CBI director row: Jethmalani slams party's move

New Delhi: Ram Jethmalani on Monday said he has written a letter to BJP chief Nitin Gadkari, whose resignation the veteran lawyer had demanded after Gadkari's name surfaced in the financial dealings of a company linked to him. But the Rajya Sabha member declined go reveal the contents of his letter.

"I have written a letter to the party (Bharatiya Janata Party) president. (But) I am not in a position to reveal its content," he told reporters here.

"You can get it (the content) from them... I have told them (the BJP) that you are entitled to release it to the press. I am under the oath of secrecy until the letter reaches the BJP president," he added.

The BJP Sunday suspended Jethmalani from the party for gross violation of party dicipline and speaking against Gadkari. The party was also left red−faced when the octogenarian leader contradicted the party's stand on the appointment of Ranjit Sinha as the new Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) director.
