Gurumurthy, a Chartered Accountant and financial analyst, maintained that he had professionally examined the Purti papers and expressed his professional views. BJP also stood firm in support of Gadkari, saying he is a social entrepreneur who has worked for the welfare of the farmers of Vidarbha in Maharashtra. The party also mentioned the clean chit given by Gurumurthy and said the well-known CA had found there was no bungling in the investments made in Purti Group.
