NEW DELHI: Congress today chose to ignore Robert Vadra's remarks that he did not need his wife Priyanka Gandhi to "enhance" his life.

"I do not think any reaction is necessary", party spokesman Manish Tewari told reporters when asked to comment on the remarks of party chief Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law.

He was asked as to what had triggered the sudden and surprise statement from Vadra who had often been defended by the AICC during controversies in which he was targeted by the BJP.

Yesterday, Vadra had created a flutter in political circles by remarking that he did not need Priyanka to "enhance" his life.

"I did not need Priyanka to enhance my life. I had enough. I always had enough. My parents gave me enough. I think I was educated enough to understand that I can sustain no matter what comes my way. That is my strength really," he had said in an interview.

Vadra has often faced attacks over his links with the Gandhi family and his businesses and at one point the AICC had said that an attack on him was an attack on the party.

Yesterday too, senior Congress leader Anand Sharma chose to ignore questions over the Vadra interview during th briefing.
