Leader of opposition in Bihar Abdul Bari Siddiqui on Friday suggested Anna Hazare and his aides to launch a movement against corruption from the state.
"I request Annaji to visit Bihar and if he finds the Nitish Kumar government neck-deep in corruption, he should launch a movement against corruption from the state," Siddiqui said in a letter to the Gandhian activist.
Rampant corruption prevails in several welfare programmes in Bihar, he alleged.
Siddiqui referred to the recent controversy over the allotment of plots by Bihar Industrial Area Authority (BIADA) to bureaucrats, relatives of ministers, besides MPs and MLAs, and the issue related to non-reconciliation of AC/DC bills highlighted by the CAG in its report for the period which ended on March 31, 2010.
"The country is fed up with rampant corruption ... We know that you have nothing to do with political parties ... We see a reflection of late Jayaprakash Narayan in your image," the RJD leader said.
