New Delhi: Amid reports of differences in the Delhi unit of BJP over its chief ministerial candidate, party in-charge of Delhi polls Nitin Gadkari on Sunday accused media of showing "false news" and said there is no rift among leaders.
During a function in the city, the former party chief said, "Vijay Goel left the election committee meeting to come here, but media said he left the meeting in anger. Now, I and Harsh Vardhanji have come here from the meeting, would you say that we are also angry... Don't show false news."
"Forget about us but think about your own credibility," Gadkari said, addressing a congregation of BJP workers organised by Delhi BJP's purvanchal morcha.
Gadkari was reacting on media reports that Goel reportedly walked out of the party's Chief Election Committee meeting held over not being projected as chief ministerial candidate for Delhi polls.
"Like Congress who has lost credibility, your channels will also lose its credibility and people will not see your channels," said Gadkari.
"BJP is not facing the question of who will become the prime minister or the chief minister, or who will become the MP or MLA," he said.
"We are facing the question how we will make our country progress, how poor will get a better life," he added.
