"Congress vision is progressive, impartial...": Robert Vadra

New Delhi: Robert Vadra, a businessman and husband of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, on Monday urged the people to cast their vote for the Congress party, saying that the party's manifesto and vision are very "progressive and impartial."

In a social media message, Robert Vadra wrote, "Humble appeal to the public. Your one vote will change the fate of India. Therefore, in this election, choose justice. We have to unite and vote in favour of Congress. 'Haath Badlega Halaat'."

Posting a video message, Vadra said that Congress will ensure that promises turn into action and develop in every sector.

"Hello, fellow citizens, let's vote for change. Let's vote for democracy. The manifesto and vision of the Congress are very progressive, and impartial and it promises 100 per cent commitment towards the parament of India. Congress will ensure that promises turn into action and develop in every sector. You will see a happy India and a better India," he said in a video message.

Earlier, Robert Vadra hinted at joining politics as a Rajya Sabha member, saying that he would surely join active politics after some time.

Vadra said, "I do not want to come to politics to give a reply to anyone. I want to serve the people of the country, so maybe it is through the Rajya Sabha. I will keep working for the people across the country and will travel to Amethi, Raebareli, and Morabadad, as it makes me very happy to get their blessings. So I will surely join active politics after some time."
