Patna: Appealing to Anna Hazare to end his
fast, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Saturday said corruption
had turned into a "game" in the hands of the people which they
will not tolerate.

"Corruption is now game in the hands of people who are
not prepared to tolerate it anymore," Kumar said.

"We want that a solution is worked out and Anna ends his
fast," he said replying to a question at Indira Awas
Distribution function in Danapur, on the outskirts of the
state capital.

Stating that he had strongly opposed the action when Anna
was arrested and was stopped from launching his fast at J P
Park in New Delhi, Kumar said the NDA has placed its views and
a solution is likely to evolve.

"Parliament is holding debate today and in principle,
there is an agreement with Anna on the issue of corruption,"
he said.

Advocating for a strong and effective Lokpal, Kumar
slammed the Congress for its "dilly-dallying" attitude towards
the issue of corruption.

"In fact, I have no faith in the Congress and its leaders
as they say something now only to change it later in
accordance with the demand of time," he said.
