New Delhi: India Against Corruption leader Arvind Kejriwal Thursday said his revelations about alleged corrupt dealings involving BJP chief Nitin Gadkari were “the tip of the iceberg” and a detailed probe would bring out “more truths” even as the party dismissed the charges.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), however, said that nothing came out of Kejriwal’s allegations made Wednesday and the party chief had answered all the points raised by him.

A day after his disclosures targeting Gadkari, Kejriwal told reporters here: “If there is a detailed investigation, more truths will be exposed.”

“We have just started the process, it has to be taken forward,” the activist-turned-politician said.

Kejriwal had accused Gadkari of grabbing land from Maharashtra farmers in collaboration with the Congress-Nationalist Congress Party government in the state.

The BJP is in the opposition in Maharashtra.

Gadkari had denied the charges as baseless, and said he was ready for a probe.

Kejriwal had also attacked Gadkari over his remarks that the allegations were “chillar (small change)”, saying the matter may be of little consequence to BJP chief but it was life and death matter for farmers who had lost their land.

BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said Kejriwal had created hype but nothing eventually came out.

She said Kejriwal had attempted to hog the limelight and appear equidistant from both the BJP and Congress.

She said while Gadkari had answered all the questions raised by Kejriwal, the Congress had not answered specific allegations against Vadra.
