BJP attacks the 'Vadra Model of Development'; questions Gandhi son-in-law's business growth

Sunday, 27 April 2014 - 3:20pm IST | Agency: DNA Webdesk

At press conference organised by Ravi Shankar Prasad, today, the BJP once again launched an attack on Robert Vadra's land deals.

Presented through a 'documentary', that took a rather sarcastic stance, on the what they referred to as the 'Vadra Model of Development', the party leaders questioned the Congress party over the various deals involving Priyanka Gandhi's husband. They also released a booklet titled 'Damad Shree' documenting these accusations.

Interestingly, this attack comes hours after Gandhi statement against BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, saying that one does not need a 56-inch chest to run the country but a "big heart" and "moral strength".

Following the video documentary, Prasad launched a series of questions directly targeting Sonia and Rahul Gandhi over "helping build Robert Vadra's empire". 

* Why was the licence for Skylight Hospitality renewed on 18/1/2011, despite knowing that a 50 crore advance has been received from DLF?

* Was short term capital gain tax paid for?

* According to the CAG, there was supposed to be thematic audit. However, there are a lot inconsistencies in the same. For one, this audit was dropped, and we would like to know why?

* The questions are raised because of the recent move to commercialise the Aravalli forest land, violating environmental laws. Is there a Haryana Model of development along side the Vadra Model of development?
