Hours after India Against Corruption member Arvind Kejriwal made allegations of corruption against Robert Vadra on Friday, Congress president Sonia Gandhi reportedly asked senior Ministers and party spokespersons to mount a defence of her son-in-law.

Over the evening, statements poured in from Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni, Union Environment Minister Jayanthi Natarajan and Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Hooda, while Law Minister Salman Khurshid appeared on the Newshour debate on Times Now to say, “Let them give us proof that will be verified by agencies and courts and then level such allegations.”
