    An Indian yogi who is a television favorite among India’s democratic masses was detained Monday along with thousands of fellow protesters as they marched to the country’s Parliament to demand greater government transparency. “Throw out the Congress; save the country,” the bearded and robed Baba Ramdev shouted as police led him away. “The government has become completely deaf.

Ramdev has asked for an end to government corruption and a turnover in political leadership.
