Gurugram land grab case: 'There's no scam, it's being done due to political malice', says BS Hooda
Chandigarh, Sep 4: Former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Tuesday said that there is no scam in Gurugram land grab case and that it's being done due to political malice.
Speaking to media, Hooda said,''There's no scam. It's being done due to political malice. There was no wrong doing during our regime.Had this been the case, we wouldn't have been spared so far. It's result of govt's frustration.''
''Complaint was by a pvt person.If there's FIR against you,it doesn't make you accused.Had there been any substance in it,govt would've filed an FIR.They're doing this to distract people from their failures,''Hooda further said on FIR against Robert Vadra&him in alleged Gurugram land grab case.
Congress leader Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra and former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda were on Saturday booked by Haryana Police for alleged irregularities in land deals in Gurugram.
An FIR against Vadra, Hooda and two companies - DLF and Onkareshwar Properties - has been registered at Kherki Daula police station in Gurugram, Manesar Deputy Commissioner of Police Rajesh Kumar told PTI.
In February, Hooda and 33 others were chargesheeted by the CBI in another case of alleged corruption. That chargesheet was related to land deals in Manesar, Naurangpur and Lakhnoula villages of Gurugram, alleging a scam totaling Rs 1,500 crore.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had made the land deals a major poll issue in 2014, alleging that Vadra benefited through questionable land use permissions granted by the earlier Congress government in the state.
