Yoga guru Baba Ramdev believes that in her heart West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee supports demonetisation, although she opposes its implementation."I think she is against the procedure (of implementation), but in her heart, I believe she probably agrees that it is a good (move)," Ramdev said here on Saturday."I praise her because she lives a life of austerity. She wears hawai chappals and leads a simple life in a cottage," Ramdev said at the INFOCOM seminar here.He said demonetisation has made honest people happy."I agree this is creating inconvenience for people, but the country's economy has come back on track. Honest people are happy because the corrupt are being punished.Claiming demonetisation has terminated terror funding, Ramdev said he had "sowed the seeds" of demonetisation in 2009."From 2009 to 2014, I had taken it forward and asked the government to withdraw the high-value notes because they are media for black money and corruption. Now with demonetisation, funding for terror outfits and Naxalites has also stopped," he said.He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should be felicitated for the "historic" move.Taking a dig at former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, he said Singh, who had remained silent on issues, has actually been vocal on demonetisation."This is the effect of demonetisation," he quipped.
