In a statement issued in Pilibhit, Varun expressed his faith in the judiciary and welcomed the decision of the court.

“I would like to thank all the people who have stood by me and believed in me through this difficult time. I am specially grateful to the people of Uttar Pradesh and Pilibhit, who elected me. I am determined to be worthy of that support as we work together confidently and courageously for the peace and progress of our great nation,” he said.
