Cong Charges Varun, BSP of “Vote Bank Politics”

After the Supreme Court instructed the UP government to annul charges against Varun Gandhi framed against NSA, the Congress said that the new Hindu poster boy of the BJP and the BSP government indulged in “vote bank politics” on the matter.

“Varun Gandhi and BSP government in Uttar Pradesh indulged in vote bank politics to garner votes…such politics does not help in the long run,” said Congress spokesperson Rajiv Shukla.

Saying that “the BJP leadership will dump Varun”, Shukla said that the episode would not help Varun.

Another Congress leader Satyavrat Chaturvedi said that the young leader was more of a “liability” and not an asset for BJP.

“Varun Gandhi is a liability and not an asset for BJP… ..It (imposition of NSA) was a joint plan of BJP and BSP to convert a politically unknown Varun into a hero,”Chaturvedi said.

However, BJP welcomed the decision sayinginvocation of this provision was an act of vendetta on the part of BSP and the Congress.

“We welcome the decision which only underlines the fact that invocation of NSA was an act of vendetta by the Uttar Pradesh government,” BJP spokesperson Balbir Punj said.

He said since the union government had endorsed this decision it implied that the “dirty tricks departments of BSP and the Congress were working together”.

The apex ourt today directed the Uttar Pradesh government to withdraw forthwith charges under the National Security Act against the BJP leader which were imposed for his alleged hate speeches.
