Coming in support of the lokpal bill, RSS on Sunday said that even the Prime Minister and higher judiciary should be brought under the purview of lokpal.

Addressing members of the Sangh in Vijayawada, RSS spokesperson Ram Madhav observed that the lokpal bill is the need of the hour.

"Even the Prime Minister and higher judiciary should be under the purview of lokpal" he said.

Talking about RSS's support to Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdev, he clarified that the organisation was supporting them but not directing them.

Everyone should fight against corruption and so the RSS is supporting the movement led by Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdev. RSS is not directing them but only supporting them and has asked its members and student wings like the ABVP to support all those who have launched movements against corruption.

Maintaining that the RSS never instigates violence, Ram Madhav regretted that the ruling party was branding the RSS members as religious fundamentalists.
