Vadra gained Rs 44 crore in DLF deal: CAG
New Delhi, Nov 2: At a time when media and BJP are attacking Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra for heckling a journalist for asking him about his controversial land deals in Haryana, a new report by Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India claims that his company made a profit of Rs 44 crore in a land deal with realty major DLF.

As per a report published in TOI, Vadra reaped nearly Rs 44 crore in windfall gains because an indulgent Congress government allowed him to do so in breach of law and did not insist on recovering Rs 41.51 crore of the profit he made by quickly selling the land to DLF Universal.

In its draft report on land deals in Haryana under the Bhupinder Singh Hooda-led Congress government, the auditor has said that Vadra's Skylight Hospitality Private Limited was allowed to develop a commercial colony when it had just Rs 1 lakh in its kitty.

"The department (of town and country planning) ignored the aspect of the financial capacity of the colonizer," said the report.

This development has given Congress' rival BJP another chance to attack the former which has been for shamelessly defending Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law.

Earlier in the day, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said law will take its own course on the land deals in the state involving Vadra's company.

"Law will take its own course," he said when asked by reporters here to comment on the land deals involving the son-in-law of Congress President Sonia Gandhi.

Asked about other alleged land scams during the previous Congress government in the state, Khattar maintained that the law will take its own course.
