Panaji: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah should ensure the prosecution of the Congress president’s son-in-law Robert Vadra instead of just levelling allegations if they have the guts, Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh said on Friday.
“The fact remains — has he violated any law? The BJP can institute any enquiry, any commission, any investigation if he has violated any law. If you (Modi, Shah) have guts, why don’t you prosecute him?” Singh said.
Vadra faces charges regarding a land scam in Haryana, and also benami ownership of a residential property in London.
Singh said that despite being in power at the Centre for two years, the BJP had not been able to come up with a credible charge against Vadra.
“It is very funny or rather amusing. The BJP has been in power for the last two years… They have made allegations without proof. I just want to ask one question from the BJP: What law has Robert Vadra violated? If he has violated any law, let the law of the land deal with it,” the Congress leader said.
“The new controversy over a flat in London is about a property belonging to someone else. It doesn’t belong to Vadra. They say it belongs to him. You can make an allegation against anyone. But what proof do they have that this property belongs to Vadra,” Singh said.
