Probe fake letter in my name: Joshi to EC
New Delhi: Veteran BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi has sought an inquiry by the Election Commission into a fake letter being circulated in his name on social media and critical of the party's leadership and Lok Sabha poll prospects.
The fake letter, addressed to another party veteran L K Advani, has been in circulation for last few days.
Demanding an investigation by the poll panel, Joshi has written to Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora that he has not written any such letter.
"My friends in media called me up and told me that since Sunday a letter addressed by me to L K Advani Ji has been circulated on social media. I have read the contents of it and I am attaching them with this letter. I have not sent any such letter to Advani Ji. Kindly, immediately look into the matter and find the source of the letter, through which it came to social media," Joshi said.
Both Joshi and Adavani, who are among the founders of the party, had won last Lok Sabha elections in 2014 from Kanpur and Gandhinagar, respectively, but they have not got the party tickets to fight polls this time. See P5
