As the chants got louder, police had to intervene and escort Vadra out. Vadra told media, “I have come here to seek blessings and want no politics at the temple. We are very happy to come here with the family, got good blessing and we feel very good. Political things should not be done in the temple.” Also Read - WHO Chief Thanks PM Modi For 'Continued Support' to Global COVID-19 Response
In a Facebook post, Vadra wrote that politics was at an all-time low with reference to PM Modi’s allegation that Vadra’s father-in-law and former prime minister Raji Gandhi used naval aircraft carrier INS Viraat for a vacation.
He added that it was terrible to attack “our assassinated PM Shri 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,” he said in his Facebook post.
