Kanpur: Union Minister Jitin Prasada on Saturday asked social activist Anna Hazare to launch another campaign in Uttar Pradesh against the "corrupt" Mayawati government.

"This government is not concerned about its people and is putting all its efforts in making statues and parks. Where is all the money that it is getting from the Centre and people of the state have the right to know where the money is being spent," said Prasada.

Asked about senior Congress Digvijay Singh's statement that the party would support Hazare if he comes to UP for a campaign against corruption, Prasada said "the state government is deeply involved in corruption and Congress will for sure support him if comes to the state".

"Here in the state, Anna's movement would face a government which is least bothered about the people. There is no electricity no water and Mayawati government is focused on making statues," the Minister alleged.

Prasada, who along with Coal Minister Sriprakash Jaiswal, was here to inaugurate a 720 meter bridge on Ganga, alleged that the state government is not extending support to the Centre on development issues.

"If UP government gives its support, then we would make the roads of the state like Mahrashtra has," said Prasada.
