New Delhi: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev Saturday accused the Congress of causing a loss of Rs.200 lakh crore in coal blocks allocation and sought resignation of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh over the scam.

“If the PM, who is responsible for corruption worth Rs.200 lakh crore, is honest then who is dishonest,” asked Ramdev in a press conference here.

He also demanded that the licences issued for coal blocks should be cancelled.

Ramdev added that he would launch a campaign from Oct 2 against the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government ahead of the Lok Sabha elections scheduled in 2014.

He told the media that the Congress had created a record in corruption, and now “the government is exposed”.

The yoga guru said he would not join politics. “It’s not our agenda,” he added.

He also alleged that the Congress was trying to defame him, and the UPA government was conspiring against his ashram and trust.
