Robert Vadra, businessman and son-in-law of Congress’ President Sonia Gandhi, bashed Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the hike in the prices of petrol which has become the topic of concern for everyone. He attacked him and said that he should come out of his air-conditioned cars and see people's real suffering.
"You (PM) must come out from A/C cars and see how people are suffering and perhaps then you would reduce fuel prices. All he does is blame others' previous government for everything and move on," Vadra said while speaking to ANI. “For everything Prime Minister blames United Progressive Alliance (UPA) and the previous government. If something goes wrong then my name will be raised. He always blames others and keeps going," he added.

He went on to add, “What Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said was right that they (BJP) only think about two people. To feel the problem and pain of common people one has to come on the road.”
In order to drive his point home, he chose to ride a bicycle and told ANI, “If I have to be people's voice then first I have to ride a bicycle to feel their pain then only I can make their voice strong. We can only request Prime Minister to look into the matter.” He rode his bike from his Sujan Singh Park residence to his Sukhdev Vihar office. The pictures of him riding a bike have started to go viral on social media.

I never seen Mr Roberts Vadra travel in bicycle in UPA government.

Another video has surfaced online and is starting to go viral. It shows one of the anchors who was interviewing him, fell down from the bicycle.
Mausami Singh gir gayi.. aur bhi zyada
People didn’t spare the anchor either and made fun of her on Twitter.
Khud gimmick kar rahi
Itna bada kaun sa pakoda hai Vadra ka ki 2 min ruk ke interview nai de sakta??
