The BJP has demanded a public apology from Chief Minister Mayawati for imposing National Security Act on Varun Gandhi saying the Supreme Court order had vindicated party's stand that government's act was politically-motivated.

"The Apex Court's order asking the state government to revoke NSA on Varun Gandhi is a slap on the face of Mayawati Government and Chief Minister should now take responsibility for using this draconian law to gain political mileage," BJP spokesman HN Dixit told reporters here on Thursday.

He said that Chief Minister should publicly apologise for the misdeed of her government.

"The state government's decision to move the Supreme Court after State Advisory Board of the High Court recommendation against the NSA on Varun, reflects the desperation of the Mayawati Government to politicise the issue," Dixit said, and added that the Apex Court's order was people's victory.

He said that it also showed the state government's disrespect for Constitutional bodies. "The imposition of NSA on Varun was an act of political vendetta and the state government should be ashamed of it," he said.
