Claiming more evidence of a nexus between Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra, K P Singh led DLF and the Congress-led Haryana govt under the chief ministership of Bhupinder Singh Hooda, activist Arvind Kejriwal today demanded a probe by retired Supreme Court judges into their business relationship.
For this he provided added 'proof' and backed it up by collecting a large number of farmers who backed his allegations against Vadra, DLF, Haryana govt.
He also demanded a White Paper by Haryana government on the benefits it allegedly gave to the realty major.
In a follow up to his earlier allegations of a quid pro quo between Vadra and DLF, Kejriwal claimed he has more proof to show there was a "nexus" between Haryana government and DLF, which was given land circumventing laws.
"Prima facie there is strong evidence (against Vadra). We demand an independent probe by a a Special Investigation Team of retired Supreme Court judges. An FIR should be lodged against Vadra immediately," he said.
Kejriwal, a former Revenue Service official, claimed that it was a "fit case" for the Income Tax Department to raid Vadra but when the country's Finance Minister himself says that his account books are clean, "then who will have the courage to take action".
While there was no reaction from Vadra, Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi rejected as "baseless" the fresh charges levelled by him against Robert Vadra and said there was "nothing new and no proofs".
The Congressman then proceeded to unleash a counter-attack on Kejriwal and asked him to issue a White Paper on the finances for his campaign.
In Vadra's case, Alvi asked Kejriwal to file a criminal complaint in the matter and approach the court so that law can take its own course.
Another Congress big gun that was trotted out in defence of Vadra was Corporate Affairs Minister M Veerappa Moily who rejected Kejriwal's claims too and said the matter relating to land deals was examined and it was found that there was "no serious infirmity or violations" of Companies Law.
