BJP national president Nitin Gadkari, who is facing the heat over corruption allegations, on Thursday cancelled his scheduled trip to Delhi as he was indisposed.

“Nitinji has cancelled his routine visit to Delhi since he is indisposed due to exertion yesterday on Vijayadashmi,” his personal staff said when contacted.

It was widely speculated that Mr. Gadkari would be on Thursday meeting top party leaders in Delhi, who have backed him.

Media reports have raised questions over the source of funds for Purti Power and Sugar Ltd controlled by Mr. Gadkari.

The BJP president has stated that he is ready for any investigation into the antecedents of Purti Power and Sugar Ltd.
