Former Army chief V K Singh on Thursday said the government should investigate the allegations made by social activist turned politician Arvind Kejriwal in connection to corruption.
Speaking to reporters, Singh said: "Kejriwal is levelling allegations of corruption because there are evidences to support them."
Singh gave the example of Indian independence activist and political leader Loknayak Jayprakash Narayan and rejected plans to be associated with India Against Corruption (IAC) or joining a political party.
He said: "I am working among farmers, youth and Jawans in order help in creating a 'Janjagran' (people's movement) against corruption."
Singh said he would 'happily' join any campaign against corruption.
He earlier met a delegation of ex-soldiers from Buxar and urged them to join people's movement against corruption.
Singh last month made a bitter attack on the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government and said the Parliament should be immediately dissolved if India was to follow its enshrined welfare state norms.
"Government is against the Constitution. We demand that the Parliament be dissolved and elections held immediately," Singh said here.
Arvind Kejriwal created a storm in the political paradigm of the country when he levelled 'corruption' charges against several political personalities and businessmen including Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Nitin Gadkari.
He "exposed" the business dealings of Gadkari and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra who they alleged benefitted from the Haryana government favours to realty firms like DLF at the expense of farmers whose lands were acquired by force.
