Robert Vadra, the businessman son-in-law of Sonia Gandhi, today declared that he could enter politics if “people want”, a statement that his wife Priyanka attempted to downplay shortly afterward.
Vadra emerged unexpectedly into the election limelight, addressing meetings and flagging off two bike rallies on his own in Amethi. He has in the past generally been seen in the company of Priyanka or Rahul Gandhi, and has remained largely in the background.
Vadra told reporters in response to a question, “If people want, then I can come into politics”.
Asked about the possibility of Priyanka entering politics, Vadra said, “This is the time of Rahul Gandhi, after that the time of Priyanka Gandhi will come in the future, and also of other family members.”
This could turn into a Rabri-Lalu stuff... if you cant win some election push your spouse and then remote control.
Seems like the Raj-shahi days are not over since the Gand-hi parivaar is becoming desperate for keeping seat in the family.
I had been talking to a few journalists, they predict a downfall of Rahul Gandhi, people in Con-Gress are silently waiting for it. People of India aren't fools, or at least they cannot be fooled forever. Take Bihar for an example.
Muslim vote block has been neuteralized after the Rushdie episode. Congress can no longer take their support for granted. Mayawati is down but not out, she still enjoys massive support from her traditional constituency. SP will gain, so will BJP, thanks to Uma Bharati. Thats the assessment. Congress will gain, but not by much.
Rober Vadra - the name and fame of this intellectually low dubious character speaks volume of the rot in our system and other peripheries such as the media! Guys such as Antonia, Raul and Robert are the 'eye candy' of the - corrupt, media and lobbiests - due their inherent traits such as being - low on intellect (coupled with low inquisitivity), oblivious to the realities of the country, concentrating on easy money through kickbacks from every govt. deals (satisfied with decent commissions as total sum collect is huge due to high turnover and volumes), spineless and cheap to the core, and mafia mentality due to Italian connection and having extended Italian family members and friends involved in looting this poverty stricken country of fools who vote them in!
The sheer arrogance of this man, if people want I will enter politics. First of all let us add up the people who want him to enter politics. Thanks and no thanks it is better that you rake in crores due to being the son in law of the Gandi family.
Rahul Gandhi had announced in his press conference yesterday or day before that Congress will not have post poll alliance with any party. That would prevent any alliance with SP, pre-poll of course they're having alliance with RLD.
