I don’t need Priyanka to enhance my life: Robert Vadra


New Delhi: Saying that he was capable of withstanding pressures both political and otherwise because of the strong support of his family, businessman Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Congress President Sonia Gandhi said, ” I am born and brought up here, would never leave my country, no pressure, even if I am humiliated. No matter what the government says, I have the ability to sustain and to absorb. I have a very strong and good family which gives me strength.”

In an exclusive interview to ANI, Vadra who has often played a secondary role to his wife in the social and political life said, “I don’t need my wife Priyanka to enhance my life, I have enough, I have always had enough. My father gave me enough. I have been educated enough to sustain in all types of situations.”

When asked whether he would take the plunge into active politics, Vadra said, “I would not say never, let’s see what future has in store for me.”

Robert Vadra has campaigned for his brother-in-law Rahul Gandhi and his mother-in-law Sonia Gandhi in Uttar Pradesh but has never made campaign speeches or taken part in political meetings.

When asked whether he planned to change that strategy, Vadra replied, “When people will call for me, when they think I can make some change, then only will I think of joining politics. I understand my responsibilities. I know with which family I am associated, what they have done for generations. I have to make sure that I respect it.”

Asserting that the people of the nation are wise enough to comprehend the veracity of the present circumstances enveloping the country, Robert Vadra on Thursday said that in the near future the Prime Minister Narendra Modi led- Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government “will witness a major revolt.”
Vadra said, “I wish the government all the best, but I think people will revolt against it as they know what is right and what is wrong.”

He further said, “We are a diverse nation and have to be neutral in all the spheres and treat people equally regardless of their religion. We have to learn to accept all sorts of opinions.”

Speaking about freedom to express opinions in campuses and elsewhere, Vadra said, ” I don’t say go against the nation. I am a proud Indian and I will abide by the norms but at the same time I have thoughts, I have ideology. I have the right to decide (what is) wrong and right. We can’t dictate to the youth. They are our future. We have to listen to them, understand them but we cannot threaten them or intimidate them.”
