Notice to Robert Vadra company not vindictiveness: Haryana CM
Chandigarh: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Tuesday insisted that the notice issued to a company owned by Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra was not any act of vindictiveness, saying such a step has been taken with regard to "all defaulters" and not him alone.
He told reporters here that it is not an issue of "Vadra or no Vadra" but his BJP government would carry out probe wherever any wrongdoing has been committed and set the things right.
"Look, it is not just one company. All the defaulters have been sent the notice," Khattar said when asked about the notice by Haryana government to Vadra's company Skylight Hospitalities, seeking details of a land deal in Gurgaon with realty major DLF, for the purpose of imposing tax.
There is no question of targeting anyone in particular or act of vindictiveness, the Chief Minister said.
"Vadra or no Vadra is not the issue. Our target is to set the things right wherever any wrongdoing has taken place," he said addressing a press conference here ahead of the completion of one year of his government on October 26.
Asserting that his government was committed to provide a transparent and corruption-free administration, Khattar said his regime had proceeded as per law wherever any wrongdoing had come to its fore.
He said in all 213 cases had been filed through Vigilance Bureau in past one year that included 25 against the public servants.
Various probes pertaining to the alleged acts of ommission and commission and wrongdoings which took place during the tenure of the previous government are underway, he said.
