Veteran lawyer and Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha) from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Ram Jethmalani on Tuesday backed senior arty colleague Yashwant Sinha for his resent statement against party president Nitin Gadkari.

Jethmalani said that it is a very welcome step and he is very glad that someone other than him has the similar opinion about Gadkari.

"I an very glad that I am not alone in the party. Yashwant is a leader and I am happy that at least one leader has taken this stand," said Jethmalani.

Earlier today Sinha once again gave a blow to Nitin Gadkari and demanded his resignation as BJP president.

"Whether our party president is guilty or not is not the issue today. The issue is that all of us in public life should be beyond reproach," said Sinha.

Sinha today's statement has brought alive the campaign initiated by Ram Jethmalani and his son Mahesh in the wake of the allegation of dubious financing of Purti Sugar and Power Group led headed by Gadkari. (ANI)
