In a signed column for a leading Bengali newspaper today, Babul Supriyo has disclosed that on February 28 he found himself sitting next to the yoga guru on a flight and overheard him discussing ticket distribution with somebody.

According to Suprio, he told the yoga guru jocularly, “Baba I also want a ticket. And if you do not give it, I will tell the media how you are giving tickets to people.”​

According to Supriyo, Baba Ramdev was taken aback and he asked his personal secretary to take down the number of the Bollywood singer.

On March 1, Supriyo got a call from a person who identified himself as Rakesh, a pracharak of the RSS.

Rakesh told Babul Suriyo,“Baba has told us about you. How much money will you be able to spend? The limit is Rs 70 lakh but some people spend more than that.”

A surprised Supriyo told Rakesh, “I love Modiji and that is why I want to contest.”
