New Delhi: Anshuman Mishra, who has levelled
certain allegations against BJP leaders after the party backed
out of supporting him for Rajya Sabha seat from Jharkhand,

The NRI businessman apologised to L K Advani, M M Joshi,
Nitin Gadkari, Yashwant Sinha and Arun Jaitley hours after
Jaitley served a legal notice on him.

public retraction" of his comments made against leaders like
Joshi, Sinha, Jaitley and some others.
He also offered his "sincerest apologies" to Advani and
Mishra, who had filed his nomination papers for Rajya
Sabha seat from Jharkhand with backing by a section of BJP
before the party made a U-turn, said he accepted "the fact
that he had no significant association/relationship with BJP."
Sinha had raised a banner of revolt after he found that
the party was supporting Mishra, an outsider, for the seat
instead of nominating someone from BJP.
He raised the issue with Advani and subsequently, the BJP
decided not to support Mishra.
In the statement, Mishra said he would not like to be
associated with "negative emotions like - anger and
bitterness" and it was "high time to move on and focus on

respect his private space even as he praised it along with
BJP`s Jharkhand unit.
