New Delhi, Jan 17: Baba Ramdev on Wednesday hit out at Modi government for imposing high tax on telecasting devotional TV channels like Aastha, Arihant and Vedic.

Speaking at an event to mark the launch of ‘Aastha’ mobile app here, Yog Guru said “the government was demanding 1-1 lakh rupees from all us. To which, we said that please don’t impose tax on sadhus and saints.

“You are religious people, you love your country, you follow religion but we hope to get free from it, because then if people want to hear or see any baba’s discourse live, baba would have to give One Lakh Rupees per day from his own pocket”.

“A baba can’t afford so much of money. The government wants Rs. 32 crore in total to show all the channels like Aastha and Vedic”, he further asserted.

The Patanjali founder also stated that “it would be really shameful, if we would have to give money even in the name of faith and I never expected such kind of behaviour from this government.”

The mobile app is considered to be the first of its kind, which will help users in getting their desired spiritual content. It will include programmes from spiritual TV channels such as Aastha, Arihant and so on.

The content on the app will also be available in various regional languages like Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Oriya, Bangla and Marathi.

Aastha is planing launch its Tamil, Telugu and Malaylam channels soon.

Regarding this Ramdev said that the infrastructure is ready for the channels to go live.
