In his Press conference on 9 October 2012,Arvind Kejriwal released the following information.
1.Undue favours were shown by The Haryana Government to DLF in allotting lands.
2.HIDC Land given to DLF at throw away prices.
3.Panchayat lands were given to DLF at Low rates.
4.Floor area Ratio was changed to accommodate DLF
5.Land Use was changed to suit DLF-Hospital land,Forest Land allotted.
6..High Court observed about the nexus between the Haryana Government and Builders.
8.DLF did give 50 Crore to Robert Vadra as unsecured loan to Robert Vadra.
This information falls under three categories.
1.Haryana Government had shown undue favours to DLF.
2.Robert Vadra was given 50 Crore unsecured loan by DLF.
3.Robert Vadra acquired major shares in a DLF floated company and sold these after one year later.
4.Robert Vadra was given 7 flats a the cost of one flat(Rs.Five Crore /flat.
That DLF gave 50 core is not news.Please read my blog on this.
Getting a share and selling at a later date is no offence.
If a company wants to sell a flat at a lesser price ,it can do so,there is no legal restriction.
But the issue is why was Robert Vadra granted such a favour?
The date of allotment of Land to DLF and Vadra’s involvement with DLF is a sure indication that it is quid pro quo.
The job of Vadra was to get the Land allotted, rules bent to accommodate DLF.
( I may add here, Liaison officers do this, for Indian Companies and Foreign Companies, but the results in the case of Vadra will be very swift for in addition Bribes, he has Political clout).
So legally speaking, excepting the suspicion that Robert Vadra had been accommodated because of his clout,which is obvious,nothing can be legally proved.
But speaking of propriety in Public Life, an enquiry needs to be conducted into the affairs of Robert Vadra and the indications are that it is unlikely.
To the points raised about Haryana Government ,yes, it needs an enquiry , especially in view of the High Court’s stricture on Land allotment and and the fact that the Haryana Government seems to have bypassed the High Court by reclassifying the land.
The Government can not dismiss this as it did Robert Vadra’s case on the ground that he is a private individual and his privacy needs to be protected(as vociferously shouted by Manish Tiwari in TimesNow Channel) as the Government is playing with Public land and Congress must remember it crucified Yeddiyurappa for the same crime in Karnataka.
But as for as the Expose on Robert Vara goes, this revelation goes, it is a damp squib and missed the target- Robert Vadra.
This type of shooting with out target will diminish Arvind Kejriwal’s credibility
