National,Politics, Thu, 21 May 2009 IANS

Lucknow, May 21 (IANS) Controversy is not leaving the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) poster boy Varun Gandhi. Hogging the limelight for sometime for his alleged anti-Muslim speeches, the young Lok Sabha MP is now caught in a row with journalists.


A group of Uttar Pradesh scribes Thursday accused Varun Gandhi, the BJP MP from Pilibhit of 'misbehaviour' and sought security from the Pilibhit district administration while covering his programmes.



About 30 journalists from different media houses submitted a memorandum at the district magistrate's office.



'We have asked the district administration to provide security to media persons during programmes of Varun Gandhi,' president of Pilibhit Journalist Association Mohan Kumar told IANS.



Kumar alleged that Varun Gandhi misbehaved with some reporters May 19 when they approached him for his comments over the BJP's poor performance in the state.



'Varun got angry and he along with his security personnel even attacked journalists of some TV news channels. Varun also damaged the camera of a TV journalist,' Kumar said.



District magistrate Ajay Chauhan said he was yet to receive the memorandum. 'From local newspapers I have come to know that Varun Gandhi allegedly manhandled some journalists,' Chauhan told IANS.



'We will take steps accordingly after going through the memorandum,' he added.
