Congress on Friday downplayed the revoking of NSA against BJP leader Varun Gandhi, saying the matter had lost its relevance after the saffron party leader undertook to be "on a good behaviour under a Supreme Court monitored tight leash".

"The matter had lost its relevance long ago after Varun Gandhi undertook to be on good behaviour under a Supreme Court monitored tight leash," party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi told PTI.

Singhvi said, "Gandhi cannot claim martyrdom or victimhood after the recommendation to revoke NSA".

The Uttar Pradesh Advisory Board held as invalid slapping of the NSA against Gandhi for alleged hate speeches.
