But if we go by what the Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said, Vadra too is a farmer! and whatever he did was not illegal. Justifying his statement, he said that Vadra is a landowner.
Vadra is considered a 'farmer' as he owns part of agricultural land.
"If he owns a land designated as an agricultural zone, then he is a farmer. This uproar (over 3.53 acres) is only because he is the son-in-law of the Congress president. Thirty-five to 40 per cent of our licences are given to such small farmers who enter into collaboration agreements with developers. It is not illegal", he further added.
However, as per Ashok Khemka's report, this 'small' farmer had a great feat in sweeping away a piece of land, worth Rs 7.5 crores, with a bogus transaction that did not have any bank records.
True, 'farmers' really get the least here. Vadra could have done better!
