BJP ally Nitish Kumar calls for action against Varun
Speaking after the Allahabad High Court rejected Gandhi's petition seeking quashing of an FIR against him, the Bihar chief minister said that legal action should be taken against him for making irresponsible statements.

MUCH TO the consternation of his chief ally Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Bihar chief minister and Janata Dal-United (JD - U) chief Nitish Kumar, on Wednesday (March 25) called for legal action against BJP candidate Varun Gandhi for making communal remarks.


Speaking after the Allahabad High Court rejected Gandhi's petition seeking quashing of an FIR against him, the Bihar chief minister said that legal action should be taken against him for making irresponsible statements.


Action as per law should be taken against such people, said Kumar, adding that his party had already condemned the incidence. He, however, refrained from asking the BJP to drop Varun as a candidate from Pilibhit, maintaining that every party was free to take its own decisions.


JD (U)'s election partner BJP has said that it would issue a structured statement after the high court decision rejected Varun's appeal. The party earlier had turned around in support of Gandhi and alleged that election commission had taken a vindictive stand on the entire issue.


Gandhi, meanwhile, has decided to move Supreme Court to file an appeal after the High Court in Allahabad refused his bail plea. Uttar Pradesh police has registered three FIRs against the BJP candidate for making communal speeches.
