New Delhi: BJP veteran leader Murli Manohar Joshi on Monday wrote to Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora to launch an immediate probe into the fake letter in his name being circulated on the social media.
“A lot of friends from media have told me that a letter is doing rounds on social media which is being presented as that written by me to Lal Krishna Advani,” he wrote. Asserting that he has not written any such letter, Dr Joshi wanted the EC to inquire into the origin of the letter without any delay.
In the fake letter, Dr Joshi claims Advani’s assessment of the BJP winning only 120 seats in the Lok Sabha elections while his own assessment is 150, far below the numbers required to continue in power. Both Advani and Dr Joshi are members of the outgoing Lok Sabha and both have been denied renomination.
