In a sharp attack on the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government over the FIR filed against Robert Vadra and former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda for alleged irregularities for obtaining land in Gurugram in Haryana, the Congress described the FIR against Vadra as dirty tricks department of Modi government.

Congress communication in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala said, "As elections to the four States of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Mizoram along with the General Elections, 2019 draw near, the ‘Fake News Factory’ and ‘Dirty Tricks Department’ of Modi Government-BJP act maliciously in pursuit of their vicious propaganda."

"To divert attention from the corruption saga of ‘Rafale Deal’, the scam of ‘Demonetization’, the 12 lakh crore ‘Loot’ through hike in prices of petrol/diesel, the failure to create 2 crore jobs every year, the rapidly falling rupee and failing economy and complete failure of governance of PM Modi-BJP Government; a new set of ‘manufactured lies’ is being served through false and fake FIRs against political opponents," he added.

 

The FIR against Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Vadra and along with Hooda, DLF and Onkareshwar Properties had been registered at Kherki Daula police station in Gurugram.

In the FIR it is alleged that Vadra's company Sky Light Hospitality purchased land in Shikohpur, Sikandarpur, Khedki Daula and Sihi in Gurgaon's Sector 83 for Rs 7.5 crore and sold for Rs. 55 crore after a change in its classification.

Giving clarification on the land purchased by Vadra, Surjewala said, "The entire allegations are, thus, false and fabricated on the face of it."

Earlier speaking on the alleged land scam Vadra had said, "Election season, increase in oil prices...so let’s divert real people’s issues with my decade-old issue. What’s new?."
