Paji, Dec 8: The BJP on Thursday said a “great deal of austerity” was observed at the wedding of Union Minister Nitin Gadkari’s daughter at gpur in Maharashtra on Sunday. There is no ban on spending “genuine hard-earned” money on events, BJP spokesperson G.V.L. rasimha Rao told the media here. “When people are experiencing inconvenience, generally we expect all public representatives to be a little cautious. But in this particular case, he (Gadkari) is our top most leader. I think it was done with a great deal of austerity,” Rao said. “There is no ban on anybody spending genuine hard-earned money on any event. If somebody has a lot of money, I think no one can really question it. But if people are using money acquired through illicit means, uccounted money, I think this is a matter of concern,” the BJP leader said. He said other people would have gone about such a function “on a much bigger scale”, adding that BJP leaders are practising a lot of austerity. (IANS)
