India Elections : Varun Gandhi likely to file nomination today

BJP candidate Varun Gandhi will file his nomination papers from here on wednesday afternoon amid elaborate security arrangements.

Varun, who has been booked under the National Security Act (NSA) by the Mayawati government for his alleged hate speeches, got reprieve with the Supreme Court on parole after he promised not to make any provocative speeches.

Varun Gandhi is released to file nomination and election campaigning for a period of two weeks from Etah Jail.
After the district administration denied permission for a procession of his supporters to accompany him, Mr. Gandhi has kept the event low profile, a party source said.

Mr. Gandhi, grandson of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and son of Sanjay Gandhi, is making his electoral debut with the Lok Sabha polls.

Meanwhile, the Election Commission on Tuesday rejected Varun Gandhi’s request for transfer of Pilibhit District Magistrate and Superintendent of Police as also appointment of neutral observers.
