Varun Gandhi: Gandhi surname helped me to become MP at young age

Uttar Pradesh, Dec 17: BJP MP Varun Gandhi said on Saturday, that Gandhi surname helped him to become a two-time Lok Sabha member at a young age.He added that those without "influential" fathers and grandfathers find it difficult to make a mark in politics.The BJP MP from Sultanpur in Uttar Pradesh was speaking at a seminar here."Today, I have come to you and you all are listening to me. But the fact is if there was no Gandhi in my name, probably I would not have become a two-time MP at a young age and you would not have come here to listen to me," he said.Gandhi said many talented youngsters are unable to join and shine in politics as they do not have influential fathers and godfathers."The fact is that a young person from a humble background, even if he has the talent and leadership qualities, cannot come into politics unless his father or godfather is someone worthy," he said.
