However, later in the first week of March, he said he will enter the politics only after he gets ‘clean chit’ in the Money Laundering Cases which are under Investigation by the Enforcement Directorate.

However, the Bharatiya Janata Party leader and its nominee against Rahul Gandhi from Amethi Smriti Irani took a jibe at Robert Vadra’s announcement of campaigning for the party. She said as quoted by ANI, ‘I would only like to say this that Robert Vadra can go wherever he wants, but the people are advised to keep a close watch on their lands,” she said.
