New Delhi, Oct 6: It seems noose is tightening around Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra. Addressing an election rally in Hisar, the Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged the Election Commission to look into the whole issue, how Bhupinder Singh Hooda government approved the controversial land deal.

"Despite the model code being imposed for the state elections, chief minister Bhupinder Hooda cleared land deal for the 'damaad' (Robert Vadra) yesterday. The EC should take serious note of this", PM said on Monday as quoted by HT.

This new development has come after a report came to fore which said that in a parting gift Hooda government cleared a file that enables Robert Vadra to convert his prime residential property in Gurgaon into a guest house, possibly for commercial use.

Hooda's parting gift for Robert Vadra: Will it completely drown Congress's sinking ship?

In a quid pro quo manner, the Hooda Government cleared the file just before the imposition of model code of conduct in the poll bound Haryana. The experts have this opinion that through this move, Haryana Chief Minister is showing his loyalty for the Gandhi family, whose blessings he enjoys.

Vadra owns the companies like Sky Light Hospitality, Sky Light Realty, Blue Breeze Trading, Artex, Real Earth Estates and North India IT Parks . All of his companies were registered between November 2007 and June 2008 with a paid-up share capital between Rs.5 lakh and Rs.25 lakh. According to reports, his real estate business estimated of worth about Rs 300 crore.

Time and again BJP and even AAP have raised question over his nexus with Hooda Government and hence got undue favour. It was also alleged that he took advantages of his clout as Sonia Gandhi's son in law.

Just before Lok Sabha election, the BJP had released a six-page booklet, titled ‘Damaad Shri', which talked about Vadra's land deals.
