Punjab’s Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal on Monday demanded an inquiry into all the land deals related to Vadra family by sitting Supreme Court Judge especially in Congress ruled states of Haryana and Rajasthan.
Sukhbir Badal said that there are have been reports in media about undue favour been granted to Vadra family from certain land deals that makes it imperative for such a probe.
“Vadra, son-in-law of first family of India exploited his position and a probe was must to know that how the wealth of Vadra grew from few lakhs to multi thousands crores without a single penny investment by Vadras,” Badal said, adding that he just wanted to know what magic stone Robert Vadra was having that whatever land he purchased in any Congress ruled state turn into gold within few months.
Badal said that it was imperative for UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to come clean on this and immediately ordered an enquiry by sitting Supreme Court Judge to bring the truth before the public. He said that NDA demands a white paper on disproportionate appreciation of Vadra’s wealth during last few years.
When replying on a query about Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee Chief Partap Singh Bajwa that they will appeal to Punjab and Haryana High Court for the closure of Sangat Darshan programs, Badal said that Bajwa was forced to adopt the policy of its High Command not to follow the development initiatives but to create hinders. He said that the Congress leaders do not any problems of masses at ground level but they were adamant to mislead the people of Punjab through wrong propaganda against development oriented SAD-BJP Government.
“SAD will welcome Congress MLAs if they come with Public Issues otherwise won’t allow them to interrupt the programs,” Badal said.
He blamed UPA government for halted mining operations and said that it was the gift of Congress led UPA Government to the general public of country as the UPA was deliberately created scarcity of sand and gravels by artificially increasing the rates of sand-gravels.
