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
