The Uttar Pradesh government has challenged the advisory board's decision to revoke NSA against Varun Gandhi. Varun had made inflammatory remarks against Muslims.
The state government has approached the Supreme Court, holding that the board didn't take cognisance of the evidence which was handed over to it by the administration regarding Varun Gandhi's communal remarks in Pilibhit.
Mayawati has been taking credit of arresting Varun to garner Muslim support in election rallies. The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) hopes to wean away Muslims from the Samajwadi Party.
Varun Gandhi was arrested under the stringent National Security Act (NSA) for his alleged speech in which he had threatened Muslims. He was arrested and jailed. Later he was shifted to another prison.
But the UP government had received a major setback when the advisory board had given its verdict against the action and held that it was not proper to book him under the act.
