Coming out in support of Arvind Kejriwal on his allegations against Robert Vadra, Anna Hazare on Saturday asked why the Congress fears a judicial probe in the matter if they are sure that the charges are false.

“Many Congress leaders say that these allegations are only because of electoral compulsions and are baseless. We say that if the allegations are untrue, then why don’t they order a judicial probe into it? And now, if it is false, file a defamation case against Arvind. The truth will be out,” he said.

Mr. Hazare’s remarks came against the backdrop of Mr. Kejriwal levelling allegations on Friday that Mr. Vadra had bought property worth crores of rupees with an “unsecured interest-free loan” of Rs. 65 crore given by realty major DLF.

He said when they had raised allegations against 15 “corrupt” ministers earlier, the government had noted that there was no case in them. “Now, two of the ministers are out. The coal scandal is out. The whole country has seen it,” he said. – PTI
