Bareilly (UP): Supporting Anna Hazare's campaign against corruption, BJP MP Maneka Gandhi on Friday said all party MPs should come out in support of the Gandhian as "he is not a person but a thought".

"In my view all the BJP MPs should support Anna Hazare as he is a thought not a person," Maneka said during her visit to flood affected areas.

She said that at a time when corruption is at its peak in politics, everyone should support the cause espoused by Hazare.

Alleging that Congress did not want to get the Jan Lokpal Bill passed, Maneka said that Congressmen had spread rumours that BJP was behind Anna's agitation.

However, she declined to comment when asked about Rahul Gandhi's speech in Parliament.
