KOLKATA: Pakistani politician Imran Khan Monday said that Anna Hazare's crusade against corruption would be more effective if the Gandhian joins politics. "If Anna Hazare forms a party and captures power, then he will be far more effective in fighting corruption," Khan said here. "You can

be the most powerful pressure group, but if the government doesn't have the political will to fight corruption, then you can have any legislation you want to but eventually they will be implemented by the government."

Giving the example of Pakistan, the former cricketer said that its Supreme Court was fighting corruption but the government stalled the moves.

"We have an independent Supreme Court which is the best in fighting corruption, but we have a government which is totally inactive and is stalling the Supreme Court. It attacks the court to protect itself," he said adding there is no shortcut in fighting corruption.

"So eventually, there is no short cut. Wherever corruption has been reduced to a manageable level, all have been by a determined government with a political will," Khan said.
