Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar on Friday said that yoga guru Ramdev's proposed hunger strike against corruption is well within his democratic rights.

"Anybody or any organisation has the democratic right to protest and put forward their views," was the cryptic reply of Kumar when mediamen sought his comment on the proposed stir.

Reiterating the firm resolve of his government to root out corruption, Kumar said the prevention of corruption act had come into force in Bihar.

"Corruption at any level won't be tolerated... We have framed laws for confiscating the properties of corrupt public servants disproportionate to their known sources of income," he said.

"We will be consistent in our approach to end corruption," he said.
