Venkaiah Naidu evades question on Robert Vadra
Panaji, Oct 17 (IANS) Asked if the BJP would take action against Congress president Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra if voted to power, senior party leader M. Venkaiah Naidu Thursday refused to commit to any such action. Vadra has been accused of involvement in dubious land deals in Gurgaon, an upscale Haryana district which is part of the National Capital Region. Naidu, who is in Goa on a two-day visit, was speaking to reporters at the state BJP headquarters ahead of a stock-taking meeting related to the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. In response to a query from a reporter, he said: "Our priority is first controlling prices, stopping corruption. We don't have anything against any one person." Arvind Kejriwal was right when he commented that the relationship between the Congress and the BJP was of the husband - wife type. They are sleeping partners in their efforts to loot the nation. How can the BJP take action on Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Sonia Gandhi? If they do, the the Congress will take action on Atal Behari Vajpayee's foster son-in-law who too was an extra-constitutional head during Vajpayee's reign. You scratch my back and I will scratch your's.
