The Indian Premier League (IPL) is nothing but an array of corruption and graft, yoga guru Baba Ramdev said here today.

"Huge black money is being invested in it," he said adding "this is a black game now".

"It is a token of debauchery," Ramdev told people at his roadshow here.

"This vicious circle shall be brought to an end for the sake of the country. There is loot all around."

The yoga master said "if the electorate send about 300 honest MPs to Parliament, the country will get rid of many evils.

"Some of the MPs are very honest and upright but more clean politicians are required to be there in the highest panchayat of the nation," he said.

"The stashed money should be brought back to the country. This money can solve all problems of the country. Even naxalism will come to an end because Maoists are using the same black money to buy weapons."
