New Delhi: The BJP on Wednesday hit back at the Arvind Kejriwal-led India Against Corruption for accusing its president Nitin Gadkari of encroaching upon farmers land in Maharashtra.

At a press conference today, Kejriwal accused Gadkari being involved in the Maharashtra irrigation scam.

Senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj said after the IAC press conference, it is clear that Gadkari ji is clean.

“The cadre, the party is behind him,” she added.

Arun Jaitley said “today’s press conference is a failed attempt to bring moral equivalence between the BJP and the Congress”.

Accusing the IAC of wanting to stay in limelight, Jaitley said “even after digging deep we have not been able to understand what the allegations (against Gadkari) are”.

“They have created a mountain of what was not even a molehill,” he added.

Jaitley said after today’s press conference, they have damaged the credibility of the civil society organisations.
