TRUTH SHALL PREVAIL, SAYS ROBERT VADRA ON LAND ROW
The Congress on Saturday attacked the BJP over the “leak” of the Dhingra commission report, accusing it of practising political vendetta of the “worst order” even as party chief Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra said “truth shall prevail” in the allegations.
“Truth shall prevail,” Vadra wrote on his Facebook page, attaching a news report headlined “No Plot was transfered by Omkareshwar to Skylight.”
This was Vadra’s first reaction over media reports on the Dhingra commission which probed the grant of licences for change in land use in four villages of Gurugram, including licences granted to Skylight Hospitality Private Ltd.
Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said, “We had proof about a number of leaders and their kin but never harassed them. The Congress also knew of businessmen supporters and those funding the BJP but never raided them,” he said.
Azad wondered why the BJP government was stooping “so low to harass” Vadra. He claimed the Congress never indulged in vendetta against the BJP or its supporters when in power. “Whatever commission it may be, those commissions and inquiries are the political vendetta of the worst order,” Azad said. “This is the limit. I cannot believe that such a mighty government can stoop so low. It is just to harass its opponents.”
On Thursday, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra had also issued a statement, saying her finances have nothing to do with that of her husband and any insinuations made about her land deals were “false, baseless and defamatory” after a daily had questioned her about finances.
