BJP on Saturday said that Congress was trying to "hang Varun without a trial" while refusing gallows to Parliament attack accused Mohd Afzal.
"Congress has gone mad, it is seeking to hang Varun Gandhi without any proof or trial, while on the other hand it is shielding and protecting men like Mohd Afzal," party spokesperson Prakash Javadekar told reporters here today.
When asked on the party's reaction to the Congress charge of Varun Gandhi staging a drama to benefit PM Advani campaign, Javadekar said,"I am amused at the Congress' charge."
"Whatever Varun Gandhi did today was to abide by the law. Our party stands for justice and fair trail. Varun has denied the speech which is shown by the channels and attributed to him," Javadekar said.
The party spokesperson however declined to comment on whether the Central leadership was vary of supporting the Varun Gandhi episode. "It is all a media creation," he said.
As per sources, the party leadership had send clear instructions to the state unit to avoid any association to the arrest of Gandhi and had instructed not to use any party flag during the assembly in support of Gandhi.
Gandhi today courted arrest in a CJM court in Pilibhit.
