While campaigning for his mother and Union minister Maneka Gandhi in Sultanpur constituency of Uttar Pradesh, BJP leader Varun Gandhi on Saturday referring to the SP-BSP candidate told people not to fear anyone and said he gets his "shoelaces untied" by such people.
The Samajwadi Party-Bahujan Samaj Party combine has fielded muscle-man Chandra Bhadra Singh alias Sonu Singh, from Sultanpur.
"I am standing here. I am the son of Sanjay Gandhi and I get my shoelaces untied by such people," he said, and also asserted that this election is about the "pride" of the country.
Varun Gandhi asked the people not to fear anyone and said, "People should fear their sins and not some Monu or Tonu. A human being without dignity is as good as dead. I only want to say one thing -- you don't need to fear anyone except gods. No one can do anything to you".
