Rejecting EC’s advice on Varun Gandhi was right decision: AdvaniMarch 29th, 2009 - 9:41 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Mar 29 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Lal Krishna Advani on Sunday said that the party’s decision to reject Election Commission’s advice not to field Varun Gandhi for the Lok Sabha Polls, was right.
“The party has taken a correct stand under the law and in accordance with Constitution,” Advani said.
He, however, advised the party candidates to show restraint in their speeches.
“I would like candidates of my party to exercise restraint in their utterances. There should be peace,” he added.
Wondering over the EC’s recommendation to the BJP not to give ticket to Gandhi, Advani said that this has happened for the first time in the last 60 years.
“Such powers have not been given to the EC by the Constitution or the law,” he added. (ANI)
