Cong brushes aside possibility of Varun joining it

Amid reports that Varun Gandhi is not all that happy in BJP, Congress today brushed aside questions on possibility of his joining the party.

"We do not answer hypothetical questions... whether somebody is angry or not not ask him whether he is angry or not. It is not necessary for us to comment," party spokesperson Manish Tewari told reporters.

He was replying to questions on whether it was time for Varun to join the Congress as he was reportedly unhappy in BJP after the campaign in the current UP assembly elections.

Reports had it that Varun considered a star campaigner in the party in 2009 Lok Sabha election was given a short shrift by the party this time as his campaigning was limited to the assembly segments falling within his Parliamentary seat Pilibhit.

The Congress spokesperson, however, refused to comment on such reports saying it was internal matter of BJP.

"Whom BJP will use for election campaign or not, it falls in their jurisdiction," Tewari said.
He added that Congress fights election on its manifesto, ideology and issues.
