Gadkari should be probed, says MM Joshi

Senior BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi said law should take its own course in the case of alleged irregularities in the companies owned by BJP president Nitin Gadkari.

Replying to a question by media persons at a press conference here on Saturday, Joshi did not take any name but clarified his stand by saying that nobody is above law and if there is any illegality in his business dealings, it should be inquired into regardless of party affiliations.

To another question, Joshi said the failure of the political parties to articulate the aspirations of the people has resulted in sections of society trying to form new parties. “It is time for introspection... the growing disappointment among the people is getting reflected in various forms of social unrest, including violence, in the country,” he said.

Terming the present economic policy as “mother of all ills,” Joshi called for review and warned that flawed economic regime may lead to developments like “Arab Spring”. “We will witness Indian winters if the government continues with the present policy,” he added.

He said the country is not only facing a deep economic crisis but also political and moral crises. He said there is a need for greater transparency in the functioning of the government and political parties. “Political parties must disclose their source of funding,” he added.
