The Congress Wednesday rejected the demand for an inquiry into Robert Vadra's land deals, suggesting the action taken by Ashok Khemka on a land deal involving the son-in law of Sonia Gandhi was an afterthought.
Dismissing the charges against Vadra as "absolutely baseless", party spokesperson Rashid Alvi said, "No inquiry is needed. I outrightly reject this. All of us appreciate that the officer was transferred on October 11. And he took a decision on this piece of land on October 12 and 15. Hence, his transfer has nothing to do with this land."
Noting that according to media reports, Khemka was transferred nearly 40 times, he wondered why nobody questioned the reason behind his transfer on earlier occasions.
