Coming out in strong defence of Robert Vadra, Priyanka Gandhi alleged, on Tuesday, that attempt is being made to malign her husband but ultimately truth will prevail.
Addressing a rally in support of her mother and Congress candidate Sonia Gandhi she said, “Lot of harsh words are used for my family, my husband, I feel sad. I feel sad not for myself but because someone is being defamed and truth is not coming out.”
“I tell my children that truth will come out one day….I have learnt from Indiraji how to bear all this…when there is truth is the heart and when the intent is right then a shield forms inside us and the more we do good the stronger it becomes,” she said, adding, “I will fight with all my might.”
Priyanka also ruled that the elections are not being fought on issues of development and aspirations of the youth of the country.
Appealing for votes, she said, “I have no doubt that you will support Sonia ji, it is not because we have a long standing relationship but don’t vote for Sonia ji, you should give your vote for the country, for the future of your children.”
Vote for a country where people love each other, she added.
“My mother wasn’t born, but you’ll accepted her. That’s the beauty of this country,” she said.
Priyanka’s strong defence of her husband comes at a time when Robert Vadra’s business deals are increasingly being put under the scanner by the BJP and the media.
BJP leaders like Uma Bharti have even announced that Vadra will have to go to jail if the BJP comes to power.
Party’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi has also often targeted Vadra by calling him ‘damaad’ and ‘jija’ while alleging that Vadra had made millions through largesse of the Haryana government under Congress’ Bhupinder Singh Hooda. However, Modi had later said in an interview that his government will not be vindictive towards any individual
Last week, American daily Wall Street Journal had published a damning report on Vadra’s shady business deals.
