NEW DELHI: Robert Vadra, the brother-in-law of Congress president Rahul Gandhi, has hinted at joining politics.
In a Facebook post, Vadra said, “All these years of experience and learning cannot be just wasted and should be put to better use … Once all these accusations and allegations are over, I feel I should dedicate a larger role in serving the people.”
“Years and months I spent campaigning, working in different parts of the country, but mainly in UP, gave me a feeling to do more for people and make smaller changes possible by me, in areas and when they got to know me, the genuine love, affection, respect I earned was humbling,” he said.
Vadra’s wife Priyanka Gandhi made her debut into active politics earlier this month and was appointed Congress general secretary.
Forty-nine-year-old Vadra, who has been repeatedly questioned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the recent past in connection with money laundering and land grab cases, accused the government of targeting him to divert the attention from the real issues confronting the country.
“More than a decade of different governments being after me, using and highlighting my name to divert real issues of the country (sic),” he said.
