This is why countrymen follow Narendra Modi. He tells his 'Mann ki Baat' and people accept it," Naidu said, adding that the Prime Minister's call for 'Swachch Bharat' has become a "people's movement"

The Union Urban Development Minister was speaking at a yoga event, presided over by Ramdev, at Rajpath in New Delhi. 

Terming Ramdev as a "real sage", Naidu said his imparting lessons to the younger generation on the ancient practices is not a small thing.

"Wherever I went with him, people want to learn yoga. He is like a rishi. Like a saint. He has nothing to gain personally. But he is giving everything to people. That is why I call him a real sage. 

"What our ancestors learnt in the ancient time, the Vedic time and what we inherited...the Indian culture, Hindu lifestyle, taking this to the new generation is not a small thing," Naidu said. 

The senior BJP leader, while moving the political resolution at the party National Executive, had described Modi as "God's gift for India" and a "messiah of poor".
