Robert Vadra
New Delhi/Kolkata, Oct 6: One of the close aides of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Trinamool Congress MP Saugata Roy on Saturday, Oct 6 joined the list of Robert Vadra's critics.

Mr Roy asked prime minister Manmohan Singh to begin a probe against Congress President Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Vadra. "It is an ideal case for disproportionate assets investigation, " said Mr Roy while commenting on the allegations hurled Arvind kejriwal against Vadra.

Kejriwal earlier on Friday, Oct 5 claimed that Vardra was provided an interest-free unsecured loan by real estate firm DLF with which Vadra allegedly bought property worth Rs 300 crore from the DLF itself.

The former Team Anna members and RTI activist also said six firms had been registered so that land worth Rs 300 crore was transferred in the name of Vadra. Continuing his statement accusing Vadra of corruption, Kejriwal also stated that he was surprised to see that the DLF provided the loan to buy property mostly in Congress-ruled states of the country.

However, countering Kejriwal's charges against Vadra, Congress leader Rajiv Shukla said, "There was no quid pro quo. There was no favour given to DLF which is working in all states and has bought land even in non-Congress-ruled states."

Meanwhile, DLF also issued a statement saying, "The business relationship of DLF Group with Robert Vadra has been in his capacity as an individual entrepreneur and on a completely transparent and arm's length basis."

Now, it will be interesting to see how the prime minister would react against the son-in-law of the Gandhis.
