Posted on: March 30, 2009

In a possible unprecedented action of NSA being slapped for a hate speech, Gandhi, who is in the eye of a storm for his alleged anti-Muslim utterances, the Mayawati government said there were three grounds which were taken into consideration by the state government for the decision.

“An order issued hy Pilibhit district magistrate Ajay Chauhan invoking NSA on the BJP nominee this evening has been served to Gandhi, who is currently lodged in the district jail,” Additional Cabinet Secretary Vijay Shanker Pandey told reporters in Lucknow.

Senior Supreme Court lawyer K T S Tulsi said ” it seems he will have to stay in jail may be even for a year or more because the government is clearly worried about the implications that it could have in the rest of the country.
