Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav today dismissed the controversy surrounding BJP candidate Varun Gandhi's hate speech, saying "such" people wanted only attention.
"I don't want to say anything on Arun...Varun. Leave it. Why do you (media) give importance to him...Such people want only 'charcha'," Yadav told reporters when asked about Gandhi's inflammatory comments in Pilibhit.
When asked whether he was aware what Gandhi had said, Yadav said "leave the topic".
