Days After Maneka’s 'No Job for Muslims' Jibe, Son Says Will Help Muslims Even if They Don’t Vote
The junior Gandhi’s accommodating approach comes a week after his mother, Maneka, created a flutter with her remark that if she wins without the help of Muslim voters, she will not help them with providing jobs.
In this election, mother-son duo Maneka and Varun Gandhi have swapped their respective constituencies.
While addressing an election rally on Sunday, Varun said, “I just want to say one thing to my Muslim brother that if you vote for me, I will feel good. But even if you don’t, it’s okay. You can still demand jobs from me.”
#WATCH BJP's Varun Gandhi in Pilibhit, earlier today: Bas mein ek cheez Muslim bhai ko bolna chahta hun ki agar aapne mujhe vote diya toh mujhe bahut accha lagega, agar aapne mujhe vote nahi diya, koi baat nahi, tab bhi mujh se kaam le le na, koi dikat ki baat nahi. pic.twitter.com/xMLzreAJ1k— ANI UP (@ANINewsUP) April 21, 2019

The statement had even made EC issue a notice to her, which was followed by a two-day ban.
