Mumbai: Accusing the anti-graft crusader
Anna Hazare of having a political agenda, Congress general
secretary Digvijay Singh on Sunday said his party was committed to
enacting a strong and effective Lokpal Bill.

"Anna`s agenda is political. He can`t see corruption in
Karnataka," Singh told reporters here.

He accused Team Anna members of indulging in corruption,
even as Hazare sat on fasts over the issue.

"Anna ke team wale Anna ko bhuka rakhte hai aur khud maal
khate hain (Anna`s team members keep Anna hungry, while
themselves indulging in corruption)," he charged.

The Congress leader felt only a Lokpal bill was not
enough to fight corruption.

"In states where Lokayukta has been enacted, has
corruption ended? Only Lokpal is not enough to fight
corruption, what we require is a comprehensive strategy," he
said.

On Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati`s demand of
quota for Muslims, Singh said the UPA government has already
decided to provide reservation to the community from the 27
per cent OBC quota.
