Defending her son Varun Gandhi, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Maneka Gandhi on Sunday said forensic reports verifying the contents of a CD containing his purported hate speeches were a 'one-sided version' and the 'entire tape is doctored'.
"The entire tape is doctored, words have been interchanged... the forensic report is a one-sided version," the MP from Aonla in Uttar Pradesh told reporters in New Delhi on her way to a party conclave.
She was reacting to reports that a forensic laboratory in Hyderabad had said that the CD of Varun Gandhi's speech made in March was not doctored.
Varun Gandhi, BJP MP from Pilibhit, invited flak for making alleged inflammatory remarks with communal overtones during the poll campaign. The Election Commission, acting on a complaint, slapped a notice against him.
