Terming corruption as the biggest problem facing the country, BJP leader L K Advani said it emanated from the ego of the political class.

"Corruption is the biggest problem confronting society. It stems from 'ahankar' (ego) of politicians who think they are all powerful and indispensable, and can do whatever they want," he said on Friday.

The former Deputy Prime Minister was speaking at a function organised in connection with the 95th birthday celebrations of Sindhi spiritual leader Dada J P Vaswani in Pune.

Advani, who spoke in Sindhi, asked politicians to cultivate a spirit of giving and said that corruption can be removed if spiritual quotient in an individual is increased.

Paying tributes to Dada Vaswani, he said his teachings were relevant to present times and lauded the Sadhu Vaswani Mission's work which aimed at increasing spiritual quotient in the society.

Dada Vaswani said the need of the hour is to have men and women of character who worked selflessly for the country.
