Varun, who represents Sultanpur constituency of Uttar Pradesh, had asked whether India was “employing any scientific technique for wetland conservation”.

Vehemently denying the charge, Varun said, “This is absolutely baseless and it is beneath my dignity to respond to this nonsense.”
Varun Gandhi has just released his 2nd poetry book ‘Stillness’. He talks about his writing and political beliefs.
