A day after BJP released its video targetting Congress and Robert Vadra over corruption charges, Congress hit back at BJP for trying to defame the national party. 

Congress stated that nothing had been found against the son-in-law of Congress president despite an all out effort to defame him as reported by Zee News. 

Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi said, “They(BJP) have spent five months in Rajasthan digging, but have found nothing, three PILs dismissed.” 

"Two PILs have been dismissed by the high court and one by the Supreme Court, which recorded in a paragraph that merely because someone is related, he is not a sinner. These are same identical allegations. They have not found a single thing yet," Singhvi told Zee news. 

The BJP government in Rajasthan under Vasundhara Raje had, earlier, said that it planned to investigate Vadra's land purchases because of allegations that he had misused the previous Congress-led government's policy to provide land at subsidised rates for solar parks.

BJP has targetted his land deals in Rajasthan and Haryana. The party also released a six-page booklet titled 'Damad Shree' on various deals of Vadra in Rajasthan and Haryana. 

The BJP has alleged that Vadra's land deals were in clear violation of land regulations and it amounts to corruption.

BJP also claimed that the 'Vadra model' has become successful due to the patronage provided by the Gandhi family to him. 

"Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and the then Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot to save their posts were eager to help Vadra. There was a gross violation of laws relating to land and environment. The influence of the family helped make Vadra big earnings in the deals," said Ravi Shankar Prasad, senior BJP leader.
