from un­ex­pected quar­ters on Au­gust 13. Hav­ing laid siege at Ramlila Maidan, Baba Ramdev’s sup­port­ers feared an un­cer­e­mo­ni­ous re­moval like the last time when Delhi Po­lice had used force, rain­ing lathis and tear­gas shells. This time around, Ramdev found the po­lice to be much more po­lite. For­mer home min­is­ter P. Chi­dambaram, Ramdev told his sup­port­ers, was “kroor aur aty­achaari (cruel and tor­ment­ing)”, while Shinde is “susheel ( vir­tu­ous)”.
