Robert Vadra enjoyed fruits of being Son-in-law of leader of India’s dynastic party. No one was discussing about him. But all of a sudden, some social activists started grumbling about him, his rising wealth, and the Nation is talking about special privileges offered to him for the only visible reason that he is the Son-in-Law of the Gandhi family. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Proactive Sonia: Defending Son in law \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Immediate after activist Arvind Kejriwal and lawyer Prashant Bhushan sensationally alleged that Sonia Gandhi’s Son in law Rabert Vadra amassed Rs. 300 cr in three years, Sonia has become hyper active. She has given instruction to her Congress party that it must refute allegations of corruption made against her son-in-law Robert Vadra. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Congress president Sonia Gandhi has made it clear to her party that it must refute allegations of corruption made against her son-in-law Robert Vadra by activists-turned-politicians Arvind Kejriwal and Prashant Bhushan. Sonia Gandhi's message to party leaders reportedly describes the charges as an attempt "to sensationalise" her son-in-law's involvement in real estate. \\\\\\\\\\\\\ It is alleged that Vadra was given an interest-free loan of Rs. 65 crore from DLF, which also sold him vast amounts of property at hefty bargains in return for favours from the Congress. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ This has made many media savvy Congress leaders to hide their face and passing media cameras to each other to react on this issue. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Congress in Confusion: Forced to shield Vadra \\\\\\\\\\\\\ Not sparing a word on Vadra and DLF, Law Minister Salman Khurshid described the activists as "upstart political people" and warned that his party will strategise and see if something more needs to be done to teach them a lesson or two on what the law of the land is." He described the allegations as a political conspiracy to grab attention by a newly-formed party. When asked if Mr Vadra will sue for defamation, he said the party will look at all options before it decides on its course of action.\\\\\\\\\\\\ Congress leader Rajiv Shukla said "All businessmen take loans to build their business. Maybe Robert Vadra also did that. What is wrong with that? But there is nothing to prove any proof that the Congress helped out DLF." \\\\\\\\\\\\\ Congress leaders were seen forcing Congress President Rashid Alvi to face media and give justification.\\\\\\\\\\ Both Kejriwal and Bhushan have alleged that DLF sold vastly under-valued flats, many of them in its main market of Haryana, to Vadra. In exchange, they said, the Congress party gave the developer large expanses of land in states like Haryana where the party is in power. Some of this land, they said, had been acquired from farmers for public projects. The activists also said that clearances and permissions were given to DLF projects at lightning speed. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ For India, Robert Vadra is a mystery. Secrecy loving Sonia Gandhi has been successful to shield her son-in-law for years. But unfortunately for her the ‘Activists’ have opened their mouth and started exposing all which will not be tolerated by the dynastic party chief. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\ It was interesting to see normally inactive and reluctant Sonia Gandhi for the issues of National interest, suddenly took a driver’s seat on the issue of allegations on Vadra. Nation is asking on which basis Robert Vadra is exempted from security checks at all Indian airports. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Nationalist Indians are expressing in each possible way against the Gandhi family. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ News Bharati has captured Nation’s voice on Twitter. \\\\\\\\\\\\\ Robert Vadra is not frisked but top Generals are frisked at IndianAirports:Its 'A National Shame'! Nehru-Gandhi dynasty=Rashtra. Priyanka's husband=Pati. So, Robert Vadra=Rashtrapati. Rashtrapati cannot be prosecuted in court of law: Cong. Why Congress leaders who did not come in public to support Robert vadra yesterday and today Kadar Khan and David Dhawan in talks with Robert Vadra for their upcoming multi billion project 'Jamai No.1.' CAG is approached too. Sonia Gandhi was very embarrassed on hearing that Robert Vadra is worth 300 crores... In politician terms, He is Below Poverty Line. Robert Vadra alleged expose by Prashant Bhushan is interesting. All editors knew about it. For obvious reasons they remained silent. Same spineless Journos/big media houses never tried to investigate the personal property/wealth of Sonia & Goon Robert Vadra. Bharat Ratna For Robert Vadra -Sacrificed lives of his family for acceptance in family which sacrificed lives for Nation (?).Did they? It must be asked why a video titled "How Robert Vadra became Fastest Growing Multi-Billionaire" is censored in India Vadra: Hi. My name is Robert. Call me Rob. | Kejriwal: I already did. Robert Vadra's 89 lakh 10,000 sq feet apartment in Gurgaon probably came under the Rajiv Gandhi Luxury Apartment Subsidy Yojna. Will Cong explain y BJP MP Nishikant Dubay's notice 2 discuss Robert Vadra in LS was turned down by Meira Kumar? When accompanied by an SPG protectee, like Priyanka, Robert Vadra is getting exemption of security checks? Why so? Robert Vadra: Being Son in Law of Sonia Gandhi \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Being a son in law of Sonia Gandhi, Vadra has been offered many perks. Vadra is exempted from security checks at all Indian airports. In a list with 30 entries displayed at all airports, "Shri Robert Vadra" is the only name; the rest are defined by ranks and posts like the President of India. