Mamata Banerjee Kolkata, June 17 (IANS) A day after terming her support for A.P.J. Abdul Kalam for the president’s post as the “voice of millions of Indians”, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Sunday appealed on Facebook to the youth to raise their voices against graft.

In a post on the social networking site, she urged the youth to oppose corruption and back-room dealings as these had eroded the values of Indian politics.

Banerjee Saturday logged onto Facebook and appealed to users to come out in support of a second term for former president Kalam in Rashtrapati Bhavan.

“Thank you all for your overwhelming response, in such a short span of time, for this great cause of nation…I am sure this united voice will take public issues to the next level,” Banerjee posted on her official Facebook page.

The Trinamool Congress supremo gave a call to the youth to raise their voice in the fight against corruption, back-room deal making, machiavellian manipulations and machinations.

“It is most unfortunate that politics in our great nation has become murky and values, public interest have been compromised through the use of money, power and scams. Ethical and principled politics has eroded today,” the post stated.

She said that the decay in the values of Indian politics needed to be reversed at all costs.
