Unemployment, poverty, hunger is a blot on Bharat Mata: Ramdev
Agnivesh, who is known for his work against bonded labor, alleged that BJP-affiliated youth groups had accused him of speaking against Hindus. Terming unemployment as a major issue, Ramdev said both Center and states weren't able to do as much as they're supposed to. "Unemployment, poverty, and hunger are a blot on the forehead of Bharat Mata. We're determined to remove it," he said.
