Chief Election Commissioner N Gopalaswami on Tuesday said it was for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to accept or reject its advisory on withdrawing Varun Gandhi as its candidate in upcoming Lok Sabha elections in light of his alleged anti-minority speech early this month.

Gopalaswami told mediapersons here after meeting State election officials and political parties to review the situation in Karnataka where polling for 28 seats in the State will take place in two phases on April 23 and April 30. The CEC indicated the laws as they stand did not empower the poll panel to pass a binding order on such issues.
