Amid the raging controversy over Rahul Mahajan's alleged drug overdose, former Prime Minister AB Vajpayee came to Rahul's help saying mistakes happen in young age.
"Such mistakes happen in young age," was former Prime Minister AB Vajpayee's comment on the alleged drug abuse by Rahul Mahajan, son of former BJP general secretary Pramod Mahajan.
"Chances of such mistakes are possible when you fall in bad company and that is what happened to Rahul," Vajpayee told reporters after a party meeting in Manali.
Asked whether the episode had tarnished the image of BJP, which was planning to give some responsibility to Rahul, Vajpayee replied in the negative.
"We will try to find the truth first," he said when asked whether the party would take any action against Rahul, admitted in New Delhi's Apollo Hospital.
Regarding who would be BJP's next 'Laxman', the title given to late Pramod Mahajan by him, Vajpayee quipped, "only one Laxman is born."
