Poor turnout at party workers' meet puts off Varun Gandhi
Snubbing workers who were raising slogans, Varun said, "It seems you have come to take ticket in the next elections."

Ballia/Mau: Apparently peeved over low turnout at a party workers' meeting in Ballia, senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader Varun Gandhi on Tuesday refused to address it but later he claimed no such meeting was scheduled and that he was on a private visit.

Varun, a Lok Sabha member from Sultanpur, was scheduled to address party workers at Tagunia, the native village of BJP MP from Ghosi constituency Harinarain Rajbhar. Seeing only a handful of party workers, Varun refused to address them. The BJP leader returned without even addressing the media.

Later, Varun said that there was no meeting scheduled in Ballia and that he was on a private visit.

"I had gone there to attend a wedding and there was no public meeting," Varun said, adding that so there was a no question of poor turnout.

Meanwhile, Varun addressed a public meeting in Mau and said that he had joined politics to give it a new direction.

"The meaning of politics is not winning or losing but to serve the last person on the social ladder," he said.

The BJP MP also attacked dynastic politics and the state police saying that almost 80 per cent cases are fake or guided by politics.

Snubbing workers who were raising slogans, Varun said, "It seems you have come to take ticket in the next elections."
