Speaking about corruption allegations against Vadra, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala on Monday, Oct 20 said, "They (BJP) have a Govt at the Centre, in Rajasthan and soon in Haryana." He also added, "They are welcome to investigate Robert Vadra."
Continuing his statement, the Congress spokesperson also added, "There was neither any wrongdoing, nor any favour to any individual including Robert Vadra."
They are welcome to investigate Robert Vadra, says Congress
Surjewala's statement surfaced just a day after the election results in Maharashtra and Haryana. Congress tasted the dust in both states. While BJP won 123 and 47 seats in Maharashtra and Haryana respectively, Congress managed to win only 42 in Maharashtra and 15 seats in Haryana.
It is believed that alleged corruption charges against Congress and several other allegations against Vadra led Bhupinder Singh Hooda government to face the defeat in Haryana.
BJP always hurls serious allegations against Hooda government saying it had helped Mrs Gandhi's son-in-law to grab land deal in the state. During an election rally in the state, PM Narendra Modi sarcastically described the validation of the deal as "a parting gift from the state's Congress government to the party's First Family".
However, former Haryana Chief Minister Hooda said, "Mr Modi's speech was factually incorrect and far from the truth". And that the deal was cleared following proper procedure in July, much before the code of conduct kicked in.
