 robert vadra

Robert Vadra was born to Rajendra and Maureen Vadra on 18 may 1969. Rajendra Vadra hails from Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh and Maureen was of Scottish origin (her maiden name was McDonagh).Rajendra was a resident of Civil Lines area of Moradabad and ran a brass and wood handicrafts business. The Vadra family has claimed to be a supporter of the Congress Party but Rajendra's older brother, Om Prakash, had donated his property to a trust in Moradabad. The family is originally from Sialkot, Pakistan, and Rajendra's father moved to India at the time of partition. Robert had two siblings, Richard and Michelle. Vadra was estranged from his father, who had "expressed displeasure" with Robert's marriage with Priyanka Vadra.Robert Vadra issued a public notice in 2001, stating that his father, Rajender, and brother, Richard, were "duping" people by promising jobs at the Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee and other favours. Rajendra later threatened to file a defamation suit against his son.

In an exclusive interview to Times of India in 2010, Vadra, said he would join politics only when he felt he could make a difference. "There is a time and place for everything. If I feel that I know enough about this line (politics), if I can dedicate enough time and effort to it, when my children are grown up and if I can make a difference, then why not?". Vadra added, "I don't even indulge in the thought at the moment. I enjoy my children, my business, my fitness regime and other pursuits." Vadra also revealed that he was under great pressure to contest from Sultanpur in Uttar Pradesh in the 2009 Lok Sabha elections but refused. "There was huge demand for me to stand (from Sultanpur) but I was clear that it was not my place. I was being recognized only because of the family."Robert Vadra was also voted Delhi's “Style Icon” of 2011

NEW DELHI: Rajendra Vadra, father of Robert Vadra, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's husband, was found dead at a guest house in Yusuf Sarai area on Friday. A source requesting anonymity claimed that it was suspected to be a case of suicide as Vadra was found with an ironing cord around his neck. Police officials, off the record, initially said the death was caused by a heart attack, but later clammed up. No official statement was forthcoming from either the family or the police.

Another tragedy in Vadra family

NEW DELHI: Richard Vadra, estranged brother of Priyanka Gandhi's husband Robert Vadra, reportedly committed suicide in Moradabad on Friday.

The tragedy comes two years after the Vadra family lost Michelle — Robert and Richard's sister — in a road accident on the Delhi-Jaipur highway in April, 2001. No details are available on what happened in Moradabad. Robert Vadra refused to comment on his brother's death when contacted by TNN.

In January 2002, Robert Vadra placed ads in newspapers, declaring that he had nothing to do with his father, Rajinder, and brother, Richard, and that any attempts by them to gain favours by pretending to act on his behalf should be disregarded. The notice was issued on Robert's behalf by advocate Arun Bhardwaj.  The Congress directed all its CMs, PCC bosses and CLP leaders to let it be known to "one and all" that Robert Vadra had severed ties with his father and brother, and "no favour sought by them in Robert's name should be entertained."

It is believed that Robert's decision to snap ties with his father and brother followed reports that Richard had approached a Congress CM over a contract for a major project, using Priyanka's name.

Another Congress leader claimed that Rajinder Vadra had called on him for a favour and sent his visiting card with "father-in-law of Priyanka" boldly pencilled on it. While Robert and Priyanka attended Michelle's funeral and shared the family's grief, no attempt was apparently made to resolve the family feud.

While Robert is the proprietor of Artex Exports, through which he sells costume jewellery, Richard ran an independent export business. Rajinder Vadra, separated from his wife, Maureen (nee McDonagh) is an exporter of metal handicrafts and operates from Amar Colony.
