Former Army Chief V K Singh today said there was a need for thorough probe into the allegations made by IAC activist Arvind Kejriwal with regard to corruption.
"Kejriwal is levelling allegations of corruption because there are evidences to support them," Singh told reporters but refused to be part of IAC.
"Loknayak Jayprakash Narayan had not joined any party. He had moved ahead alone to fight corruption and people rallied behind him which resulted in a people's movement in 1974," he said in reply to a question whether he was interested in joining any political party.
"I will tell you about my next step later," the former Army Chief said, adding he would, however, support any campaign against corruption.
He said he was now working among farmers, youth and jawans to help create a 'janjagran' (peoples movement) against corruption.
Singh was here en route to Ara where he would participate in 'Jawan Kisan Morcha' later in the day.
