Posters welcoming Robert Vadra to contest the upcoming Lok Sabha polls from Moradabad constituency were seen in the Uttar Pradesh city on Monday, a day after he hinted at the possibility of joining politics in a Facebook post.
"Robert Vadra Ji, you are welcome to contest the election from the Moradabad Lok Sabha constituency," the posters read.
Vadra, the brother-in-law of Congress president Rahul Gandhi, has hinted at joining politics, a month after his wife Priyanka Gandhi made her debut in active politics and was appointed a general secretary in-charge of Uttar Pradesh East in the party.
In a Facebook post, Vadra said, "All these years of experience and learning cannot be just wasted and should be put to better use...Once all these accusations and allegations are over, I feel I should dedicate a larger role in serving the people."
The forty-nine-year-old Vadra, who has been repeatedly questioned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the recent past in connection with money laundering and land grab cases has accused the government of targeting him to divert attention from the real issues confronting the country.
