To a question about joining active politics, Robert Vadra said that he has some plans and will soon start working in this direction.
Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s brother-in-law Robert Vadra on Monday responded to reports of his political debut. Speaking to reporters in Delhi, Vadra said that he has some plans and will soon start working in this direction. Vadra, however, said that his priority is to rid himself of the baseless allegations levelled against him by different governments in the recent past.
“First, I need to absolve from baseless accusations and allegations. But yes, I will start working on it. There is no hurry. People need to feel that I can make a change… All in time,” news agency ANI quoted him as saying.
Vadra is facing the heat from different agencies for possessing properties in the country and overseas through illegal means. He has appeared before the Enforcement Directorate in Delhi and Jaipur on many occasions in February.
