New Delhi, May 12 (ANI): The Uttar Pradesh Government on Tuesday moved the Supreme Court challenging advisory board’s decision on revoking charges against BJP leader Varun Gandhi under the NSA for his alleged hate speeches.

The Advisory Board on May 8 had held that it did not find plausible and convincing grounds for invoking the National Security Act against Varun Gandhi.

It was also not satisfied by the explanation given by the Pilibhit District Magistrate.

Varun Gandhi is BJP’s Lok Sabha candidate from Pilibhit. He is currently on parole following a Supreme Court order after remaining in jail for nearly three weeks.

His parole expires on Thursday. (ANI)
