Media reports earlier had claimed that Kirti Somaiya, national secretary of BJP, had vowed that if BJP returned to power in Rajasthan, then the state government would acquire over 1,000 acres of land purchased by Vadra in western Rajasthan and return them to farmers.
It seems that BJP is on its way to keep their promises which the party had mentioned in their pre-election manifesto. The latest move may prove costly for Vadra and Congress if Raje indeed decides to order a fresh probe against Vadra.
BJP had vowed to acquire land in Rajasthan purchased by Robert Vadra
The letter, which has been sent to Raje, reportedly said, "There is a land ceiling Act in Rajasthan and when an ordinary person violates it, he faces action from law authorities. Vadra and his companies have openly violated the Act and this was ignored by then Congress government despite repeated complaints. There is a need for a transparent probe into the matter."
"Government officials misused their position at the behest of then Rajasthan government to facilitate the purchase of land by Vadra and his companies. The manner in which land was purchased and registered needs to be probed," it added.
