Kolkata: Social activist Swami Agnivesh,
as part of a citizen`s forum, is planning to move court in
public interest against alleged corruption in the UPA
government.

An FIR has been lodged with the Parliament Street
police station, but it was yet to be registered, Agnivesh told
reporters.

"We don`t have any agency to work against corruption,
since the CBI is not allowed by the Centre to work
independently and the CVC has no power at all," he claimed.

"Many eminent personalities and celebrities had
supported the proposal," Agnivesh said.
