Lucknow: Show cause notices have been issued to two Congress leaders who put up posters to welcome BJP leader Varun Gandhi in Prayagraj. The posters showed Varun Gandhi and Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi and the slogan was, “Dukkh bhare din bete re bhaiya, ab sukh aayo re.” Both the leaders, Irshadullah and Baba Abhay Awasthi, have been asked to face their conduct or action.
Congress workers in Uttar Pradesh are buoyed by reports of Varun Gandhi’s alleged disenchantment with the BJP after posting several tweets in support of the agitating farmers. A senior party leader, (who spoke on the condition of anonymity) said, “It would be great if Varun Gandhi joins the Congress and is made the chief ministerial candidate. This will help the Congress in a few days.” Will get political life in UP. There will be no conflict with his cousins, as they are national leaders.”
Varun Gandhi has told the rumors to be baseless
Varun Gandhi has already termed the rumors of joining Congress as “baseless”. Both Maneka Gandhi and Varun Gandhi have not been included in the BJP’s national executive, leading to many speculations about their future in the party.
