Have nothing to hide, so will fight this till they stop falsely accusing me!” Prime Minister Narendra Modi had recently taken a swipe at Robert Vadra: “Both (Dogra and Jaitley) took their own routes in public life. “Otherwise we all know what embarrassment sons-in-law have become for their in-laws nowadays.”

Seeking to counter the opposition attack, BJP Chief whip Arjun Ram Meghwal told the Chair about his notice of breach of privilege against Congress chief Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra.
He alleged that Vadra has demeaned parliamentarians in his Facebook post. “He cannot do that…nobody can do that,” Meghwal shouted amid din. Meanwhile, the Congress asked the Speaker Sumitra Mahajan why BJP lawmakers were allowed to carry and wave placards in the house while raising anti-Vadra slogans.
The BJP and the Congress are at loggerheads over various controversies which include the Vyapam scam, the Lalit Modi controversy and the death of witnesses in the Asaram Bapu case. They’ve been demanding the resignation of Vasundhara Raje and Shivraj Chouhan.
