The speculation came when Priyanka, soon after Mr Vadra's statement on Monday, Feb 6, said that Indian media might have misunderstood Mr Vadra's response, and that he (Mr Vadra) is a successful businessman who is not interested in changing his profession.
However, Mr Vadra on Monday had hinted about his desire to join politics. "I will only contest elections if I think I can make a difference. If people want, I will enter politics. Right now it's Rahul's time to be in active politics," Vadra had said during his campaign in Amethi - the constituency of his brother-in-law Rahul Gandhi.
With all parties casting their eyes on the UP elections, Robert Vadra's entry into politics would add more fuel to the fire as Congress has always been accused of dynastic politics.
