As yoga guru Ramdev raised the pitch against Congress over the issue of black money, United Progressive Alliance ally Samajwadi Party on Monday said it will support anybody who fights for the cause.

"Our party is against black money. Whoever talks about bringing back black money, we will support (him)," SP supreme Mulayam Singh Yadav told reporters outside Parliament House.

He said if black money comes back to the country, it will do good for the nation and its people. "Black money should be come back. It is our own issue. Whoever raises the issue it is good and we support him," he said.

Yadav's comment came as Ramdev decided to take his protest on black money and corruption to Parliament and vowed to oust Congress in the next Lok Sabha polls.

"The issue was raised in the House (Parliament) on Monday", Yadav said while noting that the government has promised to bring back black money stashed away abroad.

The SP leader evaded a reply when asked to comment on Ramdev's claim that UPA is a sinking ship. His party colleague Ram Gopal Yadav took a dig at Bharatiya Janata Party chief Nitin Gadkari and Janata Dal-United leader Sharad Yadav for sharing dias with Ramdev.

"People who don't trust their cadres and feel that they cannot win elections without support of others only do such thing. I will not go to any such stage," he said.
