Sonia Gandhi ducks questions on Robert Vadra
New Delhi: Congress President Sonia Gandhi today ducked questions over the allegations of irregularities in land deals involving her son-in-law Robert Vadra.
After the swearing-in ceremony of the new ministers inducted by the Congress-led UPA in a major cabinet reshuffle, NDTV asked Mrs Gandhi on the allegations levelled against Mr Vadra by the civil society group India Against Corruption, led by activist-politician Arvind Kejriwal. The Congress President ignored the question, saying, “Let it be.”
Mr Vadra is under attack from several parties, including the BJP, after the IAC accused him of irregularities in the land deals he carried out in Haryana.
Haryana government officials have cleared Mr Vadra of any wrong-doing in the land purchases done by him and his companies.
