Congress accuses Justice Dhingra, who is probing Robert Vadra land deal cases, of taking undue favours

Chandigarh: A day after Justice SN Dhingra Commission sought six weeks' more time to submit the report into shady land deals involving several companies including that of Robert Vadra, the Congress party on Friday questioned the credibility of the retired judge probing the cases.

Congress spokesperson RS Surjewala alleged that Justice Dhingra had accepted undue favours from the Haryana government.

“How will a person like that work unbiasedly?” Surjewala asked, as per news agency ANI.

He was referring to reported gifting of land by the state government to a trust headed by Justice Dhingra.

“Justice Dhingra accepted undue favours from the Haryana government for a trust of which he's chairman,” Surjewala said.

 

“It needs to be probed how a gift of land was given,” the Congress spokesperson said further, adding, “Justice Dhingra has compromised his position and he should resign.”

“It is clear that the higher ups in the government have rejected his report and want him to write another report.

“He is being used as a political tool by the BJP for vendetta, he must resign. This Commission must be disbanded,” Surjewala added.

The Commission was set up to probe grant of land licenses to some companies including that of Robert Vadra's in Gurgaon during the Congress rule in Haryana.

Robert Vadra is the son-in-law of Congress president Sonia Gandhi and husband of Priyanka Gandhi.

Justice Dhingra said he had sought more time to submit the report in order to go through some documents from a person stating "that they are documents of benami transactions of who benefitted from the grant of licence."

Haryana government had earlier twice extended the term of the Dhingra Commission of Inquiry.
