"I am also a RSS swayamsevak, with my own experience of 40 years RSS has not expressed such views, it is not an authorised opinion of RSS. Let me make it very clear. To my knowledge and understanding as a swayamsevak, I also know how RSS functions and as a BJP functionary I don't agree with reported things," Naidu said.
Earlier, BJP Rajya Sabha MP Ram Jethmalani and his son Mahesh had said Gadkari should immediately step down from his post as charges against him with regard to funding of his Purti group were damaging the party.
Jethmalani had claimed to have the support of other senior party leaders like Jaswant Singh, Yashwant Sinha and Shatrughan Sinha.
Talking to reporters at his residence here, Vaidya today said, "There seems to be unrest in the BJP and the lack of solidarity is evident in the party with members openly expressing their resentment".
He said even if there were differences of opinion in the RSS, the Sangh parivar comes out with only one statement or takes one stand in public.
He also said it was too early to talk about Lok Sabha elections and the Prime Ministerial candidate.
