Varun Gandhi Writes Emotional Note To Pilibhit Voters After Being Denied Lok Sabha Ticket By BJP

New Delhi: Days after being dropped by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) from its list of Lok Sabha candidates, sitting MP from Uttar Pradesh’s Pilibhit Varun Gandhi on Thursday wrote an emotional letter to voters in the constituency.

Referring to himself as Pilibhi Ka Beta, he wrote, “If not as an MP then as a son, I am committed to serve you throughout my life and my doors will always remain open for you… as before. I came into politics to raise the voice of the common man, and today I seek your blessings to always continue doing this work, no matter the cost.”

He reminisced about his first visit to Pilibhit as a three-year-old back in 1983 with his mother and said even though his tenure as an MP was coming to an end, his relationship with Pilibhit cannot end till his last breath.

“… I remember that three-year-old boy who came to Pilibhit for the first time in 1983, holding his mother’s finger. How could he know that one day this land would become his workplace, and the people here would become his family?” he wrote.

Gandhi said he considered himself fortunate to have had the opportunity to serve the people of Pilibhit, and that their ideals, simplicity, and kindness had a huge contribution to his upbringing and development. “Being your representative has been the greatest honour of my life, and I have always championed your interests to the best of my ability,” he wrote.

“The relationship between Pilibhit and me is one of love and trust… which is far above any political multiplication. I was, am, and will be yours…” Gandhi concluded.

Gandhi is a two-time MP from Pilibhit, and before him, his mother, Maneka Gandhi, a noted environmental activist and former Union Minister, won the seat six times.
