According to the footage being shown on various news channels, Yogi said to Ramdev, "We are facing a lot of problems in bringing money from anywhere...."
Ramdev while interrupting Chandnath said, "Do not speak about this issue (money) here. Aap bawle ho kya (Are you an idiot?)"
According to various media reports, only on Ramdev's insistence Chandnath has got election ticket from BJP. He is contesting elections against the Congress's Union minister Jitendra Singh.
Later when media tried to get explanation of Ramdev about the money transaction, the yoga guru left the venue without answering any of the questions. Chandnath also denied that he was talking about any money transaction and blamed media for creating unnecessary mess.
Meanwhile, the Congress has demanded arrest of Ramdev and Chandnath for allegedly distributing money to voters.
In a communication to the Election Commission, K C Mittal, Secretary of AICC Legal Department, demanded that FIR be registered against the leaders involved in the malpractice and Chandnath should be disqualified from contesting the election, as reported by Zee news.
