Arvind Kejriwal widened his attack on India’s first son-in-law, demanding a thorough probe into how an ordinary chap like Robert Vadra, with such a weak balance sheet of personal assets and low human capital, could make Priyanka fall for him.
“Vadra’s sweet-heart deal with DLF raises many questions but what makes no sense whatsoever is how a petty brass trader from Moradabad, who looks more like Priyanka’s chauffer than her significant other, could patao a Nehru-Gandhi scion and marry into India’s most powerful political family. We demand that Vadra come clean on this,” thundered the feisty Magsaysay award winner, during a televised press conference.
Surprisingly, Kejriwal’s latest tirade has the support of not just the Opposition but even the Congress. “Kejri ji ne muh ki baat cheen li. Even the Congress wants to know how an average dude from Moradabad managed to become a Nehru-Gandhi damaad and therefore our boss. We will extend full support to Kejri and his team to get to the bottom of this matter,” said Congress spokesperson, Rashid Alvi.
Agreeing it was indeed bizarre, Union Finance Minister Chidambaram said the Government will initiate a probe even though it is a private transaction involving two individuals and refused to give Vadra a clean chit in this matter. “Certainly, Vadra’s acquisition of Priyanka was disproportionate to all his known sources of talent and Vadra needs to give a full account of his courtship to the public. I have directed the CBI to initiate investigations and interrogate Vadra,” disclosed the Finance Minister.
Robert has lashed out at the latest round of attacks, saying Kejriwal was plain jealous of his over-achievement. “Yes, my moustache is not as thick as Arvind’s, I’m not as smart as he is and I never went to IIT, but I still managed to patao Priyanka through sheer hard work, sincerity and some dumb luck. I have nothing to hide. My rise to the top continues to inspire mango men in banana republics all over the world,” wrote Vadra on his Facebook Wall.
CBI director, A P Singh, said that this particular case will be difficult to crack. “Women do strange things but Priyanka getting hitched to this Vadra chap is straight out of ‘Ripley’s believe it or not’. We’ll try our best to discern how he managed to pull off the heist of the century,” he disclosed with wide-eyed incredulity.
