Businessman Robert Vadra, who first gave a clarification against allegations of corruption on Facebook, has now closed his account on the social network. Right after, India Against Corruption (IAC) activist and newly-turned politician Arvind Kejriwal reacted by tweeting that he planned to reveal more about Vadra and his possessions at a press conference in New Delhi at 5pm on Tuesday.
“DLF granted favors to Shri Robert Vadra. What favors did Haryana government grant DLF? How is DLF reply a bunch of lies? Will speak tomo at 5pm,” Kejriwal tweeted minutes after Vadra closed his Facebook account. Kejriwal has been commenting on Vadra purchase and sale of properties in and around Delhi, saying the Gandhi son-in-law has received favors by virtue of being Robert Vadra between 2007-2010.
Finance minister P Chidambaram has also commented on the DLF-Vadra controversy today. He said that unless there was specific allegation of quid pro quo, the government could not probe private deals.
Kejriwal has said that we all live in a democracy and if there are some people questioning the son-in-law of Sonia Gandhi, they should come forward and answer them, in line with democratic principles.
Another important tweet comes from former Delhi cop and IAC activist Kiran Bedi. She commented, “When Vadra kind of allegations come in public domain, Courts, Sebi, Department of Corporate Affairs, Share Holders,can take initiatives! Provided–?”
