New Delhi: Amid fresh allegations of wrongdoing in his firms, BJP president Nitin Gadkari on Thursday cancelled his trip to New Delhi. Gadkari will stay back in Nagpur.

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

Sources said that Gadkari will now go straight to Himachal Pradesh for campaigning on Saturday.

Recently, media reports have raised questions over the source of funds for Purti Power and Sugar Ltd controlled by Gadkari. Media investigations claim that major investments and large loans to Purti were made by a construction firm Ideal Road Builders (IRB) group, which had won contracts between 1995 and 1999, when Gadkari was PWD minister in Maharashtra.
