NEW DELHI: Congress president Soina Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra has hit back at his critics and alleged that he is being used by the opposition parties for political gains.

Vadra in a Facebook post said that all allegations being levelled against him are baseless.

Vadra, who has recently issued a notice by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for his alleged involvement in a land scam in Bikaner, said that it has been a decade but no government has been able to prove any charges against him.

“Almost a decade of government’s false and baseless accusations on me! They cannot prove anything without proof n there is nothing there to prove,” said Vadra.

“I will always be used for political gains, I know ... But I will walk with my head held high as in time and with the truth, which will conquer incorrect perceptions, created! about me,” he added.

Vadra’s statement comes at a time when Justice S.N. Dhingra Commission, which was set up to probe land deals in Gurgaon, including one between realty major DLF and Skylight Hospitality of Vadra, has informed the Haryana Government that the probe has been completed.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had made Vadra’s land deals a prominent poll issue ahead of the general election and Haryana assembly polls.
