No need for Anna Hazare to start movement in UP: SP

Anna Hazare
Ballia, April 23: Samajwadi Party today (April 23) said that there was no need for Anna Hazare or the members of civil society to start a movement in Uttar Pradesh as the party is capable of fighting against corruption on its own.

SP is competent to fight against corruption and the party had been doing so from the last four years...there is no need for Hazare or his supporters to launch a movement in the state, Leader of the Opposition Shivpal Yadav told reporters here.

On being asked about party's stand on Lokpal Bill, Yadav said that a decision would be taken when the bill will be tabled in Parliament.

Earlier, SP had requested social activist Hazare to come to UP and raise voice against corruption by the Mayawati led government.

"SP is fighting corruption prevailing in the Mayawati government for the past four years. We request Hazare to come to UP and raise voice against corruption prevailing here," SP state president Akhilesh Yadav had told reporters on April 11.

The Congress too had demanded Hazare to launch a movement in the state.

"The UP government has created records of corruption. We request Gandhian Anna Hazare that like Maharashtra where he did a satyagrah against corruption by ministers, he should do the same in UP," Digvijay had told reporters on Thursday last.

Yadav, when asked about a possibility of alliance with other parties before the UP Assembly elections said that the decision would be taken by the party high command.
