Robert Vadra Abki Baar: Poster seen in Ghaziabad

Delhi: Days after Robert Vadra, Congress President Rahul Gandhi's brother-in-law hinted at venturing into politics, posters were put up in Ghaziabad's Kaushambi that read: "Ghaziabad kare pukaar, Robert Vadra abki baar."

The posters were seen near Kaushambi metro station in Uttar Pradesh's Ghaziabad parliamentary constituency ahead of the Lok Sabha polls. The posters have been put up by Ghaziabad Youth Congress.

Similar posters inviting Robert Vadra to contest Lok Sabha elections from Uttar Pradesh's Moradabad had emerged.

Almost a month after the Congress party announced the political debut of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra as the Congress General Secretary in UP (East), her husband and businessman Robert Vadra indicated that he could also be taking the plunge this election season.

He had also hinted that if and when he chooses to contest he might do it from Moradabad. "I was born in Moradabad and have spent childhood in Uttar Pradesh and I think I understand that area. However, I can stay anywhere and I believe I will be able to understand them."

"I don't have to be in politics to help people of the country, but if by joining I can make a larger difference then why not," Vadra said when asked whether he would be joining politics.

On Wednesday (March 6), Robert Vadra, however, said he will not leave the country or take part in active politics till his name is cleared in the ongoing money laundering case.

Speaking to ANI, he said, "I am in this country, there are people who have looted the country and run away, what about them? I am always going to be in this country, I will not leave or be in active politics till I clear my name, that is my promise."
