Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Thursday ridiculed BJP for giving a clean chit to its president Nitin Gadkari after an internal examination of his business accounts by RSS ideologue S Gurumurthy wondering if he was BJP's CAG.

"Gurumurthy BJP's CAG?" Singh wondered in a post on micro-blogging site Twitter.

Firing a fresh salvo at BJP, Singh had on Wednesday reminded that Gadkari had in past defended former Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurppa over the corruption issue.

"Gadkari on Yedurappa corruption 'Immoral but not illegal'. BJP response to Gadkari's fraud companies 'Neither Illegal nor Immoral' Jai Ho BJP," Singh had commented on Twitter.

Divisions persist within BJP over the continuance of Gadkari as its president even after the clean chit given by the party's Core Group on the functioning of his companies.

Gurumurthy had made a presentation on the investments made in Gadkari's company Purti Sugar and Power Ltd before the BJP Core Group.

The AICC general secretary, who has been frequently attacking BJP, had also said sarcastically, "My admiration for (LK) Advani has gone up for his principled stand on Gadkari. "Advani sangharsh karo Jaswant, Yashwant, Ram (Jethmalani) Aapke saath hain (Advani you struggle. Jaswant, Yashwant and Ram Jethmalani are with you)".
