New Delhi: Robert Vadra and his mother Maureen arrived at the Enforcement Directorate (ED) office in Jaipur on Tuesday morning for questioning in connection with Bikaner land case probe. A few hours later, Maureen was allowed to leave the ED office.
‘Priyanka Gandhi Zindabad’ and ‘Chowkidaar Chor Hai’ slogans were raised outside the ED office in Jaipur as Vadra and his mother arrived. Priyanka Gandhi Vadra had also accompanied her husband and mother-in-law in the morning.
Vadra, who has already been grilled by the ED on three occasions for his involvement in a money laundering case, has lashed out at the Centre through a Facebook post. He called the government vindictive over ED’s summons to his 75-year-old mother. According to reports, Vadra will have to answer 55 questions drafted by the ED.
“So here we are my 75-year-old mother n me in Jaipur to depose in front of the Enforcement Directorate. Not understanding the lows of this vindictive government to be harassing a senior citizen, who the world knows has lost her daughter in a car crash, her ailing son to diabetes, and her husband as well. Three deaths n all I did was to ask her to spend time with me in my office, so I can look after her and we both could grieve on our losses while spending time together. Now she is being accused, maligned and called to be interrogated, for spending time in my office. Since I have already been interrogated for 3 days in Delhi’ headquarters, of the Enforcement Directorate. If there was an issue or any illegality, which was found by the government, why did it take them 4 years n 8 months, to call me a month before campaigning begins for the General elections? Do they think people in India do not view it as an election gimmick ?! As I always have adhered to rules and overall being a disciplined person, I have the ability to sustain any amount of hours of questioning and having nothing to hide, I will answer every question with respect n dignity. This too shall pass and will make me stronger. What goes around comes around. God is with us!!” Vadra said in a Facebook post.
