Union Law Minister Veerappa Moily Saturday said the “government is not engaged in any backdoor talks” with yoga guru Baba Ramdev on the eighth day of his anti-corruption fast. “There is no backdoor or open door talks with anyone,” Moily told reporters here. Sri Sri Ravishankar spoke to me from Berlin and also upon his return to the country and asked me what is happening. He expressed his concern over what is happening and said he would speak to Ramdev,” Moily said in response to a statement issued Friday. The statement said: “Moily called Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and he (Moily) is in touch with the PM (prime minister) regarding Baba Ramdev’s fast. We are hopeful that the deadlock will end by tomorrow.” “Sri Sri asked me whether he can cite my name during talks with Ramdev, to which I agreed,” added Moily. Ramdev was rushed to a Dehradun hospital for treatment after his condition deteriorated on the seventh day of his fast Friday.
