The family of Sonia Gandhi ön Monday got the support of one more leader in defence of Robert Vadra, who is facing charges of links with realty major DLF.

Karnataka Governor H.R. Bhardwaj said controversies would not stick to “towering” personalities.

“Towering personality”

“For the past so many years, attacks have been launched against the Gandhi family. I was the lawyer when Indira Gandhi was verbally attacked. But her personality was so towering that she fought back. Morarji bhai made so many cases against her, and they were all false. They fell like nine pins,” said Mr. Bhardwaj, who served as Law Minister in the Congress governments.

Asked at the sidelines of an event here about the charges made against Ms. Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law by India Against Corruption activists Arvind Kejriwal and Prashant Bhushan, he said: “The question is, we should develop our own personality in such a way that the attack fails. You have to be above controversy, transparent.”
