Varun Gandhi share Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s video of calling farmers intimidating

New Delhi: Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) MP Varun Gandhi who is recently dropped from the party’s National Executive list again showed his support to the farmers and tweeted a video of late former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s video.

According to news agency PTI the video is from 1980 and Mr Vajpayee is cautioning the then Indira Gandhi government against repressing farmers.

“… warn the government against intimidating farmers. Don’t try to scare us… Farmers are not going to be scared. We don’t want to use farmers’ movement for politics…” Mr Vajpayee says in the video.

“We support their genuine demands, and if the government tries to scare us, or misuse the laws, or disregard the peaceful movement of farmers, we will also become part of the movement,” he adds.

“Wise words from a big-hearted leader,” is Mr Gandhi’s comment on the shared video.


Earlier this month Varun Gandhi was dropped from the BJP’s 80-member National Executive, as were his mother Maneka Gandhi and former Union Minister Birender Singh; all three have been seen as being sympathetic towards the farmers’ protests against the centre’s laws.

Mr Gandhi is also the only BJP member, so far, to speak up on the Lakhimpur Kheri issue, in which Ashish Mishra, the son of junior Home Minister Ajay Mishra, is accused of murdering four farmers.Ads by 

The Pilibhit MP has not only demanded “accountability” but also wrote to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to demand a CBI probe and ₹ 1 crore compensation for the dead farmers’ families.

This week he also targeted Ajay Mishra over his comment that Khalistanis had engineered the Lakhimpur events; without naming him he slammed it as an attempt to give communal colour.

Last week he tweeted a video of the black SUV ploughing through a group of peaceful protesters from behind, tagging it “murder” and saying that the video was enough to “shake the soul”.
