Cong wants Hazare to campaign against UP govt

Lucknow: Alleging that Uttar Pradesh is the most corrupt of all states, the Congress on Tuesday asked social activist Anna Hazare to start a movement from the state if he wanted to start a state-based campaign.

"UP is having the most corrupt system with maximum cases of human rights violation, if Hazare wants to start any such movement he should start it from here," UPPCC president Rita Bahuguna Joshi said in a reply to a question.

The answer came in reply to a question if the Congress would invite Anna Hazare to launch a campaign against corruption in UP.

Joshi said that Hazare`s campaign has made it clear that the civil society is rising against corruption which is a good sign.
