By announcing his plan to stand up with armed forces, Ramdev Baba is actually standing up against the country. It is less important here which party, left or right, saffron or green or red, is in the power. Ramdev Baba is not going to oppose the UPA Government, but on a larger scale he is going the challenge the state system. He is challenging the sovereignty of India and its administrative model by attempting to be the power hub and manipulating armed rebellions, with no basic difference from what the Maoists and the terrorists in Kashmir and elsewhere are doing.
If Ramdev Baba proceeds to build his infantry, let him do that; the Govt. of India is not feeble enough to be moved by that. The state will legally handle him and should also kill him if he ever dares to do so. If he wants to die unto fast, let him; an independent sovereign democratic country never stops nor stoops for one man.
