Computer Baba and several other sadhus participated in Maha Yagna organized in Bhopal
In a gigantic yellow marquee in the heart of Madhya Pradesh Bhopal, thousands of sadhus practicing "Hath Yoga" are served as food. Led by "Computer Baba," the self-titled godman and a minister in the previous BJP government in Madhya Pradesh, the sadhus are praying for votes for Congressional candidate Digvijaya Singh. As he faces Pragya Thakur of the BJP, a female monk wearing saffron is called "Sadhvi", the congressional veteran seems to have turned to the spiritual forces as well.
Hath Yoga involves asanas which help in relaxation and breathing control.
The Baba computer, originally Namdas Tyagi, had been named last April by former Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan as one of five ministers charged with a project connected to the Narmada River. Six months later, he gave up and was seen flirting with Congress. In December he was campaigning openly for the party.
"These Sadhus are not for Congress, but against the BJP.All of them refused to run against Digvijaya Singh, so the BJP found a sacrificial lamb in Pragya," Baba said, chanting the slogan "Ram Naam Abki Baar, Badal Ke Rakh of Chowkidar (change thelookout).
The Baba computer and several other sadhus are participating in the Maha Yagna organized in Bhopal on Tuesday.
"The BJP deceived not only the public but also the community of seers. All the sadhus who are with me unanimously say that without a Ram To send there will be no government (Prime Minister Narendra) of Modi again. We are holding the Yagna to secure the victory of Digvijay Singh, "Computer Baba said.
At the & Quot; bid, Digvijaya Singh is seen dressed in white kurta pajamas and sitting on the floor while the sadhus surround him in a semicircle.
Not all Babas really knows what they are doing there. "" We're going as we think it's just a religious function of Computer Baba, we have nothing to do with politics, "said one of the sadhus.
Bhopal will vote in the sixth round of parliamentary elections on May 12. Votes will be counted on May 23.
