Robert Vadra, who is under the scanner of the Enforcement Directorate for money laundering made some statements suggesting that he may have admitted to his folly. He said that he was still around unlike the others who fled the country after making a lot of money and committing fraud. He pointed out that there were many people who had looted the country and fled, but he won't follow suit.
Ever since his wife Priyanka Gandhi Vadra came into active politics as the General Secretary of the Congress, she has been facing flak for her husband’s money laundering case.
Vadra told a leading news agency, "I'm in this country, there are people who have looted the country and run away, what about them? I'm always going to be in this country, I will not leave or be in active politics till I clear my name that is my promise."
Earlier, Vadra had hinted at joining the Congress and said that he might take part in active politics with his wife. This had sparked yet another row. A Delhi court had extended his Interim bail till March 19 in the money laundering case.
Vadra had filed an anticipatory bail application in the case linked to allegations of money laundering in the purchase of a London-based property at 12, Bryanston Square worth 1.9 million pounds. The property is allegedly owned by him.
