New Delhi, Mar 25: Varun Gandhi's mother and former Union Minister Menaka Gandhi for the first time broke silence over her son's alleged 'hate speech' on Thursday, Mar 26. She attacked Congress saying that the party 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," Menaka told a news channel.
"It is Congress which should be ashamed for giving party tickets to people involved in the anti-Sikh riots in which thousands of Sikhs were killed," she added.
Congress also had submitted another clip of Varun's speech which depicted Varun speaking against Sikh Community as well.
However, Maneka Gandhi claimed that: "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."
