Controversial businessman Robert Vadra congratulated his wife Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday (23 January) for being appointed the Congress general secretary from Uttar Pradesh East, Hindustan Times has reported.
Soon after Priyanka’s appointment, husband Robert Vadra posted on Facebook, “Congratulations P... always by your side in every phase of your life.
Give it your best”.
He attached a photo of the couple in a collage which also contained the Congress party’s logo.
Besides Priyanka, senior Congress leader from Madhya Pradesh, Jyotiraditya Scindia, has been appointed general secretary of Uttar Pradesh West. Veteran leader Ghulam Nabi Azad has been relieved from his role as general secretary for Uttar Pradesh and will, from now on, be AICC general secretary for Haryana.
K C Venugopal has been appointed the national general secretary of the party.
Robert Vadra is currently facing heat from investigative agencies over his alleged involvement in various land scams.
He and his mother Maureen Vadra have been directed by the Rajasthan High Court to appear before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on 12 February, in connection with the Bikaner land scam.
The ED had earlier filed a fresh money laundering case against Vadra in connection with financial and other irregularities in land deals in Haryana’s Gurgaon back in 2008.
