Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Congress Party president Sonia Gandhi has reacted sharply to Rajasthan government’s keenness on a CBI probe into the Bikaner land deals.
With Assembly elections a year ahead, Rajasthan’s BJP government has written to the CBI to investigate into the acquisition and sale of 1,400 acres of land in Bikaner, which involves Vadra’s company Skylight Hospitality.
The state home department has said it was necessary to give the case to the CBI as its concerns the Army firing range at Mahajan on the India-Pakistan border and has ramifications for national security.
Vadra, meanwhile today hit out at the Rajasthan government, taunting that they will find no evidence against him.
In a Facebook post, Vadra wrote today :“Another attempt at malicious persecution exposed.
First Rajasthan government filed an FIR on 26th August, 2014. In three years, they filed the chargesheets, summoned documents and also company officials, yet found not an iota of evidence.
Neither the FIR nor the chargesheets accuse the companies associated with me in any manner whatsoever..
Having failed with the police FIRs and chargesheets, they unleashed the Enforcement Directorate to harass and hound. As they fail, they make one more sinister attempt to rope in the CBI. Has the Rajasthan government lost faith in its own police and investigations?
Please hound, harass, persecute as much as you want, such lies will never undermine the truth.#Truth will Prevail.”
The post has garnered many reactions.
