PM Narendra Modi attacks 'damaad' Robert Vadra over corruption

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Monday, took a dig at Congress president's son-in-law Robert Vadra while stressing that the NDA has provided graft-free governance.

Addressing the Indian community at the packed SAP Centre in San Jose, California, Modi said, "In our country it doesn't take much for allegations to come up against politicians... Someone made 50 crores, someone's son made 250 crores, (someone's) daughter made 500 crores, (someone's) damaad (son-in-law) made 1000 crores..."

Switching on to a question answer mode, he asked the audience "Is the country not disappointed?" The people replied "yes".

"Is there not anger against corruption," he asked. "Yes," people shouted.

Modi then asked, "I am standing before you. Tell me if there is any allegation against me." "No," people shouted.

He then told the crowd that he is giving every minute of his life in the service of the nation and he would live and die for the country.

While Modi's reference to sons and daughters of politicians being corrupt is seen as a reference to culture of corruption in the country, the reference to son-in-law is seen as a barb at alleged land deals entered into by Vadra with the some state governments.
