AAP asks BJP to come clean on action against Vadra
BJP had chosen to remain mysteriously silent when the AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal had exposed Vadra’s land deals in Haryana and Rajasthan in October 2012. Its leadership had then maintained that the BJP did not believe in raising issues about the relatives of leaders of other parties, said AAP The BJP had also desisted from raising the Vadra issue in Parliament, despite some of its MPs saying that they had the relevant papers with them since March 2011.
‘Though the BJP spokespersons are now trying to raise the Vadra issue for mere political gains, but their prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi’s contradictory statements on the issue clearly point towards a hidden deal between him and the Gandhi family,’ said AAP.
Modi’s quickly changing statements on the Vadra issue appears to be clearly linked to the decision of the Congress-led UPA government to bury the probe into illegal snooping of a young woman architect by the Gujarat government in 2009.
‘Are Congress and BJP hoping that the people will accept Modi’s statement on Robert Vadra and the UPA’s decision to let him off in the Snoopgate as a mere coincidence,’ asked AAP on Sunday. No leader of the Congress party is coming forward to answer the question on why the union cabinet’s 26 December 2013, decision to set up a commission of inquiry to probe Snoopgate, in which Modi’s close aide Amit Shah was directly involved, was brought to an abrupt end.
‘The ongoing election campaign has proved that the Congress and BJP are hand in glove in suppressing issues related to corruption and misuse of office,’ said AAP. See PG7
