Bengaluru: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Prashant Bhushan on Saturday accused Robert Vadra, the son-in-law of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, of being guilty of misuse of power as he got upgrades on international sectors for himself and his family.
"He (Vadra) is clearly guilty of using his position and proximity to a powerful family in getting these free upgrades to his family," he told reporters here.
A magazine claimed yesterday that some officials, bureaucrats and other VIPs had "abused" their status to get free tickets and other facilities from a private airline in gross violation of service rules and propriety.
Bhushan also rapped the airline for giving these kind of upgrades to Vadra and other influential persons. "It is also the fault of the airlines which has been doing this. They should not be allowing such sort of misuse of power and proximity to a powerful family," he said.
"This only shows the kind of low moral standards of Vadra and the officials of the airline for upgrading him and his family without any charges," he said.
The magazine had alleged that Vadra had got several upgrades on international sectors for himself, one of his associates and his children and his mother.
