A day after the Election Commission filed a case against him for his vitriolic remarks against the Muslims, an unrepentant Varun Gandhi said he is the victim of a political conspiracy. He said he is well aware of his roots as a proud Gandhi, an Indian and a Hindu in equal measure.
Breaking his silence on his controversial speech targeting the Muslim community allegedly made during an election rally in Pilibhit on March 6, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Varun Gandhi on Wednesday morning issued a clarification saying he was a Gandhian and the CD of his speech had been tampered with.
Varun also applied for an anticipatory bail. An FIR had been filed by the Pilibhit District Magistrate on Tuesday following a directive by the Election Commission.
