No need for new law to fight corruption: Swamy
Swamy said the government should strongly implement the existing laws and act against those involved in corruption.

Mathura: As Anna Hazare gears up for yet another protest fast against the government's "weak" Lokpal Bill, Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy on Saturday advocated the need to strengthen the existing laws to tackle corruption instead of introducing a new legislation to combat the menace.

"Anna Hazare is demanding a new law to fight corruption, but what is required is to strengthen the existing laws, as they are strong enough to fight corruption," Swamy said in a conference in Mathura.

He said the government should strongly implement the existing laws and take swift action against those involved in corruption.

"Corruption is an issue of concern in the US also, but the difference is that quick action is taken against the accused there, but in India even after a court verdict, it takes years to solve a case," he said.
