Admitting that BJP leader Varun Gandhi has become an election issue for the party, senior BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu said party president Rajnath Singh and senior party leader Arun Jaitley would devise strategy for an agitation over the issue.

He was talking to media persons here on Saturday. Naidu was here to campaign for BJP candidate from Guna parliamentary constituency Narottam Mishra.

"The BSP has made Varun Gandhi an election issue, which we have accepted. Singh and Jaitley are going to Uttar Pradesh shortly to discuss the future strategy with other party leaders," Naidu said, adding that the party would not agitate outside the purview of law. He alleged that the UP Government and the UPA Government took action under the National Security Act as part of a conspiracy and described it as 'sin'.

Naidu wondered why the UPA Government and the Uttar Pradesh Government failed to see people like traitor Afzal Guru and BSP leader Mukhtar Ansari. He said Gandhi had repeatedly asked for examination of the compact disc (CD) containing the alleged inflammatory remarks made by him.

He had even got bail in the two matters lodged by the Government, but efforts were being made to implicate him.

Vajpayee, he said Gandhi's episode reminded how Vajpayee was jailed during Emergency.

Naidu claimed that the people have understood this conspiracy of UP and UPA, and the BJP is with Varun. Regarding the statement of VHP leader Praveen Togadia to launch a nationwide agitation, Naidu said that party leaders were also considering the issue seriously.

He said that the Central Government has power to review the case of Varun Gandhi and release him, but the Congress would not do this.
