New Delhi, Oct 6: Anti-corruption activist Arvind Kejriwal Saturday stuck to his allegations against Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, saying he had just put certain facts in public domain which need to be answered.
India Against Corruption (IAC) leader Kejriwal and his lawyer colleague Prashant Bhushan alleged Friday that Vadra had bought property in Gurgaon and other places at below market rates and sold them at a huge profit.
“We are not passing a judgement…we have put certain facts in the public domain…why doesn’t he (Vadra) answer them,” Kejriwal asked while speaking to CNN-IBN’s Karan Thapar.
He asked why real estate giant DLF sold properties worth Rs.35 crore to Vadra for Rs.5 crore.
Denying he was targeting Vadra for being related to Gandhi and also to get mileage for his yet-to-be-named political outfit, Kejriwal challenged the channel to get the businessman to answer the charges.
“People will not agree we targeted him for being Gandhi’s son-in-law,” said Kejriwal.
Claiming to be neutral, the activist said both the Congress and the BJP said alleged that he was their rival’s agent.
Stating he had not read the reports about the DLF-Vadra link published in Economic Times newspaper in March 2011, Kejriwal said there was no harm in repeating the same.
The Congress defended Vadra, saying the charges against him were baseless and malicious.
Kejriwal denied Law and Justice Minister Salman Khurshid’s charge that he was indulging in blackmail by levelling false charges against Vadra.
