New Delhi: Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra on Saturday criticised the Delhi government’s move to spare VIPs from the odd-even vehicle scheme, terming the move as a “complete hypocrisy”. His remark drew criticism from the BJP and the AAP.

“Odd and Even ways!! Creating parallel lists of exemption is complete hypocrisy,” Vadra posted in Facebook.

“If a law is implemented in the interest of the people, we all must adhere, and not be VIPs,” he added.

Reacting to Vadra’s comment, BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli said: “What an irony. Robert Vadra all his life took privileges for not being an ordinary citizen and he is making a comment about exemptions. I think it is an irony and it raises more questions about him.”

Attacking Vadra for his remark, Aam Aadmi Party spokesperson Ashutosh told media: “He is a symbol of hypocrisy. Robert Vadra has no right to speak on this subject like this because he himself is a VIP without a reason. He has been a celebrity all his life and enjoyed being a VIP.”

The Delhi government on Thursday announced the modalities of its ambitious traffic rationing scheme to battle record pollution levels in the city. The odd-even formula will be tried on a pilot basis for 15 days starting on January 1.(IANS)(image courtesy: bravejournal.in)

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government of being anti-Dalit and said his party will defeat the BJP in 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Gandhi, who led his party’s day-long fast at Rajghat to highlight atrocities against Dalits and other communities, said party workers were protesting against an ideology, a way of thinking.

Rahul Gandhi is against Modi and his rule.

“The atmosphere that has been created in the country, it is due to the ideology of the BJP. BJP’s ideology is to divide the country, crush the Dalits, tribals, minorities. We are against the ideology of the BJP. We are standing against it today, we will stand against it throughout our lives. And we will defeat them in the 2019 elections,” Gandhi told reporters.

Asked about BJP Dalit MPs writing to Modi with their complaints, Gandhi said: “You talk to them in Parliament. They also tell us that Modiji is a casteist person, an anti-Dalit person. He has no place for Dalits in his heart, the whole country knows this. It is not a secret.”

Gandhi attacked BJP President Amit Shah for likening the coming together of opposition parties to “snakes, mongoose, dogs and cats” climbing a tree trunk to save themselves from floods. He said every person in the country was against the BJP.

“Some days back a BJP leader said that opposition members were animals. The truth is that today every person in the country is standing against the government. The approach that this government has against Dalits, tribals, minorities and farmers, we are standing against it,” he said. Gandhi said the country will not accept that Modi government “spreads violence, hatred in the country… We are standing here against this ideology.”
