Victorious Varun, Maneka Gandhi meet L.K.AdvaniMay 17th, 2009 - 1:33 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, May 17 (ANI): BJP leaders Varun Gandhi and Maneka Gandhi arrived here to meet Lal Krishna Advani at his residence on Sunday morning, following reports of the latter’s wish to step down from party’s parliamentary board.
On Saturday, Varun Gandhi won from the Pilibhit Constituency and his mother Maneka Gandhi registered victory from Aonla Lok Sabha constituency in Uttar Pradesh.
The meeting holds significance, as it is to be seen whether the party holds more responsibilities to the young firebrand leader Varun Gandhi.Varun Gandhi’ poll campaigning had sparked a lot of interest in political circuits, following his alleged hate speech at an election rally in Pilibhitand slapping of National
Security Act by the UP govt. against him on March 29.
He was put behind bars by the Mayawait government in Uttar Pradesh.
However, the State Advisory Board, which conducted an in-camera hearing on April 28, recommended the revocation. The UP govt. was thus compelled to revoke the NSA against Varun following Supreme Court’s directive. (ANI)
