Robert Vadra, businessman and husband of Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi, on Friday expressed his will to fight the elections. In a tweet, Vadra shared a picture of Congress workers holding placards of him and his wife Priyanka Gandhi. Vadra, who is facing allegations of the corruption by the ruling BJP, said that he will first make some changes in himself by working with the people and will make the announcement when the right time will come.
"They live by hope n I feel, I can change their area, by representing them. But I need to learn n understand more n earn my place, by working with them n making smaller changes myself, for them. The larger scale will be at the right time (sic)," his tweet read.
Although it was not clear from where he will contest but one of the pictures he shared was from the Congress party's Meerut office. Vadra was born in Western Uttar Pradesh' Moradabad which hints that he will likely contest from these two seats.

Recently, when Vadra announced that he will campaign for the Congress party across the entire country for the ensuingÂ Lok Sabha elections, Union Minister Arun Jaitley took a jab at him, saying,Â "I don't know if he (Vadra) will be an asset for the campaign of the Congress or for the campaign of the BJP."
In his response, Vadra shared an old picture of him enjoying with Arun Jaitley. "One must maintain respect n decorum in every situation. It shows strength of character n thatâ€™s what I was taught by my parents n in sports (sic)," his wrote along with the pictures of him and Jaitley.
Come every elections, the BJP raises the issue of Vadra's alleged illegal land deals in Haryana and Rajasthan, but the issue is put to rest when the elections are over. Recently, BJP president Amit Shah, taking a U-turn said that his party never promised to put the businessman behind bars, even as he repeated allegations of rampant corruption.
