Pilibhit, Apr 22 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Varun Gandhi will file his nomination papers from Pilibhit today.
Varun, who is on a two-week parole after being jailed under the National Securities Act (NSA) for his alleged hate speech, will be accompanied by his mother Maneka Gandhi.
Meanwhile, the Election Commission (EC) on Tuesday turned down the request made by Varun for transfer of Pilibhit District Magistrate and Superintendent of Police.
The EC also rejected Varun’s appeal to appoint neutral observers in his constituency.
On April 18, Varun requested the EC to appoint neutral observers in order to prevent any sort of mischief by the Uttar Pradesh Government at the time of his filing the nomination. (ANI)
