BJP using Rashtriya damaad Robert Vadra prop to stall passage of Food ... - Daily News & Analysis

After the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) sought a Special Investigation Team (SIT) probe into the alleged land deals involving Congress President Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra, the ruling party on Tuesday rubbished the accusations saying that it is a matter to be dealt by the Haryana Government, and charged the Opposition with using it to delay passage of the Food Security Bill.

"It is a matter of the state, it will be raised in the legislative assembly of the state, according to procedure. It is clear that Yashwant Sinha and the Bharatiya Janata Party used this as an excuse not to let the Food Security Bill pass in the Lok Sabha today. They did not want the Bill to be passed because it would benefit billions of people in the country to eat food at a subsidized rate, and there would be no people dying from hunger in the country. …This entire drama was staged so that the Food Security Bill does not get passed," Congress leader Jagdambika Pal claimed.

"I believe that Yashwant Sinha's statement was completely biased by the Bharatiya Janata Party and I condemn it. He is Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law, not the raashtriya damaad (son-in-law of the nation). The issue that they are raising it has no relevance to the government, it is a matter of the state," Pal added.

BJP leader Yashwant Sinha had alleged today that the ruling Central Government has been covering up the discrepancies in Robert Vadra's land deals and demanded a SIT probe

"Central Government has been continuously covering up these scams. Want SIT to inquiry into this," Sinha told media here

"Not only Haryana, but in entire NCR, wherever Congress is in government, Robert Vadra has indulged in land scams," Sinha added

According to reports, Sinha had also said that Vadra has adopted a unique model of business where, without any investment, one can make crores of rupees, and added that he would like to take business lessons from him.

Reacting to this, Congress spokesperson Renuka Chaudhary said the ruling party would be more than happy to offer the politically unsuccessful BJP lessons free of cost.

"Tell Yashwant Sinha that if he wants appropriate classes (from Robert Vadra) for free, we will arrange them for him, because during his party's tenure, we didn't see anything exceptional. So, if they have to be taught, we will teach them; no problem," Chaudhary said.

Last year, Ashok Khemka , a senior Haryana cadre IAS officer, alleged irregularities in the land dealings of Robert Vadra and DLF in the state and asked the state government to give him a copy of the inquiry reports conducted by it.

It led to a political hue and cry, but did not stop Khemka from seeking a response from the government on whether a cheque issued by Robert Vadra's company was a dummy cheque or not. He had said if the report had appeared in newspapers then he should also have access to it.

Khemka was transferred from Director General Consolidation of Land Holdings and Land Records-cum-Inspector General of Registration to his present posting in the State"s Seed Development Corporation shortly after he initiated a probe into land dealings between Vadra and DLF.

A probe report submitted by four deputy commissioners in Haryana had given a "clean chit" to Vadra over his land deals.

The Prime Minister's Office in November, 2012 had told the Allahabad High Court that charges of irregularities in land deals against Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law were false, vexatious and based on hearsay.

It said that the petition was driven by a desire for publicity and seems to be actuated by political considerations rather than public interest.
