"If me or my wife had purchased shares of one particular company and sold it next year, I don't understand how I am answerable for that. Anyone can do that. Anyone can buy shares in any company," he told reporters on the sidelines of a function in Chennai.

Reacting to reports in this regard, he alleged the media was "going to that level," and said he was sorry to say that.

Reports in a section of media had said Pawar had held 1,000 shares in BJP President Nitin Gadkari-linked Ideal Road Builders (IRB) as on March 31, 2011.

Pawar declined to respond to allegations of irregularities surrounding Gadkari.
