CBI must probe Robert Vadra`s land deals: Congress
Zee Media Bureau/Ritesh K Srivastava
New Delhi: Days after the BJP demanded a court-monitored CBI inquiry into the alleged land deals of Robert Vadra, a Congress MP from Haryana has also called for a thorough probe against UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law.
Reports on Monday quoted Rao Indrajit Singh, a Congress MP from Gurgaon, saying a detailed inquiry must be conducted to "substantiate or refute" the charges against Vadra.
Singh, while stressing that Khemka deserved a fair trial, also accused the Bhupinder Singh Hooda government of laxity in probing the land deals.
Gurgaon MP even said that the Haryana government and Centre should be proactive. There should be a fair inquiry in the land deals and guilty should be punished.
Vadra’s alleged land deals with real estate major DLF were questioned by IAS officer Ashok Khemka. Khemka was later transferred from his post in Haryana after he attempted to cancel one of those land deals.
In his report submitted to the government, Khemka said that a 3.5-acre plot sold by Vadra to DLF had been transacted in violation of all guidelines and that a license for the land to be used for a commercial project had been endowed to Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law to allow him windfall gains.
In a report submitted to the government where he was asked to justify his conclusions, Khemka mentioned why he believes the 58-crore sale was venal.
Meanwhile, the Haryana government has repeatedly denied giving any preferential treatment to Vadra.
