Patna: L K Advani`s air-conditioned rath,
which was flagged off yesterday from Chapra had developed some
technical snag that forced Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley to
alight, BJP MP Ananth Kumar clarified here.
The generator of the bus had developed a snag that
resulted in the leakage of carbon monoxide gas and moreover
the exhaust was too not working properly, Kumar, the convener
of Advani`s Yatra, told reporters here.
He said both Swaraj and Jaitley, who were sitting in
the rear portion of the vehicle complained of nausea due to it
and thus they alighted from the vehicle midway yesterday on
the Mahatma Gandhi setu here.
The problem was attended to in Patna and things have
been set right for onward journey, he added.
Kumar made these clarifications during Advani`s press
