New Delhi, Oct 17: It is not just Congress leaders who are accused of being corrupt. Now, it is Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP's) turn to fight back against corruption charges. As activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal is all set to reveal corruption charges against BJP President Nitin Gadkari, the senior politician faces allegations of financial irregularities from his own party colleague.

Party leader Ram Jethmalani said that he has evidence of financial irregularities against Gadkari.

Jethmalani has said that if Arvind Kejriwal gives evidence of irregularities against Gadkari, then the senior BJP leader will not only back Kejriwal, but he too has evidence of wrongdoing by the BJP President.

He also went to the extent of saying that he would demand Gadkari's resignation if the charges surface.

In fact, Jethmalani had written a letter to Gadkari, dated Sept 27, 2012, when the BJP national executive was meeting in Surajkund on the outskirts of Delhi. In that letter, Jethmalani has complained about the state of affairs in the party.

Jethmalani said some of the aspiring leaders of the BJP have announced that 'black money is no issue' and the party's spokesmen are under instructions not to emphasise on this matter in public.

Meanwhile, Gadkari mentioned that he had not received any such letter.

Earlier, India Against Corruption (IAC) activist Anjali Damania had accused that BJP president had business relations with Sharad Pawar.
