New Delhi: Ramon Magsaysay award winner Sanjeev Chaturvedi on Wednesday accused the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) of not backing his campaign against corruption in Haryana and the AIIMS.

"PMO didn't support (my) fight against corruption," bureaucrat Chaturvedi told NDTV, soon after the Magsaysay Foundation announced that he and social activist and fellow Indian Anshu Gupta were among the winners of the 2015 awards.

"Zero tolerance should be against corruption, not honest officers," added Chaturvedi, who earlier worked at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences here.

"All kind of lies were spread against me when I was fighting corruption in AIIMS and Haryana," he said.

"My mistake was (that) while fighting graft, I took (Prime Minister Narendra Modi's) 'Na Khaunga Na Khane Dunga' slogan at face value," said Chaturvedi.
