Bhopal: Veteran BJP leader LK Advani said here on Sunday that he was sorely missing support of the former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in the ongoing yatra.

Addressing a public meeting at the Dusshera Maidan, the veteran BJP leader said, "I received support and guidance from Vajpayee during my earlier five yatras. But I am missing it this time. I embarked on this journey only after seeking blessings from him. But there is no doubt that in this yatra, I am missing Vajpayee very much,".

Advani said that since the 2009 Lok Sabha elections he had been stressing on the need to bring back black money stashed away in foreign banks by rich Indians.

As regards the quantum of funds stashed away, he said that though it was not officially revealed, an agency called Global Integrity has estimated it to be nearly Rs 2.5 lakh crore and that figure was also authenticated by the Swiss Bank Association.
