CHANDIGARH: Maintaining that nothing wrong was done during his tenure as the chief minister of Haryana, Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Thursday said his summoning by the Justice S N Dhingra commission of inquiry in connection with the Robert Vadra land deal case is politically motivated.

“I will go on 25th, there was nothing wrong done during my tenure, we will tell that (to the commission)...just because someone is a relative of a big political leader, they want to politicise it,” Hooda told ANI.

When asked if the entire episode was politically motivated, he said, “Obviously, there is no doubt in it. Everyone knows who the target is.”

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy had earlier welcomed the Justice S N Dhingra Commission’s move to summon Hooda and maintained that the former Haryana chief minister has behaved like a ‘servant’ of the son-in-law of Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

The Justice S N Dhingra Commission of Inquiry has asked Hooda to appear before it in fourth week of March and record his statements regarding the allotment of land to the Vadra promoted Skylight Hospitality company.

The Justice Dhingra Commission was setup in 2015 to probe the grant of commercial licence of land to hundreds of private companies, including Skylight Hospitality and DLF.

Last month, the commission had reportedly summoned Haryana Chief Secretary Deepinder Singh Dhesi and officials of several private firms for recording of statements.
