Spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravishankar said he would not campaign against any political parties on corruption issues in the five poll-bound states.

"I will not campaign against any political party on the corruption issues in the five poll-bound states. It is the job of the political parties to campaign in the polls and not for us to do so," he told reporters after presiding over a spiritual programme here yesterday.

Ravishankar, however, said that he would support the anti-corruption movement by the people.

The spiritual guru and Art of Living founder also trashed Congress leader Digvijay Singh's reported remarks branding him a Sangh Parivar sympathiser on the basis of the former being seen with RSS leaders in a photograph.

"It may be his views that anybody being seen with the RSS leaders could be their man," Ravishankar said.
