Bangalore: Former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda on Thursday said that he supported the indefinite fast undertaken by social activist Anna Hazare for a stronger anti-corruption law.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh should immediately convene a meeting of all political party leaders to debate the issue, he told reporters here. Gowda, whose party has been waging a battle against the BJP government led by Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa over its alleged corrupt acts, said he would undertake a campaign across the state after by-polls to three assembly constituencies ended.

By-polls to Chennapatna, Jagalur and Bangarpet seat would be held on April nine.

BJP has been adopting double standards over corruption in its government in Karnataka, he alleged and demanded that the saffron party spell out its mind over the issue.
