No clean chit to Gadkari, tweets Gurumurthy; Cong slams BJP
In yet another controversy surrounding graft allegations against Nitin Gadkari, chartered accountant RSS ideologue S Gurumurthy today tweeted that he has not given a clean chit to the BJP president.
"No clean chit to NG. I cannot give clean chit to any one who I don't know fully. I don't know NG at all," Mr Gurumurthy tweeted.
However, he deleted the tweet after the controversy.
Mr Gurumurthy's tweets came a few days after the BJP core group meeting in which the party reiterated its support for Mr Gadkari saying he is not guilty of wrongdoings.
After the meet BJP's chief spokesman Ravi Shankar Prasad said the decision was taken after Mr Gurumurthy went through Mr Gadkari's business documents and made a presentation that he has no direct or indirect interest in the 18 investment companies that have stake in Purti Group.
Reacting on the fresh controversy of the saffron party, All India Congress Committee (AICC) General Secretary Digvijay Singh said it seems, the corporates now dominate the RSS.
Commenting on the fresh controversy Mr Singh said, "It is true that there are some facts, which Mr Gadkari can not deny.
Purti is his company and some fake companies have invested in it. These flaws means that the corporate now dominates the Sangh." Yesterday Senior RSS leader M G Vaidya has also alleged that Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi was behind the campaign against BJP president Nitin Gadkari over allegations against his compay.
