Gadkari in Himachal, to address poll rallies
Shimla: BJP president Nitin Gadkari, who is facing flak over the affairs of his company, on Saturday arrived in the poll-bound state to address election rallies, a day after his party expressed its unanimous support to his continuance in office.
Gadkari arrived at Jubbarhatti airport, 22-Km from here, and flew to Rekong Peo in tribal Kinnaur district to address the election rally.
The BJP did not arrange any meeting of Gadkari with the press. Party general secretary JP Nadda said that he would meet the press on October 30 during his next visit to Shimla.
BJP had last night set at rest speculation about the fate of Gadkari by expressing its unanimous support to his continuance in office and dismissed media reports of his impending resignation as "baseless and untrue".
"Since Nitin Gadkari has himself offered to face any inquiry, the unanimous view of the party is that it is solidly behind him. All media speculation about his resignation are baseless and untrue," BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar had said.
Sources said though RSS has made it clear that it has nothing to do with the allegations over the corporate dealings of any individual and wants an impartial probe as well as punishment to the guilty, there should be no trial by the media.
The Purti Group company, with which Gadkari is associated and over which there are allegations of dubious funding, also issued a statement that it has been complying with requirements of laws from time to time and expected a fair inquiry by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs.
