BJP leader Yashwant Sinha puts party in a spot ahead of winter session of Parliament


New Delhi: The campaign for the resignation of beleaguered BJP president Nitin Gadkari on Tuesday got fresh ammunition with senior leader Yashwant Sinha demanding that he step down immediately.

“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,” he said.
Sinha’s demand brings alive once again the campaign initiated by BJP Rajya Sabha MP Ram Jethmalani and his son Mahesh for the party chief’s resignation in the wake of reports of dubious deals involving his firm.
The former finance minister said the party should be allowed to serve the people with pride and honour.
“We must ensure that the country comes out of the present morass of corruption and does not sink deeper in it. Our credentials must not be questioned in this fight against corruption.”
Ever since allegations of dubious dealings by Gadkari’s firm surfaced in the media, the saffron party has been divided over his continuation as president. While leaders like Ram Jethmalani, Mahesh Jethmalani and Karnataka Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar have demanded Gadkari’s ouster, the BJP top brass has backed him.
According to party sources, the timing of the Sinha’s demand has put the party in a tight spot as it plans to corner the government on various issues in the winter session of Parliament, beginning November 22.
The party will also hold a nation-wide rally on Wednesday against the corruption charges that the ruling party is facing.
Reconsider views: BJP to Sinha
Hours after Sinha’s remarks, the saffron party criticised him for going public with his statement.
“Being a senior leader Yashwant Sinha has all forums of the party open to him for discussion. Instead he chose to go public over the issue, which the party deem inappropriate,” deputy leader of oppostition in Rajya Sabha Ravi Shankar Prasad said after an NDA meeting in New Delhi.
