New Delhi: Posters showing Robert Vadra`s face along with Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and party vice-president Rahul Gandhi during the party's `Save Democracy March` on Friday triggered rumours of the businessman finally entering the murky waters of politics.

However, it later became clear that the posters were reportedly put up by a Congress worker and Gandhi loyalist without sanction from the party.

In response to the poster with Vadra`s face being used in the march, the BJP called the `Loktantra Bachao Yatra` (democracy march) a `dynasty march`, adding it is a march to save the dynasty from extinction.

 

 

"It`s an irony that the Congress Party is calling this as a democracy march. Rather than calling it a democracy march what is evident is and what the Congress Party should be calling it is a `dynasty march`.

Please look around the march and you would find the hoardings and posters of a single family. You would see Vadra ji, Sonia ji, Vadra ji everywhere. So, definitely it is a dynasty march. It is a march to save the dynasty from extinction," BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra told ANI.

The Congress president`s son-in-law had while talking exclusively with ANI last month hinted that he may enter politics.

"I would not say never, let`s see what future has in store for me," he said when asked whether he would take the plunge into active politics.

Vadra has in the past campaigned for his brother-in-law Rahul Gandhi and his mother-in-law Sonia Gandhi in Uttar Pradesh but never made campaign speeches or taken part in political meetings.
