Robert Vadra, who is facing Enforcement Directorate (ED) investigation in money laundering and land grab cases, took to Facebook yet again on Sunday to vent out his frustration. In the latest one posted on his wall, the son-in-law of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi seems to be playing the victim card and calls all land grab charges against him ‘false’. He wrote about how he was harassed for hours on his visit to the Enforcement Directorate office. In the concluding lines of the post, he wrote: “All these years of experience n learning cannot be just wasted and should be put to better use... once all these accusations n allegations are over, I feel I should dedicate a larger role in serving the people....”

This is what Vadra posted on his Facebook wall:

More than a decade of different governments being after me, using n highlighting my name to divert real issues of the country. 
People of the country gradually realised this Modus n knew there was no truth in any of these allegations. People reach out n show respect n wish me luck n a better future. 
I sustained n kept strong by learning from the children I helped. From the blind school to mother Teresa’s missions, to serving at orphanages n when visiting different faiths n places of worship, n feeding hungry ppl outside hospitals, temples.
Disaster managements n sending help to Kerala, Nepal and other places too, were a satisfying n learning experience. 
Now with my visits to the Enforcement Directorate in Delhi n Rajasthan, almost 8 visits, of many hours and since I have always adhered to rules n surely not above the law, I have been a person to learn from every event I go through. 
The years n 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 make smaller changes possible by me, in their areas n when they got to know me, the genuine love, affection n respect I earned was humbling ...
All these years of experience n learning cannot be just wasted and should be put to better use... once all these accusations n allegations are over, I feel I should dedicate a larger role in serving the people.... 🙏

Vadra, the husband of AICC general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, had on Saturday moved an application in a Delhi court, seeking the copy of case-related documents with the central agency. Special judge Arvind Kumar posted the matter for February 25. The application was moved through senior advocate KTS Tulsi.
