There were speculations, that Varun Gandhi would be joining the Congress party which is a party his ancestral were members of.

This misinformation has been declared as baseless and not true by the BJP politician who has been associated with the BJP for a good number of years. The sitting MP from Sultanpur has shunned all the news about the party rift and is happy to be in the ruling party. Varun also mentioned “Mere parivaar mein bhi kuchh log PM rahe hain lekin jo sammaan Modi ne desh ko dilaya hai, vo bahut lambe samay se kisi ne desh ko nahi dilaya…Vo aadmi keval jee raha hai desh ke liye aur vo marega desh ke liye. (Vajpayee ji was from a normal family but had never seen abject poverty. Modi ji is from an economically weaker family. Honestly speaking, some people of my family have also been Prime Minister but the honor that Prime Minister Modi has brought to the country hasn’t been seen in long past) “
The words of the politician are a clear statement to the opposition that Varun Gandhi has no intention of leaving the BJP. This puts away all the rumours of moving away from BJP. The opposition had mentioned that Varun should now join the BJP because he is being ignored by the party and its leaders. The opposition leaders even said that despite Varun being a supported choice, Yogi Adityanath was chosen as the CM candidate for UP. All these measures were taken just to prove that Varun Gandhi was to soon join Congress. This information is incorrect and Varun Gandhi is going nowhere and will stay with BJP.
