New Delhi: Dismissing Anna Hazare`s "threats"
on Lokpal issue, RJD chief Lalu Prasad on Friday said that
politicians were more serious on the issue of tackling
corruption than Team Anna.

"We are more serious on corruption than Team Anna. We
have come out from the anti-corruption agitation of
Jayaprakash Narayan. We are committed to eradicate corruption
but no one should be partial.
"Corruption at levels be it in media corporate, NGOs or
real estate sector should be looked into by the Lokpal.
Disproportionate properties of individuals should be taken
over by states and redistributed," Prasad said told reporters
after meeting Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee. LJP chief Ram
Vilas Paswan also accompanied him.

On the issue of blackmoney, the RJD leader said it will
not be unearthed by making new laws. "For this, a movement is
required," he said.

Paswan demanded immediate implementation of
recommendations of Rangnath Mishra Commission report for
improving the lot of minorities and a commission for judicial
services on the lines of those for civil and police services
in the country.
