Senior BJP leaders, who sat in dharna all-night at Rajghat, went to meet President Pratibha Patil this morning about the action taken by the government against yoga teacher Baba Ramdev and the 65,000 followers who attended his fast against corruption on Saturday.

"The image of this government is that of the most corrupt government in Independent India," said Mr Advani after his session with the President.  His party has asked the President to convene a special session of parliament to discuss the crisis that has arisen from the confrontation between the government on one hand and civil society activists including Baba Ramdev on the other.  Mr Advani said he suggested to the President that a "joint parliamentary committee be set up to explore issues of corruption."  (Read: Memorandum submitted by NDA leaders to President)
