Varun Gandhi is a Gandhi first and then a BJP MP aspirant. He forgot this and is now neck deep in trouble over communal election speeches he made while campaigning in Pilibhit, his constituency in Uttar Pradesh.

Some other BJP candidate may perhaps have gotten away with it. But Varun is now facing cases filed against him by the Election Commission (EC) — for inciting communal hatred — and the UP police.

And his own party leaders — such as LK Advani — are hopping mad. Muslim leaders of the party such as Shahnawaz Hussain and Mukhtar.
