Yoga expert Ramdev has announced he will organise a door-to-door campaign with the slogan 'Vote for Modi' for NDA prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi in the run up to the 2014 general elections.
"A tea vendor @narendramodi and a villager @yogrishiramdev, together both will change the destiny and the image of the nation," the yoga guru posted on Twitter.

"Corruption exists in all parties. But politicians like Modi, Mamata Banerjee and Naveen Patnaik are not corrupt," Ramdev said at a press conference in Bangalore on Saturday. Ramdev declared that he is likely to get a response on issues regarding agriculture, education and health troubling the 'common man' on 5 January.
According to a report by Times of India, Ramdev lambasted the Congress and the Nehru-Gandhi family at a press conference on Saturday.
"Rahul has become a zero from hero. He hasn't done anything in the past 10 years, what will he do now," he added.
The yoga expert also criticised the new Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, who took an oath at the Ramlila Maidan in the national capital on Saturday.
"Arvind Kejriwal made three mistakes. He didn't stick to his promise of neither lending nor taking support from any party. He went on to take support from the Congress. He also passed comments against Anna Hazare. The day they file an FIR against Sheila Dikshit, the support will end," he pointed out.
