New Delhi, Mar 26 (ANI): Former Union Minister Maneka Gandhi on Thursday broke silence over her son's alleged hate speech, saying the Congress was taking up the case to 'conceal' its 'anti-Sikh acts'.
"It has become empirical for Congress to show such tapes (of hate speeches) to conceal their anti-Sikh acts," Gandhi said.
She accused the Congress of giving tickets to people involved in the anti-Sikh riots, in which thousands of Sikhs were killed," Gandhi said.
She further said that the Election Commission has also dismissed the tape as a fake one.
"The Election Commission has also dismissed the tape as a fake one and it actually is a fake one because Varun has not spoken anything like that," she added.
On March 17, the Election Commission filed a criminal case under a non-bailable law against Varun Gandhi for his alleged hate speech against Muslims in Pilibhit. (ANI)
