BJP MP Arjun Ram Meghwal has said Robert Vadra holds at least 10,000 bighas of land in the name of front companies in Bikaner alone.
Mr. Meghwal is one of the five party MPs who wrote to Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, demanding a probe into the land-holdings of the son-in-law of Congress president Sonia Gandhi.
Mr. Vadra’s alleged land dealings in the State came under the scanner afresh on Thursday, after the Board of Revenue asked all Collectors for details of lands deals.
“We wrote to the Chief Minister... Now, the Revenue Board has sought details from all Collectors of land deals in the name of certain companies,” Mr. Meghwal told The Hindu. “Once these details are received... we will know about the involvement of Robert Vadra in these companies from the Registrar of Companies.”‘No probe issued’
However, the government itself has denied ordering any probe.
“The government has not issued any probe order... The Board of Revenue is an independent body, and it has sought these details [so as to provide answers to] a question that was raised in the Assembly,” Parliamentary Affairs Minister Rajendra Rathore told journalists on Saturday.
But Mr. Meghwal said the Revenue Board and the government were not different from each other.
