CD Scandal: Sanjay Joshi breathes easy
March 31, 2006 20:52 IST
It was the surprise birthday gift for Sanjay Joshi. The clean chit given by Madhya Pradesh police on Thursday to the former Bharatiya Janata Party functionary in the CD scandal probably could not have come at a better time.
However, Joshi was reluctant to be in the media glare in his moment of glory. When newsmen reached his residence, they were literally shooed away by the family members, saying that Sanjay Joshi did not live there. It was only when the senior BJP leaders arrived to greet Joshi that the family let the media in. Even then, it took some coaxing from the reporters before Joshi obliged with a short statement.
The fact that the CD surfaced on the eve of the BJP's silver jubilee celebrations was an indication that it was an attempt to put the party and the RSS to disrepute, he added.
Asked if he would accept any post in the RSS or the BJP again, Joshi said he was ready to accept any responsibility in the past, and will be so in the future as well.
