Robert Vadra, the businessman husband of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, on Sunday hinted at a “larger role” in public service after his name is cleared from the alleged money laundering cases probed by the Enforcement Directorate.

In a Facebook post, Vadra recalled the time he had dedicated to serving the people in times of distress and the years spent campaigning across the country, but mainly in Uttar Pradesh.

“All these years of experience n (sic) learning cannot be just wasted and should be put to better use... once all these accusations n (sic) allegations are over, I feel I should dedicate a larger role in (sic) serving the people....” he said.

Vadra’s wife, Priyanka entered active politics after her appointment as AICC General Secretary in-charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh.

“The years n (sic) months that I spent campaigning n working in different parts of the country, but mainly in UP, gave me a feeling to do more for the people n (sic) make smaller changes possible by me, in their areas n (sic) when they got to know me, the genuine love, affection n (sic) respect I earned was humbling,” Vadra said.

Vadra has been questioned by the Enforcement Directorate on several occasions in the last fortnight in at least two cases -- one involving his alleged links to a defence broker and another related to an alleged land scam in Rajasthan.

Vadra’s mother Maureen too was questioned by the ED at its office in Jaipur recently in connection with the alleged land scam in Bikaner in Rajasthan.

“Now with my visits to the Enforcement Directorate in Delhi n (sic) Rajasthan, almost 8 visits, of many hours and since I have adhered to the rules n (sic) surely not above the law, I have been a person to learn from every event I go through,” he said.

Vadra claimed that different governments had tried to malign him by highlighting his name to divert real issues facing the country.

“People in the country gradually realised this Modus n (sic) knew there was no truth in any of these allegations,” Vadra said adding that people have always treated him with respect and wished him luck for a better future.
