New Delhi: As the Supreme Court asked the Uttar Pradesh government to revoke charges under the NSA against Varun Gandhi, Congress on Thursday alleged the young BJP leader and BSP government had indulged in “vote bank politics.”
“Varun Gandhi and BSP government in Uttar Pradesh indulged in vote bank politics to garner votes...such politics does not help in the long run,” said Congress spokesperson Rajiv Shukla.
He claimed that the episode will not help Varun as “the BJP leadership will ultimately dump him.”
Another Congress leader Satyavrat Chaturvedi said the young leader was more of a “liability” and not an asset for BJP.
“Varun Gandhi is a liability and not an asset for BJP... ..It (imposition of NSA) was a joint plan of BJP and BSP to convert a politically unknown Varun into a hero,” Chaturvedi told reporters here.
