"I want to request Mayawati that she should at least once support us in our fight against corruption against so many scams such as the 2G, CWG, there is issue of airport land and Coalgate," BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters here.
"I just want to say that Mayawati should come in our support in fight against the corruption in the UPA regime," Prasad said.
He said, "The fight for social justice will continue and it must go on".
