New Delhi, Feb 27 (IANS) The BJP Friday refused to react to a media report about Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari taking a French cruise along with his family, which was sponsored by a top corporate house.

"This kind of news keeps coming every day. We don't need to react to this," BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi told the media.

According to a report published in the Indian Express, Essar Group sponsored a trip on a foreign yacht for Gadkari and his family.

The report goes on to mention how the group cultivated individuals in positions of power and influence, showered them with gifts and favours to push its business interests.

Gadkari, however, said: "I will not do so now that I am a minister...But then I wasn't, neither an MP nor BJP president".

The Indian Express report also said that former minister Sriprakash Jaiswal, Congress leaders Digvijaya Singh and Motilal Vora and BJP's Varun Gandhi referred candidates for jobs in Essar.
