The Supreme Court has postponed the hearing on the imposition of NSA (National Security Act) on Varun Gandhi till April 16. Varun is currently lodged at Etah jail after Mayawati government in Uttar Pradesh slapped NSA against him for making hate speech against the Muslim community at an election rally in Pilibhit last month. The Supreme Court has asked Varun to give an undertaking that he won’t make any provocative or inflammatory speeches in future.
The counsel appearing for Uttar Pradesh government and Varun agreed to the suggestion. The hearing in the case was adjourned till April 16. Senior advocate Harish Salve, appearing for Uttar Pradesh government and Pilibhit’s District Magistrate, said that if Varun gives an undertaking to the Court that he will not create a volatile situation after being released, then it has no objection to his released on interim bail.
