Unfazed by the controversy about the funding pattern of his company, BJP chief Nitin Gadkari is all set to campaign for the party in Himachal Pradesh Nov 4 poll. Gadkari was expected to reach Himachal on October 27 to address campaign rallies. Gadkari will address rally at Rikangpio in Kinnaur and Nerwa in Chopal assembly segment.

Anti-corruption is BJP’s main poll plank for the Nov 4 assembly poll, where BJP leaders have opened a brute and intensive campaign against HPCC president Virbhadra Singh. However, Gadkari’s presence in campaign can give Congress leaders chance to retaliate at BJP campaign.

BJP high-command and parent body, the RSS have extended full support to him. But still Gadkari’s trouble could compound with the Income Tax department reportedly having initiating a move to probe the funding pattern of his company Purti Power and Sugar Limited.
