New Delhi: Justifying his allegations against Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra in the real estate controversy, civil society activist-turned politician Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday said that his party was targeting corruption and not the Congress by putting the facts in public domain.
"We have just put some facts in public domain. Robert Vadra can reply to the charges levelled against him. Why can't Vadra speak himself, why is Congress defending him?" he said while speaking to Karan Thapar on Devil's Advocate.
Kejriwal claimed that he was just raising an issue and not passing any judgement. "We invite all investigating agencies to probe us. But which agency will investigate Vadra? Allegations against Vadra are serious," he said.
He also made it clear that his group is not just targeting Congress. "We have gone against the BJP also," he said.
Robert Vadra faces allegations of financial impropriety after Arvind Kejriwal claimed at a press conference in New Delhi on Friday that construction major DLF gave an unsecured and interest-free loan worth Rs 65 crore to companies owned by him.
Kejriwal and senior Supreme Court advocate Prashant Bhushan claimed that Vadra's companies allegedly used that money to buy seven DLF flats worth Rs 35 crore for a rock bottom price of Rs 5 crore. The five firms that were used to buy the flats are allegedly owned by Vadra and his mother.
