I didn’t need Priyanka Gandhi to enhance my life, asserts Robert Vadra
In an interview to a TV news agency, Vadra on Thursday said: “I did not need Priyanka (his wife) to enhance my life, I think I had enough. My parents gave me enough.”
Vadra, who is under scanner for his land deals in Haryana, also said that he would never leave India. “I am born and brought up here. I would never leave my country even if I am humiliated. No matter what the government says, I have the ability to sustain and to absorb. I have a very strong and good family which gives me strength,” he said.
A one-man commission is probing Robert Vadra’s land deals in Haryana. The CAG had blamed Haryana’s previous Congress government, led by then chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, for showing undue favours to Robert Vadra, in his multi-million rupee controversial land deal with realty giant DLF.
When asked whether he would take the plunge into active politics, Vadra said, “I would not say never, let’s see what future has in store for me.”
Robert Vadra has campaigned for his brother-in-law Rahul Gandhi and his mother-in-law Sonia Gandhi in Uttar Pradesh but has never made campaign speeches or taken part in political meetings.
When asked whether he planned to change that strategy, Vadra replied, “When people will call for me, when they think I can make some change, then only will I think of joining politics. I understand my responsibilities. I know with which family I am associated, what they have done for generations. I have to make sure that I respect it.”
Asserting that the people of the nation are wise enough to comprehend the veracity of the present circumstances enveloping the country, Robert Vadra on Thursday said that in the near future the Prime Minister Narendra Modi led- Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government “will witness a major revolt.”
