Mumbai: Yoga Guru Ramdev on Wednesday said that Congress is out of power as Nehru and Indira Gandhi's heirs did not 'honour' Yoga. Talking to reporters in Mumbai, Ramdev said that those who do yoga are 'directly blessed by god'. He further said that the government will do good on issues such as Article 370 and triple talaq under the leadership of PM Narendra Modi. 

Modi is the first prime minister who performs yoga among people... This has given 'gaurav' (prestige) to it. Isse pehle luke chhupe yog karte the Indira Gandhi ji aur Nehru ji (earlier, prime ministers Indira Gandhi and Nehru performed yoga secretly)," he said. Ramdev will be attending the Yoga Day event in Nanded in Maharashtra on June 21. 

"But their (Nehru-Gandhi family's) subsequent generations perhaps did not honour yoga. Is liye unke raj-yog mein bhi thoda sa gadbad ho gaya (hence political power eluded them)," he further said.

"I have confidence that under the leadership of Modi and Amit Shah, big work will be done on Article 370, 35A (which give special status of Jammu and Kashmir), one nation-one-law, one-nation-one-election and triple talaq. Because those who are yogi think well of all," Ramdev said adding that those who perform Yoga are blessed by god. Ramdev further said that Yoga is 'beyond politics, caste, faith and religions' and added that it is 'rashtra dharma (national religion)'.

Maharashtra minister Ashish Shelar who accompanied Ramdev said that the government will be organising Yoga Day events in 322 tehsils.
