Nagpur: Sticking to its demand for a probe into Arvind Kejriwal's allegations on Robert Vadra's dealings with DLF, BJP on Sunday said those involved should put forward "concrete clarification" on the charges to put an end to the issue. Meanwhile, BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain demanded a probe into the allegations against Vadra.
"A company (DLF) which itself has a loan to the tune of Rs 22,000 crore and paying an interest of 15 percent thereon, was extending interest-free loans worth Rs 65 crore to Vadra," BJP national spokesman Prakash Javadekar told reporters here while demanding a probe into the matter.
Asked why the party did not raise the issue earlier, he said the BJP had given notice in Parliament, but was denied permission (for discussion).
BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said the truth about the charges should come before the people.
"One organisation alleges irregularities and then Congress the Congress claims that nothng sort of this has happended...there will be no end to this cycle.
"The concerned parties should put forward concrete clarification on the matter to put an end to the issue. If there is an iota of truth in it, then that should be revealed to the public. It is false, then that should come out too," he said.
Meanwhile, Javadekar accused the Congress-led UPA government of not keeping its promise of holding consultations with the main Opposition parties and all state governments before bringing in FDI in retail.
"Our opposition to the FDI in retail will continue," he said.
He claimed Congress does not enjoy majority in Parliament and should not push the economic reforms.
He rejected the DLF's clarification over its business relationship with Vadra, saying the realty major is itself in centre of allegations.
DLF recently rejected the allegations that it had given unsecured loans to Vadra as a 'quid pro quo' for favours and said it had transparent dealing with him as an individual entrepreneur.
National general secretary and spokesperson of BJP, Jagat Prakash Nadda, also demanded a high-level judicial inquiry into the allegations against Vadra.
In a statement released in Shimla, Nadda said the people of the country have the right to know that how his stupendous rise and increase in wealth coincided with UPA regime.
Prima facie, it was a case of accumulation of wealth beyond known sources of income and Vadra should also be treated like Jagan Mohan Reddy.
BJP vice president Shanta Kumar has also written a letter to Kejariwal, asking him to include the properties purchased by Vadra family near Wild Flower Hall in Shimla.
