RAMDEV PRAISES SHINDE
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)”.
