Just weeks after his wife Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was parachuted to the Congress party, Robert Vadra, an accused in several multi-crore land deal irregularities, has indicated that he is ready for a “larger role in serving the people”.
In a Facebook post, Vadra wrote, “The years n months that I spent campaigning n working in different parts of the country, but mainly in UP, gave me a feeling to do more for the people n make smaller changes possible by me, in their areas n when they got to know me, the genuine love, affection n respect I earned was humbling …All these years of experience n learning cannot be just wasted and should be put to better use… once all these accusations n allegations are over, I feel I should dedicate a larger role in serving the people”
Vadra has also listed his accomplishments in this Facebook post claiming that he had helped children of a blind school along with serving at Mother Theresa’s missions and other orphanages. He added that he sustained and kept strong while learning from visiting different faiths, places of worship and feeding hungry people outside hospitals, temples.
Robert Vadra also claimed that disaster management events and sending help to Kerala, Nepal and other places were a satisfying and learning experience for him. In his post, he further claims that he has always adhered to the rules and understood that he was not above the law. He said he was a person who learnt from every event he has gone through while referring to his visits to Enforcement Directorate in Delhi and Rajasthan.
Accusing different governments of trying to malign him, Vadra said his name has been used to divert from the real issues of the country. “People of the country gradually realised this Modus and knew there was no truth in any of these allegations. People reach out n show respect and wish me luck n a better future,” said Vadra.
Meanwhile, within hours after Vadra posting his intention to plunge into politics, posters have been raised in Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh which requests Robert Vadra to contest elections from Moradabad Lok Sabha constituency. ‘Robert Vadra ji you are welcome to contest elections from Moradabad Lok Sabha constituency’ seen in Moradabad.
Robert Vadra is accused of money laundering case and dubious land deal cases. He was recently summoned by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with these cases. He had applied for anticipatory bail in the court earlier this month after a fresh money laundering case was filed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). The case filed under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) against Skylight Hospitality firm owned by Vadra. The case is in relation to alleged financial irregularities in land deals in Gurgaon, Haryana in 2008.
