Cancellation of land deal in Rajasthan: BJP says ‘victory of law’

Jaipur(PTI): BJP on Sunday described the Rajasthan government’s move of seizing about 374.44 hectares of land, a part of which reportedly belonged to businessman Robert Vadra, as a “victory of law” and hinted at more such actions in the days to come. The state government has taken back possession of about 374.44 hectares land in Bikaner’s Kolayat region after cancelling 18-mutations (transfer of ownership) found to be “illegal in private persons’ name”.

“We have said this from the start that people who are guilty, whether it is the matter of land acquisition or any other, law will definitely do its work,” BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said.

He said, “this question has been asked from us time and again in Rajasthan that what is the action you are taking against Robert Vadra’s company.”

“The reports of the investigation had been submitted and the government has taken action on that. I feel that it is a victory for law and time will tell about the future activities,” the BJP leader said.

However, AAP said that the Rajasthan government’s action is not “an action against Vadra” as no FIR has been registered against him.

“I am surprised that for the last one year the Rajasthan government is probing and so far they have only been able to cancel a 300-acre land deal,” Manish Sisodia said.

“Was no FIR is registered against the man who did this? Are you taking criminal action against that man or not?” he asked.

Taking a potshot at the BJP, Sisodia said, “Is it a criminal offence in your eyes or not, or you just want to cancel land deal and bother the big family.

“How can a common businessman is becoming a billionaire without investing any assets, we have taken out all these facts.

All these things should be investigated but it is not being done. They have just cancelled the land which is not an action against Vadra.”
