Cases against Varun part of ‘political conspiracy’: Maneka GandhiMarch 29th, 2009 - 9:55 pm ICT by ANI
Pilibhit, Mar 29 (ANI): Former Union Minister and mother of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Varun Gandhi, Maneka Gandhi, on Sunday said registration of cases against her son was part of a ‘political conspiracy’.
“The registration of cases against Varun is part of a political conspiracy. It is frivolous. Varun is not a criminal. It is incorrect to register cases against him,” Maneka told reporter after meeting her son in the district jail.
She was accompanied by the BJP leader Gangwar and former Uttar Pradesh Minister Dharampal Singh.
Gangwar said that his party would fully support Varun.
“The contents of the CD have not yet been authenticated. The picture will be clear after getting forensic report. Therefore, Varun cannot be called a culprit. BJP fully supports him,” he added.
The Pilibhit court, on Saturday had sent Varun to jail until Monday. The court took this decision shortly after the BJP candidate from Pilibhit, Varun had said he was ready to go to jail, claiming that he had not passed any hate remarks during the election rally in the district on March 6. (ANI)
