Former Vice President Bhairon Singh Shekhawat, who has created ripples by demanding a probe into graft charges against the previous Vasundhara Raje government, on Saturday vowed not to sit idle and take his anti-corruption campaign across the country.

Shekhawat visited Meenawas, Kaparda, Karania and other villages in Jodhpur and Pali district and asked people to fight corruption.

"I would not sit idle and would initiate efforts to eradicate corruption from the grass-root level and would ferry to various parts of the country to run my mission," Shekhawat said.

The former Vice-President had, on Thursday, said that he had written a letter to Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot to investigate corruption charges to the tune of Rs 22,000 crore against the Vasundhara Raje regime in the state. Shekhawat also visited Sati temple in Jodhpur and participated in a function organised by the Jain community in Jetaran in Pali district before heading towards Beawar in Ajmer district.
