Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, said on Thursday that the Modi government at the Centre “will witness a major revolt” in the near future.

“I wish the government all the best, but I think people will revolt against it as they know what is right and what is wrong,” said Vadra in an interview to news agency ANI.

Wading into the controversy about freedom of expression in campuses and elsewhere, Vadra said that the country has to learn to accept all sorts of opinions.

He said, “We are a diverse nation and have to be neutral in all the spheres and treat people equally regardless of their religion. We have to learn to accept all sorts of opinions.”

Vadra added that the youth of the country can’t be dictated to and we have to listen to them.

“I don’t say go against the nation. I am a proud Indian and I will abide by the norms but at the same time I have thoughts, I have ideology. I have the right to decide (what is) wrong and right. We can’t dictate to the youth. They are our future. We have to listen to them, understand them but we cannot threaten them or intimidate them,” he said.

Asserting that competition in all spheres of life is getting rigorous, Robert Vadra said that he has told his children that nothing less than 90 percent marks will work if they want to succeed in life.
