NEW DELHI: After targeting the top Congress brass in and outside Parliament, BJP has trained its guns on Robert Vadra with a party MP giving a notice in Lok Sabha to raise the alleged scams involving him and also writing to the Enforcement Directorate in this regard.     

Kirit Somaiya, who has been in the forefront of BJP's attack on Congress over the AgustaWestland issue, has accused Congress chief Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law of benami transactions and floating many companies to park "non-transparent" money.     

"I will raise the issue in Lok Sabha," he said.      

In a related move, he has also written to the ED Director regarding "solar land scam" companies linked to Vadra.     

"I have submitted earlier details of various non-transparent solar project land transactions of Robert Vadra group," he has written, alleging illegal non-transparent land dealings, benami transactions, money laundering, cheating of farmers and seeking action.     

The Mumbai North-East MP is also the Chairman of Energy Committee of Parliament.    

Last week, Somaiya had attacked the Congress leadership in Parliament over the VVIP chopper scam. He had also written to the ED, asking it to "check" Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi's link with those involved in this as well as the CWG scam.
