wearing garland made of thousands of thousand rupee notes at her
rally, yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Tuesday said the money should have
been used for betterment of Dalits and poor.
"Mayawati calls herself Dalit Queen. And look at her! She wears
multi-crore garland at her party rally," Ramdev told reporters here.
"The country's wealth should be used for betterment of Dalits and
poor, and should not to be used as garlands to decorate the neck," he
Meanwhile, the same day (Tuesday), Ramdev launched his own political
party 'Bharat Swabhimaan' and said his candidates will contest all
seats in the next Lok Sabha elections.
Ramdev said he wants to 'cleanse' the system and hence forayed into politics.

organized to mark 25 years of the party.
According to BSP activists, Maya's garland was worth 'quite a few lakhs'.
