Well, the grand old party might try hard to escape from punishment but it seems to be not happening. All that is done in the past has to be answered. We all agree that the recent times have been tough for Congress and the Gandhi family, repeatedly getting caught in every possible crime done by them. And it’s now time to pay for it.
Moving ahead and getting hold of the culprits, the Haryana government has authorized the state police to investigate the land deal case against former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and the UPA Chairman Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra. And this time it won’t be an easy escape.
Addressing a press conference in Gurugram, Gurugram police commissioner KK Rao confirmed the government’s approval to probe and the investigation is underway, ” Rao said.
On September 1, 2018, an FIR was registered against Vadra and Hooda under the Prevention of Corruption Act and multiple selections of the Indian Penal Code, in the alleged scam that dates back to 2008. Besides Vadra and Hooda, DLF Gurugram and Onkareshwar properties Gurugram are also named in the FIR.
The FIR states that Vadra’s company, Sky Light Hospitality, allegedly purchased land in various places in Gurugram and sold them at exorbitant prices. But as the age old trick of Congress speaks, Vadra claimed that the FIR was filed to divert people’s attention from the real issues, while Hooda claimed that it was registered because of ”political malice”. Time and again law and order had evidence against the Gandhi family but each time they have escaped from law.
The Haryana vigilance bureau had registered cheating and corruption cases against Hooda in May 2016, who was Haryana CM from 2005 till 2014. The reason behind Hooda and other officials, all a part of the erstwhile Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA), being booked was for allegedly reallocating a plot in Panchkula to ALJ, the publisher of the National Herald newspaper, in 2005. In 2011, ALJ’s ownership was transferred to Young India Limited, in which Rahul Gandhi and mother Sonia Gandhi are shareholders and directors.
There have been repeated allegations against the former Chief Minister and the Gandhi family son-in-law, both have been also caught in several of scams in India as well as abroad. Will they end up being punished at least now? Or will they succeed escape even this time? Well, you don’t get caught in any crime unless your involved with people in it.
In July 2017, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) had told the Punjab and Haryana High Court that former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda allegedly misused his official position and illegally re-allotted a plot in 2005 to the Associated Journals Limited (AJL) in Panchkula.
