MUMBAI - Indian former army chief General (retired) VK Singh on Monday called for the dissolution of Parliament, which he described as an edifice of corruption.

Calling for immediate elections, General (retired) Singh accused the present UPA-II regime of raising prices, promoting corruption, failing to bring back black money, and acquiring land from weaker sections of society by force or skullduggery.

Addressing a joint press conference with anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare, General (retired) Singh claimed the citizens of the country are disappointed. "Due to increasing corruption, unemployment and rising prices people have lost faith in the government."

Terming the Centre as anti-people, he said the government is favouring the corporate world.–Monitoring
