Haridwar: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and yoga guru Baba Ramdev are set to share the stage at Haridwar. The Gujarat Chief Minister is in Haridwar to inaugurate Ramdev's new school 'Acharya Kulam'.
This is a vedic-cum-modern education centre near Patanjali Yog Vidyapith in Haridwar. Many spiritual leaders and followers are also expected to attend the function.
This comes days after Ramdev had backed Modi as a Prime Ministerial candidate. Ramdev had described the Gujarat Chief Minister as a symbol of development and good governance and asked people to support him.
"Modi is a symbol of development and good governance and people have a lot of expectations from him. He is a good leader and the people should support such a leader," Ramdev had said.
Ramdev, who earlier had urged the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to change its priorities and project Modi as its leader in the next Lok Sabha elections, had said he would not take the political plunge but would continue working to bring political change in the country.
