Chandigarh: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar may order probe into the contentious land deals of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra today.

The Chief Minister will present government's stand on the approval to the land deal between Vadra and DLF during the erstwhile Congress government in the state assembly today.

According to reports, Khattar mayl also order investigation into all land deals which were cleared by the Hooda government.

Yesterday, the Haryana Assembly witnessed uproarious scenes over the ‘wrongdoings' of the Hooda regime. Leader of Opposition and Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) leader Abhay Singh Chautala demanded a probe into Vadra deals by a sitting judge.

“New ministers have said that all the wrongdoings will be probed thoroughly and culprits will be brought to the book. We hope that the new government will recover the losses caused to the government,” he said.

Haryana Finance Minister Captain Abhimanyu assured that state government will probe every single issue involving Vadra land deals.

“The Governor's address presents the state government's roadmap. We will make Haryana corruption free state. The Chief Minister has said that every single issue will be probed,” he said.

The Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) has put Vadra in dock by pointing fingers at serious irregularities in his land deals in Haryana. According to CAG, Vadra made windfall gains worth Rs 43.66 crore with a lenient Congress government that allowed him to indulge in this illegal act, breaching law, and did not persist on recovering Rs 41.51 crore of the profit that he made by selling the land to DLF Universal.
