  • Following Congress's thumping victory in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh, Robert Vadra said that the Modi dragged him for political blackmail
  • He also said that charges against him were totally false and politically motivated
  • He also said that Congress will come to form govern2019

Robert Vadra, whose offices were raided by the Enforcement Directorate last week over land and Defence deals, spoke on Wednesday about Congress's victory in the recent state polls.

"We will come in 2019. We will not be scared. We have the energy and support. People gave us mandate.

All raids are fake. They may use agencies, but we will not stop.The more you suppress, more we emerge. No matter how many agencies you will use. We are not scared. We are not on the wrong side. Everything is politically motivated.

Whenever Modi government failed, they took my name. See, I am smiling. I know I am not on the wrong side . Why should I be worried? I will not run like others. I am an Indian and I will take the pressure. I will cooperate with agencies but everything should happen lawfully. My kids are not happy. They ruined my office. I will not let them use me politically. People are with me and I will not run anywhere.

Charges against me are totally false and politically motivated. We have replied to every notice. But my family is under stress, mother is unwell, my premises was ransacked and locks broken. Everything should be done legally, we have always been cooperating.

Will not allow my name to be used for political blackmail, have always maintained that we will cooperate, but the process should be fair and legal. I am not running away or going to live in some other country."
