Bihar Deputy Chief Minister S K Modi today lent his full support to eminent social worker Anna Hazare and other activists in their ongoing campaign for a comprehensive Lokpal bill for weeding out corruption.
"I have full personal support to Maharashtra's eminent social activist Anna Hazare and other activists for a comprehensive Lokpal bill for uprooting corruption," Modi told reporters on the sidelines of his 'Janata Darbar' programme.
Stressing that the social activists had prominently raised their voice against corruption, Modi said the Centre should seriously consider their view and act swiftly instead of "taking it as a prestige issue."
Referring to 2G spectrum scam, he said, "Several layers of corruption involving the issue had surfaced and the UPA government should take it seriously."
He said the NDA government was firm in its resolve to uproot corruption at all levels in Bihar.
The 72-year-old Hazare today began his fast unto death demanding enactment of a comprehensive law like the Jan Lokpal Bill to tackle corruption.
