Barely a day after National Jija Robert Vadra hinted at joining politics, posters portraying him as a prospective Congress candidate from Moradabad Lok Sabha constituency came up in Uttar Pradesh.
“Robert Vadra ji, we welcome you to contest the 2019 Lok Sabha elections from the Moradabad constituency,” the poster put out by Moradabad Yuvak Congress read.
Vadra made his intentions clear via a post on his Facebook page – his preferred means of communication – through which he essentially claimed three things:
1. That multiple governments had attempted to malign him over the years, the most recent example being the numerous hours he has recently spent at the ED’s offices in New Delhi and Jaipur in connection with cases related to properties abroad, and in Bikaner respectively
2. That he has done a lot of good work in the social sphere over the years – something he showcased by posting numerous photos.
3. That he wishes to “dedicate a larger role in serving the people”, particularly considering his copious experience in campaign politics. He names Uttar Pradesh specifically as his preferred location.
Here is the full text of his post:-
More than a decade of different governments trying to malign me, using n highlighting my name to divert real issues of the country. People of the country gradually realised this Modus n knew there was no truth in any of these allegations. People reach out n show respect n wish me luck n a better future.
I sustained n kept strong by learning from the children I helped. From the blind school, to mother Teresa’s missions, to serving at orphanages n when visiting different faiths n places of worship, n feeding hungry ppl outside hospitals, temples.
Disaster managements n sending help to Kerala, Nepal and other places too, were a satisfying n learning experience.
Now with my visits to the Enforcement Directorate in Delhi n Rajasthan, almost 8 visits, of many hours and since I have always adhered to rules n surely not above the law, I have been a person to learn from every event I go through.
The years n months that I spent campaigning n working in different parts of the country, but mainly in UP, gave me a feeling to do more for the people n make smaller changes possible by me, in their areas n when they got to know me, the genuine love, affection n respect I earned was humbling …
All these years of experience n learning cannot be just wasted and should be put to better use… once all these accusations n allegations are over, I feel I should dedicate a larger role in serving the people…. 🙏
BJP Mocked Robert Vadra After His Post Went Viral
BJP leader MA Naqvi today said the joker that was missing from the “P-R political circus” (referring to Priyanka and Rahul Gandhi) is now starting to make his entry.
“Yeh jo P-R (Priyanka-Rahul) siyasi circus hai, us P-R siyasi circus mein joker ki entry baaki thi aur joker ki entry ab dikhayi pad rahi hai,” MA Naqvi said.
On its official Twitter handle, the BJP has hailed Vadra as the Congress’ Prime Ministerial candidate for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, adding via a hashtag that he is ready.
