Priyanka Gandhi, who formally joined politics before last year’s national election as Congress general secretary in charge of Uttar Pradesh, has firmly defended her husband in controversies linked to land deals in Haryana and Rajasthan.
48-year-old Priyanka Gandhi, who is frequently compared to her grandmother Indira Gandhi, a former prime minister and Congress icon, failed to salvage the Congress in the 2019 election and could do nothing to stop even her brother Rahul Gandhi’s defeat in his long-time constituency Amethi in UP.
Robert Vadra faces allegations of corruption in land deals and has been held up repeatedly by the ruling BJP as a prime example of Congress corruption and nepotism.
Priyanka Gandhi has always shown her disdain for the BJP’s attacks by rooting for him, with gestures like dropping him off at the Enforcement Directorate for his questioning in February last year and by making joint public appearances with him.
In the Delhi election on February 8, the Vadras were joined by son Raihan, 19, who debuted before the media and spoke about his first voting experience.
