New Delhi: There must be some truth in the allegations of wrongdoing against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Nitin Gadkari, union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said here on Friday.

"If media is reporting that Gadkari has done something wrong then there must be some truth in it," Shinde told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.

India Against Corruption (IAC) member Arvind Kejriwal had last week levelled allegations related to land deals in Maharashtra against the BJP chief.

The latest allegations against Gadkari are about improper business dealings as chairman of the Purti group.

The BJP has said that any competent authority could probe the charges.
