Indore: Congress General Secretary Digvijay
Singh on Monday said BJP president Nitin Gadkari should explain
the growth in his assets over the years.

"Nitin Gadkari should disclose his present assets, and
what was his income fifteen years ago," Singh said here.

He alleged that Gadkari had spent crores of rupees during
his son`s wedding in Nagpur, where "two lakh people had been
invited".

"Let him answer (on the wedding expenses)," Singh said.

After Anna Hazare "took away" the corruption issue,
nobody was interested in listening to BJP leaders talking
about corruption, he said.

Dubbing senior BJP leader LK Advani`s proposed Rath
Yatra against corruption and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra
Modi`s ongoing fast as "political gimmicks", he said BJP had
not acted against or jailed any of its leaders who were facing
corruption charges.

Congress, he said, had not spared any of its leaders
accused of corruption.

Gadkari has been recuperating in Mumbai after undergoing a
bariatric surgery on September 12.
