Lucknow: Taking a dig at the Centre and the Mayawati-led government in Uttar Pradesh, JD(U) president Sharad Yadav on Tuesday said they are trying to "outdo" each other in the number of scams.

"There is a competition going on between the Centre and the state government..both are trying to outdo each other in the number of scams," Yadav told reporters here on the sidelines of a Chetna Sammelan organised by JD(U)'s youth wing.

Yadav also extended his party's support to senior BJP leader L K Advani's 38-day Jan Chetna Yatra which began today from Sitabdiara in Bihar.

"His yatra against corruption has our support. I will be participating in the yatra in Bihar," he said.

On Digvijay Singh's salvo at Team Anna claiming Hazare was being "led up the garden path" by people who were against "weaker section and reservation," Yadav said, "it isn't right for people to talk beyond a limit."

The JD(U) leader also said that a decision on seat- sharing with its NDA partner BJP for the forthcoming Uttar Pradesh elections would take place soon.
