BJP leader sat on Vadra files for months, alleges Aam Aadmi Party

New Delhi: As a fallout of Rober Vadra land deals, Parliament on Tuesday was disrupted several times as BJP demanded discussion on the issue. The BJP hit out at Congress over irregularities in Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra's land deals after IAS officer Ashok Khemka alleged irregularities. The party asked for a SIT probe in all the land deals of Vadra.

Meanwhile, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Yogendra Yadav alleged that a top BJP leader sat on this information for months.

"Everyone in Delhi knew what Robert Vadra was upto. I should say here on record that the file came to Prashant Bhushan and Arvind Kejriwal not from any hidden source but it was sitting in a BJP National leader's table for several months and he didn't have the courage to speak," he said.

He said that the BJP leader is a very articulate and intelligent person but even he couldn't speak against Vadra. He also said that media houses were also aware of it.

"It was available with more than one editors of Delhi's leading media houses. It was lying on the table of a national leader of BJP and then in sheer disgust the man finally brought the file to us and said 'koi bolne ko tayar nahi hai, aap log boliye is sawal pe (Nobody is ready to talk, you people raise this issue). This is the truth of Delhi city. No one is willing to talk about it," he said.

However, BJP has denied these claims, party leader Satyapal Jain said, "We are not raising this issue because of elections. The report was submitted on May 21. It was published in newspapers on August 10. Within 2 days, we have taken up this matter. We have nothing to do with elections. It is clear case of corruption and party will go to any possible limit to expose this act of corruption."
