Robert Vadra in fresh trouble: BJP-led Rajasthan govt cancels 2010 Bikaner land deal

Jaipur, Jan 4: In a fresh trouble, the BJP-led Rajasthan government on Sunday, Jan 4 cancelled the mutation (transfer of ownership) of a part of land purchased by Congress President Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra's company Skylight Hospitality Private Limited in Bikaner district and nullified it.

Vadra's Skylight Hospitality's transaction with DLF had been under the scanner for a long time.


Media reports said that Rajasthan CM Vasundhara Raje-led government has cancelled the mutation of around 360 hectares land in Bikaner's Kolayat tehsil.

Vadra had purchased the land in 2010 and in 2006-07, allotted it illegally to some villagers, who were shown as farmers. Further probe has been ordered into the case.

Bikaner MP Arjun Ram Meghwal told media persons, " I have been opposing these deals since 2010 when these deals started happening."

"I had said that farmer's lands aren't for trade, law will take its course. Law is equal for everyone. Wherever Robert Vadra misused his power and broke revenue laws, action should be taken &and investigation should happen", he added.

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra on Vadra's land deal said, "The investigation proved that the land had been acquired from fake persons. Wrongdoers will not be spared."

Meanwhile, the Congress party spokesperson Rashid Alvi said that the Court hasn't said anything,

"The government is making statements. They just want to bother Robert Vadra", he said.

Archana Sharma, Congress leader from Rajasthan said, "This is political vendetta, if anything investigation should be done against Vasundhara Raje Govt."
