Brinda Karat, Member of the Polit Bureau of Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:

In his references to Rahul Gandhi, Ramdev, a self declared “baba”, has made
uncivilized statements that demean and insult dalit women. He should be
prosecuted under the SC/ST Act. The Election Commission should also take suo
moto notice of his outrageous comments and take appropriate action.
