‘Senior leader’ wanted help to topple UPA-II, says Gadkari

Nagpur, April 12 (IANS) Former Bharatiya Janata Party chief Nitin Gadkari Friday claimed that a “senior leader” of the UPA-II wanted his support to topple the Congress-led alliance government in New Delhi.

“The UPA leader who had approached was capable of bringing down the government. However, after that, the kind of assurances which they wanted, we were not in a position to give,” Gadkari contended.

Gadkari added that he had outrightly rejected the proposal, but declined to name the leader who had “approached” him.

He also refused to divulge whether the leader was from the Congress or one of the constituents of the ruling United Progressive Alliance-II.
