    Vadra land deal: Congress seeks apology from PM Modi

    Congress on Thursday stepped up attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi demanding an ‘apology’ from him as Election Commission ruled out violation of model code of conduct by the Haryana Government in clearing the land deal involving Robert Vadra.

    Party spokesperson Anand Sharma alleged that Modi was ‘embarrassing’ the position of the Prime Minister by repeatedly making ‘false allegations’ and he should stop doing it.

    Modi had called for Election Commission’s nod for a probe after The Indian Express had reported on Monday that the Haryana government had cleared the deal involving Vadra.

    “BJP has egg on its face after the EC’s order. Narendra Modi, being the Prime Minister of the country, gave a very irresponsible statement and made allegations against Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda. Will the Prime Minister now seek apology from the Chief Minister and people of Haryana for making wrong statements,” Sharma told reporters here.

    Maintaining that it ‘belittles’ the high post if somebody in the seat of Prime Minister keeps making false allegations, the Congress spokesperson said, “Modi should apologise to Haryana Chief Minister.”

    Alleging that Modi continues with his ‘shoot and scoot policy’ as he was doing as an Opposition leader, Sharma said, “it does not behove a Prime Minister to be caught repeatedly making false statements…It is a matter of concern if the Prime Minister of India has this mentality”.

    Election Commission on Wednesday night ruled that there appears to be no violation of the model code of conduct by Haryana government in clearing the land deal between Sonia Gandhi’s son-in law Robert Vadra and real estate major DLF.

    Haryana government’s validation of the mutation of the land sold by a company owned by Vadra to DLF had sparked a row in the run up to the state Assembly poll.

    The Indian Express is neatly avoiding what Ravi Shankar Prasad said that nailed the falsehood that was presented to the EC.

    On TV. Prasad said that the Financial Commissioner of Haryana stated the deal was still not through, while the Deputy Commissioner, Gurgaon, order No 1684-86 of July 16 stated that the deal has gone through and DLF was the owner having bought the same from Vadra's company.

    This should be an eye-opener for all who think the media speaks the Gospel Truth. They cloak and push their agenda and their favourite's views in a clever manner so as to give any issue a favourable meaning.
