Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Shatrughan Sinha on Saturday said he was 'ideologically' with Ram Jethmalani and Yashwant Sinha who have sought the resignation of party president Nitin Gadkari over allegation of corruption.

"The issue raised by them (Jethmalani and Yashwant Sinha) should be looked at seriously," Sinha, BJP Lok Sabha member from Patna Sahib, told reporters here.

Jethmalani, while demanding Gadkari's resignation, had claimed some other BJP leaders were with him on the demand for Gadkari's exit as party chief.

On Gadkari, Sinha said: "He is a friend but a person occupying a responsible post should not only be honest but should also be seen as honest."

Praising Yashwant Sinha and Ram Jethmalani, Sinha said they are capable persons and have all the qualifications to become Prime Ministers of the country.

"But among the present leaders in BJP, L K Advani is the best candidate for the PM's post." (ANI with inputs)