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ He is protected by the Special Protection Group. His car is preceded by a pilot Gypsy with five Delhi police commandos and followed by another Gypsy. Vadra started accompanying the Gandhi family on election campaigns since 1999. \\\\\\\\\\\\\ Life with Priyanka Gandhi \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Priyanka Gandhi first met Robert, six years before their wedding at a party organised by their Italian friends. Both tied the knot in 1997. Their marriage was a strictly private affair with a guest list limited to 150 people. The couple has two children - Raihan, 11, and Miraya, 9 who participated election campaigns in Amethi. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Vadra’s Business \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Robert Vadra owns a substantial stake in the parent company of IndiGo airlines along with Priyanka Gandhi. He owns, Artex, a small company specialising in jewellery and handicraft exports. His companies have received unsecured loans from DLF Limited, India's largest real estate conglomerate. Sky Light Hospitality Pvt Ltd (owned by Vadra and his mother Maureen Vadra), is a partner in a firm that owns Hilton Garden Inn in the South Delhi business district Saket. DLF Hotel Holdings is another partner in this firm. Vadra has stakes in Blue Breeze Trading Pvt Ltd (aircraft chartering), North India IT Parks Pvt Ltd, Real Earth Estates Pvt Ltd, Sky Light Realty Pvt Ltd.\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Vadra Family \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Vadras were unhappy with Robert’s marriage with Priyanka and Vadra's father broke all ties with him. Robert Vadra issued a public notice in 2001, stating that his father, Rajender, and brother, Richard, was "duping" people by promising jobs at the Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee. Rajendra later threatened to file a defamation suit against his son. The Vadra family witnessed some tragedies. Robert's sister Michelle died in a car accident in April 2001. His brother Richard committed suicide in 2003 and his father reportedly died of a heart attack in 2009 although some sources reported it as a suicide. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Congress on Target\\\\\\\\\\\ Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy has said that Kejriwal's allegations against Robert Vadra are true.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The Bharatiya Janata Party has demanded a probe into the claims as well as disclosure of the business interests of Vadra. BJP chief spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said “very disturbing information” has come into the public domain. \\\\\\\\\\\“If a well known company like the DLF gives him an unsecured loan of 65 crores without interest, doles out huge costly property of the DLF in the shape of land and flats to him and his company, the people are entitled to know whether DLF was doing a charity and if it was doing a charity why was it doing it and does it have the same kind of charitable disposition towards thousands of its customers,” Prasad said. He added that the same company got “huge chunks of land running into hundreds of acres in the adjoining Haryana of the NCR” and alleged the episode seems to be a case of “quid pro quo”. “There is a possibility that the company got special benefits in states ruled by the Congress. This was an investment,” he alleged. \\\\\\\\\\\\\ The activists allege that about five years ago, DLF gave Mr Vadra an interest-free loan of Rs. 65 crore. Mr Vadra's five companies, which on paper were worth Rs. 50 lakh, say the activists, used this loan to buy DLF properties. They say that from 2007 to 2010, Mr Vadra bought property that was worth Rs. 300 crore and is valued at Rs. 500 crore today. "How did he afford this?" they asked. "What was DLF's interest in giving him hugely-discounted properties?" \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Activists have commented that an impartial inquiry is impossible as Vadra's status as Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law. They have demanded an independent investigation in this case. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Related stories\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Sonia Gandhi owns wealth of 2 to 19 billion USD: Can we Indians know the sources of your wealth Madam Sonia? \\\\\\\\\\\\\\ \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ SECRECY, thy name SONIA GANDHI: Now its issue of hiding Income details, but why?,-thy-name-SONIA-GANDHI--Now-its-issue-of-hiding-Income-details,-but-why-.aspx?NB=&lang=1&m1=&m2=&p1=&p2=&p3=&p4= \\\\\\\\\\\\ ==================================================================== 000000000
