cm silent on vadra land deal
What does Haryana have in store for Robert Vadra, the husband of Priyanka Vadra Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi’s daughter? Nobody knows. Vadra, as per sources, is in possession of land beyond the prescribed limits of the law. Sources say that he has possession of 157.5 acres, which is in contravention of the law, and in the given circumstances, the state government has the power to confiscate the entire property. Our sources on the fourth floor of the Chandigarh Secretariat have disclosed that the complete file of Vadra’s land deals was submitted to Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar for further action. The file has not been returned to the officers yet with Khattar’s recommendations. In the meantime, the Haryana government is planning to institute a committee headed by a retired High Court judge to investigate all disputed land deals in Gurgaon and Faridabad. With respect to Vadra, the government remains mute. Finally, the Khattar government seems to have learnt the art of ruling the state.
