Controversial businessman Robert Vadra who is the husband of Congress general secretary Priyanka Vadra was greeted by ‘Modi Modi’ chants when he paid a visit to the Mumba Devi Mandir in Mumbai, reports Times of India.
Vadra, who is under the scanner of investigation agencies for economic offences, offered his prayers at the temple. As soon as he arrived at the premises, a group of BJP supporters started chanting, "Modi, Modi" and "Bharat Mata Ki Jai".
Vadra, who also happens to be the brother-in-law of Congress president Rahul Gandhi was given tight security both inside and outside the temple. Reacting about the incident, Vadra said, "I have come here only to seek the blessings of the Goddess. I don't want any politics in the temple," to the reporters outside the temple.
Earlier on Friday, Vadra, defending his late father-in-law Rajiv Gandhi over the INS Viraat row, in his Facebook post said, "Politics at an all-time low. Desperate measures are visible. Hitting out at an assassinated Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi to mislead the people of India. We the family will strive for his vision, and the people of India will fight for his dignity and respect. It's only time for a respectful change in our country."
