Robert Vadra, husband of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, stated that the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty has worked hard to garner foreign support for the country.
Businessman Robert Vadra has stated that India’s hosting of the G20 Summit is a “proud moment,” noting that major events have been conducted in the past and that the Modi administration has learned from the Congress party and the Nehru-Gandhi family. In an interview with ANI, Vadra, husband of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, stated that the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty has worked hard to garner foreign support for the country.
“I congratulate all the guests who came for the G20 Summit. It’s a proud moment. I remember when Indraji was instrumental in holding such events and Priyanka’s family and the Gandhi family have always done a lot to bring international support to our country and will continue doing it…Rahul instrumental…I’m proud of them (the leaders and delegates) being here…and how they will be involved in our country. I wish them the best and I’m sure the G20 will be a success,” Vadra was quoted by ANI in its report.
When questioned about Congress leader Shashi Tharoor’s comments that the G20 declaration was a diplomatic victory, Vadra remarked, “I definitely see that.” “As I said, the Modi government has learnt from Mrs Indira Gandhi and the Gandhi family and the Congress who have always helped all international support and has had events as such… Let’s not forget that,” he said.
“I welcome all the delegates and everybody who came to India and I’m sure their trip is a success, and I’m sure many more events will happen like this ahead as well. My family is also always there to support all the delegates and people internationally as a proud Indian,” he added. Shashi Tharoor informed ANI that the Delhi Declaration was unquestionably a diplomatic win for India.
“It’s a good achievement because right until the G20 summit was being convened, the widespread expectation was there would be no agreement and, therefore, a joint communique might not be possible, and that we might have to end up with a chairman’s summary,” he had said. He did, however, mention the BJP’s efforts to “instrumentalize the G20 as something that would turn out to be an asset for them.” The G20 Summit, which took place in the national capital on September 9 and 10, was universally regarded as a major success.
During the Summit, India, the United States, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, France, Germany, Italy, and the European Union signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the India-Middle East-Europe Economic Corridor, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi also unveiled the Global Biofuels Alliance (GBA). When questioned about the government’s push to use ‘Bharat’ instead of ‘India’ during the Summit, Vadra said the BJP-led government is interested in rebranding.
“We should not bring everything about a title but I know this government will retitle every road and every institution if it is named by the minorities. We are a large country, we have a very large population. We have diverse cultures and heritage. We should respect all faiths. We should not have religion-based politics and we should not be trivial in retitling names, and you know, institutions and roads,” he said.
In response to another question, he stated that the people of the country desire for a change. “This new alliance that’s come along is called INDIA. We’ll give them (the BJP) a good fight and we will be strong and we will take the word of the people of India which are hidden by this government. We are supported by the people of this country. And the good future will be by INDIA, the group headed by Rahul and the other prominent leaders and 2024 will be a good year for the new collaboration,” he stated.
