Hyderabad: Extending total support to the indefinite fast undertaken by Anna Hazare at Delhi against Corruption in public life, Jana Vignana Vedika has demanded the Centre to respond to the struggle and take immediate action to enact Jana Lok pal Legislation.
Addressing the media here today, JVV leaders Mr K R Venugopal, former Secretary to the Prime Minister, Prof. B N Reddy, President and Mr Chukka Ramaiah, MLC, have called upon the people of the State to extend their full support to the struggle aimed at rooting out corruption which was eating away the vitals of the country. They flayed the rulers for keeping mum while scams of great dimensions were coming to light with each passing day.
They said that the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, who has an image as “Mr Clean” is not really clean and this was more than evident from the fact that he was turning a Nelson’s eye towards graft of different Ministers under his nose and encouraging Corporate corruption. In this background, there is urgent need for a stringent Lok Pal Act to put down corruption, they asserted. (NSS)
