Robert Vadra on Wednesday hit out at the media after reports that Delhi Police security personnel have been posted for years at his family home in a posh Delhi locality where his mother Maureen Vadra resides. A section of the media had reported that six Delhi Police personnel have been deployed at the Vadra residence in New Friends Colony for the last 13 years, starting from the UPA-I regime.

“Really!! We have to stoop to the levels of now demeaning and harassing, elderly people…With all respect, please stop going after my mother…,” Vadra, who is Congress chief Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law, said in a Facebook post.

“Please remove my security and anything provided for me… no matter what the assessment, I will take every risk in the book, but lets have some level of decorum….Journalism at the worst I’ve seen,” he said.

    If he is so sensitive and sensible, he must quietly pay to the government exchequer the amount spent on her Mom's VIP security for 13 long years.

        There is no point in blaming the media which exposed and the query is on what basis the Security Cover was provided and whether she has any threat for her and if so through whom and why after the expose Vadra wanted to withdraw the cover because Vadra don't have any one good reason to justify the Security Cover given to his mother which is nothing but shame on him and his Mother in Law Sonia hi who had misused her authority !!!

          Targetting Smt Soniaji family members for one reason or other is absolutely wrong..One can make a note that everyday there will be one or other issue raised on any one of the family members.

            Excellent. Vadra's mother is the lone mother in the country. There are so many mothers of the tax payers who have no protection even in extremely challenging living conditions. And supporting a political family is completely wrong!
