The government, which today dropped Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra’s name from the ‘no-frisking’ list, said that he was never a VIP.

“Vadra went ahead and posted on his Facebook page that he wanted to be removed from the list, what choice did the government have after that? But he should have written us a formal letter rather than publishing his demand publically,” Minister of State for Civil Aviation Mahesh Sharma said.

Taking a jibe at Robert Vadra, Sharma said that he did not know what the fuss was all about as the former had never been a VIP in the first place.

He further said that Robert Vadra was on the ‘no-frisking’ list only when he was travelling with the Gandhi family and never individually.

“There have also been instances when Vadra misused this facility,” Sharma added.

Vadra had earlier taken to Facebook to target the Centre over the VIP ‘no-frisking’ list.

“Plan to visit every terminal in the Airports in India and add a white tape on my name from the VVIP list and my signature on top !! So look out,” Robert Vadra wrote in his status message.

      Misusing facilities or loop in laws is common in our country. Till recently Supreme Court banned using Red Beacon lights by others except President, PM, Chief Justice etc, we have seen even father of a local Corporator fixing red beacon light on his car. Then imagine the dirty mindset of those who have no power in Central government. Best option to ban people from misusing loop s in law and put such people behind bars at least one or two individuals so that other such people think ten times before making adventures.

          If they have done that without him saying so these pressutes would have created mayhem for their favorite jiju.
