Ballia: The Uttar Pradesh unit of the BJP
on Tuesday said the anti-graft movement of social activist Anna
Hazare is most relevant in Uttar Pradesh and the party will
support it.

"Hazare`s movement is most relevant in Uttar Pradesh and
the party will back it," state BJP chief Surya Pratap Shahi
said.

Shahi is here to oversee preparations for the proposed
rath yatra of senior party leader LK Advani starting from
Jai Prakash Narain`s native village Sitab Diyara which lies on
UP-Bihar border.

Advani will kick off his anti-corruption yatra from
Sitabdiara village in Bihar`s Saran district on October 11.

The BJP both welcomes and supports Anna`s movement in
Uttar Pradesh, said Shahi.

Attacking BSP, SP and Congress, he said "all these
parties are one on the issue of corruption."

The BJP leader said his party would highlight Mayawati`s
"jungleraj" during the upcoming assembly polls in the state.
