Social activist Anna Hazare got support from unexpected quarters on
Wednesday as UP chief minister Mayawati declared her endorsement for
Anna's crusade against corruption.

"Our party and state government is completely against corruption and
criminalisation of politics from the very beginning," the BSP chief
said in statement released here on Wednesday.

Mayawati secured the resignation of the minister of state for animal
husbandry Awadh Pal Singh Yadav whom the UP Lokayukta has found guilty
on severe charges of corruption.

Lok Ayukta NK Mehrotra had submitted his report on as many as 18 cases
of corruption against the minister and recommended his removal from
the ministry only on Monday.

With Yadav's resignation some other ministers have also become wary of
their future.
