Posters featuring Robert Vadra appear at Congress march

New Delhi, May 6 (IANS) Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra made an entry on posters flaunted in the party’s Save Democracy March here on Friday. The posters were reportedly put up by Jagdeesh Sharma, a Gandhi family loyalist, in the vicinity of Jantar Mantar, the venue of the march.

This was the first time the 47-year-old businessman appeared on the party’s posters which also featured pictures of Congress’s top leadership — Sonia and Rahul Gandhi.

Ironically, Vadra, who had described India as a “banana republic” at the peak of Anna Hazare’s agitation in 2012, appeared on these posters with the slogan of ‘Save Democracy’.

Vadra had courted controversies in the past for his allegedly dubious land deals in Haryana which are now being probed by the Justice S.N. Dhingra Commission.

Meanwhile, the Bharatiya Janata Party described the Congress’s march as ‘Save Dynasty March’.

“It’s an irony that the Congress Party is calling this as a democracy march. The posters reflect Gandhi family’s dominance over the party. They are a complement for them. If anyone looks around the march then one would find hoardings and posters of a single family,” Union Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said.
