Chowkidar has brought ‘shahensha’ to jail doors, will put him behind bars: PM takes a dig at Robert Vadra

He asserted those who have looted the country 'will have to pay back.'

Prime Minister Narendra Modi took an apparent dig at Robert Vadra and said he was close to being put behind bars. Addressing a rally in Haryana’s Fatehabad on Wednesday, PM promised if voted back to power, the NDA government will ensure the ‘shahenshah’ who looted farmers, is thrown behind bars within the next five years.

“This chowkidar has taken the person, who looted farmers, to court. He is making the rounds of ED and courts to take bail. He used to think he is ‘shahenshah’ but now is nervous. I’ve already taken him to the jail door. Give blessings and I’ll put him in jail within the next 5 years,” the PM remarked, while the crowd cheered on. He asserted those who have looted the country ‘will have to pay back.’

Though Modi did not take any names in his speech, he made an obvious reference to UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra, who is currently facing trial in a land deal case.

Vadra has been facing charges for his involvement in corruption-marred land deals in Haryana’s Gurugram. The transactions in Gurugram deal had taken place when Congress was in power in the state and Bhupinder Singh Hooda was the Chief Minister.

He is also accused of money laundering and Enforcement Directorate (ED) is investigating him in connection with the purchase of a London-based property at 12, Bryanston Square. Estimated at a staggering 1.9 million pounds, Vadra is believed to own this property.

Earlier, ED had sought custodial interrogation of Robert Vadra in this matter. In his defence, Vadra had moved the court appealing to quash the ED case against him. he also demanded certain provisions of PMLA be declared unconstitutional.

However, the troubles only seem to escalate for Rahul Gandhi’s brother-in-law Vadra. In February, ED had attached Vadra’s company, M/s Sky Light Hospitality (P) Ltd worth Rs 4.62 crore. In April last year, ED had attached the properties of Vadra’ aide Jaiprakash Bagarwa in connection with Bikaner Land Scam case. In Bikaner Land Scam case, the land was allegedly allotted in the name of non-existent individuals by the State government officials in collusion with some fraudulent individuals, including real estate developers.

The PM, in his address, launched a scathing attack on the Congress party by highlighting their corrupt policies and the ecosystem it adhered to in the past decades of their rule.

The PM was blistering in his attack. He criticized the Congress party over the 1984 anti-Sikh riots and blamed it for benefitting the tainted involved in committing the sin. He went on to accuse them of not putting in enough efforts during independence to ensure that Kartarpur Sahib is a part of India.

He divulged that Congress is seen backing the ‘tukde, tukde gang’, and aims to revoke the sedition law and Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA), which will give full freedom to stone pelters and those who support terrorists and Naxals.

Modi switched topics speaking effortlessly about everything the Congress party has been complying to in its divisive plan to break the country for its personal benefits.

You can catch the PM’s full speech in the rally here:

Earlier we had reported that Vadra was being questioned by ED in money laundering and other cases against him. According to reports, ED had confronted him with the detail of Sanjay Bhandari’s interrogation by the Income Tax department in 2016, which show that Vadra has a link with the fugitive arms dealer.
