A video of self-styled yoga guru Baba Ramdev is viral on social media. In the viral video, a group of people can be seen protesting against Baba Ramdev outside an airport. It is being claimed that recently slogans were raised against Ramdev in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, due to which he had to return from the airport.
While sharing this video, a Facebook user wrote a caption in Hindi which reads, "जोधपुर (राजस्थान) में लाला रामदेव के खिलाफ नारे लगे... एयरपोर्ट से ही बैरंग वापस लौटना पड़ा.! गनीमत है कि कल तो नारे, आगे लाला को जूते पड़ने की प्रबल संभावना दिख रही है.! जनता जान चुकी है कि देश का दुश्मन है ये लाल कपड़ों वाला ढोंगी स्वामी."
[English Translation: Slogans were raised against Lala Ramdev in Jodhpur (Rajasthan). He had to return from the airport. Fortunately, yesterday only slogans were raised; there is a strong possibility of Lala getting shoes ahead! The public now knows that the enemies of this country are these red-clothed hypocrite lords.]
