Ramdev observes ' maun vrat' as NaMo takes oath.

BESIDES A FEW chief ministers, yoga guru Baba Ramdev also skipped the oath- taking ceremony of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday.

Ramdev had campaigned for the BJP in the Lok Sabha elections. The exact reason behind his absence from the grand ceremony is not yet known.

Sources said that the yoga guru "was mentally hurt" and observed maun vrat on Monday in his Hardwar ashram.

His close aide Acharya Balkrishna attended the ceremony held at the Rashtrapati Bhawan in New Delhi. "Yes, Babaji is in Hardwar and observing maun vrat . We can't disclose his exact location," ashram sources said.

Earlier, Patanjali Yogpeet -- Baba Ramdev's ashram -- had claimed that two dozen followers of the yoga guru would go to New Delhi for the swearing- in ceremony. "But, something went wrong at the last minute," sources said.
