Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, Friday said his party "is serious about fighting corruption" and urged the opposition to help the government pass the anti-graft bills pending in parliament. "The Lokpal bill is one step. If we want to fight corruption, we need a framework not only at the national level but at the state level," he said. Parliament recently passed the historic Lokpal bill amid din to deal with corruption in high places in the winter session which ended Dec 18. Corruption charges against the UPA government in the past years and high price rise were listed as reasons behind the Congress rout in recent assembly polls.
