BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has written to the President demanding an inquiry by the Central Vigilance Commission and probe by CBI into the alleged involvement of Robert Vadra in a major DLF land deal in the national capital.
Swamy alleged that Vadra used his political influence to get a 23-acre property worth more than Rs 20,000 crore near Rashtrapati Bhavan allotted to DLF for just Rs 65 crore. DLF is proposing to develop high-end apartments, since its has secured permission for a housing complex.
“It is obvious that without political influence this change in land use breaching national security and providing windfall profits would not have been possible,” Swamy said in his letter to the President.
Swamy said in some companies floated by Vadra in recent times, “DLF executive Mr Amit Mehta was the director”. In light of the allegations, Swamy appealed, “Please take necessary steps including referring this letter to the Chief Vigilance Commissioner for a probe and subsequent CBI investigation.”
According to Swamy, Vadra floated six companies in June-August 2012. “During this period, UPA government had allotted Delhi’s most prime property to DLF group,” he alleged.
Vadra is the managing director of all the newly-floated six companies. Swamy alleged that in five companies headed by Vadra — Greenwave Agro Private Limited, Rightline Agriculture Private Ltd, Future Infra Agro Private Limited, Best Seasons Agro Private Limited and Prime Time Agro Private Limited – a DLF official Amit Mehta was the director.
He claimed documents proved that Amit Mehta was a DLF nominee. “His email id given to Registrar of Companies –email@example.com — is the email id of all DLF group directors to RoC,” he alleged.
The six companies floated in 2012 were besides the five companies of Vadra that have been in public scrutiny for various alleged improprieties. For the past three years, Vadra’s companies have not filed annual statements to the registrar of companies, Swamy alleged.
