Days after Congress General Secretary Priyanka Vadra’s husband Robert Vadra had hinted at joining politics, posters urging him to contest from Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh have come up. The posters which were put up by Ghaziabad youth congress near Kaushambi metro station read: “Ghaziabad kare pukaar, Robert Vadra abki baar,” roughly translated as “Ghaziabad urges Robert Vadra to contest elections from Ghaziabad constituency”.

Earlier, similar posters had emerged in Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh, which requested him to contest elections from Moradabad Lok Sabha constituency. ‘Robert Vadra ji you are welcome to contest elections from Moradabad Lok Sabha constituency’ were seen in Moradabad.

Almost a month after his wife Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who is also the sister of Congress President, Rahul Gandhi, had been roped in as the Congress General Secretary in UP (East), Robert Vadra, who is facing probes in land deal irregularities had hinted that he could also be taking the plunge this election season.

In a loaded 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”.

He had also hinted that if and when he chooses to contest he might do it from Moradabad. “I was born in Moradabad and have spent childhood in Uttar Pradesh and I think I understand that area. However, I can stay anywhere and I believe I will be able to understand them.”

However, on March 6 while speaking to ANI Vadra vowed not to join politics until his name is cleared in the money laundering cases.

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 last 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. The ED had recently attached Vadra’s properties worth Rs 4.62 crores in the Bikaner land scam case.
