 Baba Ramdev takes a 'Bhishma pratigya', and it's about politics Ramdev says he doesn't harbor any political ambition. File photo

New Delhi: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev has taken a vow to not take a political position ever in his life, and says he doesn't harbor a dream to have a political career.

"For me, politics is rashtriya dharam (service for the nation) because we will save ourself by serving the nation. I have said this before as well that I will never take a political position. This is my Bhishma pratigya (oath)," Baba Ramdev said here on Wednesday at the launch of TV series "Swami Ramdev: Ek Sangharsh".

"I want my country to be safe. I have no political dreams otherwise. I want to spend my whole life in the service of the nation. There was no motive to attain something in the past, and there is none at the moment too."

"Swami Ramdev: Ek Sangharsh" will narrate the life of Baba Ramdev from his childhood to where he is now, with focus on his struggles and his personal life. The show will go on air on February 12 on Discovery JEET.

On the show, he said: "I want people of the country, including children from every street of the nation, to learn something from a 'fakir' like me. There is a message that God has made everyone equal and given them the power to move ahead without any prejudice.

"Everyone can be great and we all can make the country great together. I want people to take inspiration from the story. I want people to look at my struggle and get motivated."

Baba Ramdev also said there will be a special screening of the show at Delhi's Chhatrasal Stadium on February 10.

"I conducted my biggest camp at the stadium, and we will have the screening in presence of many political figures as well as people from our Patanjali family."

The screening is likely to be attended by Rajnath Singh, Arun Jaitley and Amit Sha.

Produced by Ajay Devgn FFilms and Watergate Production, "Swami Ramdev: Ek Sangharsh" will feature National Award winning child artist Naman Jain as the younger version Baba Ramdev and then Kranti Prakash Jha will take over to essay role of the yoga guru.
