Notwithstanding senior BJP leader LK Advani's regret letter to Sonia Gandhi, his party on Monday said the Congress president or her late husband Rajiv Gandhi had not been given a "clean chit" on the issue of black money.
"It is not a clean chit. Probe into black money is still on and one should wait for the process to end," BJP deputy leader in Lok Sabha Gopinath Munde told reporters here.
He was asked whether Advani's letter meant the party has cleared Gandhi's name in the black money issue.
Meanwhile, NDA convenor Sharad Yadav defended Advani's letter to Gandhi.
"The allegations were never refuted. But when she refuted the charge, Advani accepted it...we are in politics and fight for what is right," said Yadav, the chief of JD(U) which is a key ally of the BJP.
He said the issue of black money stashed abroad would betaken up during the Budget session.
