New Delhi: Robert Vadra on Monday said Priyanka was a ‘perfect wife’ and ‘the best mother’ to their children and it is time to hand her to the people of India.
“Please keep her safe,” Vadra said, doffing his hat to his ‘best friend’ over the years and making her cautious against the prevailing ‘vindictive and vicious’ political atmosphere.
The brother-in-law of Congress chief Vadra’s emotive Facebook post came as Priyanka Gandhi participated in a road show in Lucknow on Monday.
In his Facebook post Vadra said: “My Best wishes to you P, on your new journey of working in Uttar Pradesh and serving the people of India. You have been my best friend, a perfect wife, and the best mother to our children.”
Priyanka Gandhi married Vadra in 1997. The couple has two children.
Vadra is currently being quizzed by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with money laundering to purchase assets abroad.
Vadra is also expected to make a fresh appearance before the ED on Tuesday in Jaipur in connection with a probe into an alleged land scam in the Rajasthan’s border town of Bikaner.
“Congratulations P… always by your side in every phase of your life. Give it your best,” Vadra said in a Facebook post.
“He is my husband, he is my family…I support my family,” Priyanka had said while dropping her husband at ED office three days ago.
