Talking to reporters in Vadodara, Yadav said, "Gadkari has already demanded probe into charges of corruption levelled against him. His stand will help bring out the truth.

"Gadkari has himself said allegations levelled against him are baseless. He has appeared before the media to explain his position. He has himself said that he is open to any investigations by any competent authority."

Yadav was in the city on Thursday to chalk out JD(U)'s strategy for the Gujarat Assembly polls. The party is fighting the elections in the state independently.
