India Elections : BJP distanced itself from Varun’s speech

There is more trouble for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate from Pilibhit Varun Gandhi.

After an FIR was filed on Tuesday against Varun for allegedly making a hate speech targeting Muslims during an election rally on March 6, two more cases have been registered against him. The two cases were filed on Thursday.

The EC has also sought forensic analysis of the tapes of Varun’s speech and has also ordered video tracking of all rallies and functions attended by him.

The BJP has already distanced itself from Varuns speech.

Varun had on Wednesday issued a clarification saying the CD of his speech had been tampered with and that the voice being heard is not his. He said that he was only speaking in favour of Hindus and that is why some political parties were targeting him.

After an enquiry by the DGP and the state Home Secretary, State CM Mayawati has ordered the suspension of the Pilibhit Assistant Superintendent of Police, the Sub district magistrate and the SO of Barkheda.

The Election Commission had also ordered the suspension of ASP and SDM, as well as the transfer of the DM and SSP.
