A 2012 land deal in Bikaner is back to haunt Robert Vadra, who now finds himself under the ED’s lens. The central probe agency is investigating charges of money laundering by a firm believed to be linked to Vadra.
The ED has gone knocking Vadra’s door and it has been confirmed by none other than Priyanka Gandhi who acknowledged receiving a notice.
The development led to yet another face-off between the Congress and the BJP. Drawing a link between the ED probe and UP 2017 polls, the Congress claimed that is was actually an attempt to restrict Priyanka’s rising stars who many believe will be leading the party’s campaign in the state.
The BJP, in its response, mocked Cong’s charge calling it a sign of nervousness as the ED closes in on Vadra. The question is can probing financial irregularities in a land deal be termed vendetta.
