After Varun Gandhi’s release from Etah Jail, Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) president Rajnath Singh has said that the young leader will behave now, suggesting that he interprets his spell in prison as political lesson.
Needless to add, he was yesterday set free on parole at the directives of the apex court in Pilibhit hate speech case.
Immediately after Varun’s arrival in New Delhi, Rajnath Singh said that he would campaign for the party and refrain from making communally charged speeches. However, maintaining BJP’s ambiguous position on Varun, the party’s Lok Sabha candidate from Pilibhit, Singh stood by his claim that he never made a hate speech.
At Delhi airport, Varun managed to give the slip to reporters and camerapersons waiting for him, as he was escorted away from an exclusive VIP gate.
Earlier, as Varun made his way from Etah Jail to Agra airport, it was evident that his spell in prison has only made him a bigger martyr to the saffron cause in the eyes of the BJP’s rank and file and other Hindu organizations.
