Describing the detention of Varun Gandhi under the National Security Act (NSA) as part of vote bank politics in Uttar Pradesh, senior BJP leader L K Advani on Wednesday ruled out isolating the young leader in his hour of need.

"The move to detain him (Varun) under the NSA is purely due to vote bank politics in Uttar Pradesh ... And everybody knows who are behind it", the prime ministerial candidate of NDA told reporters here.

Stating that Varun was not a terrorist, Advani said the allegation against him was about his statement and wondered as to how NSA was invoked for a charge of this nature.

Moreover, Varun has claimed that the contents of the video showing the alleged hate speech have been doctored and forensic reports about the CD are yet to come, he said.

Replying to queries, he also dismissed suggestions that Varun might be isolated following the controversy.
