Anyone can probe Gadkari: BJP
New Delhi: The BJP Tuesday said 'any competent authority' can probe allegations of corruption against its president Nitin Gadkari. 'The party president has said any competent authority can probe the charges,' Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman told the media. India Against Corruption has accused Gadkari of land grab in Vidarbha in Maharashtra, an allegation he denied. On Tuesday, media reports revealed that an infrastructure company IRB gave his company a loan of Rs.165 crore, two years after IRB was awarded road contracts by Gadkari when he was the Maharashtra PWD minister.
