“I haven’t seen the report but if it has been leaked then it proves that this is witch-hunt. We followed proper policies and no undue favours were given to anyone,” said the former chief minister.

The Dhingra Commission examined 250 licences

Justice Dhingra submitted his report to Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Wednesday. He handed his 182-page report to the chief minister but has refused to disclose its contents. However, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala demanded that the report must be made public. He said, “Dhingra panel is a mere cog in the malicious witch-hunt machine. The report of Justice Dhingra leaked to the press in the morning. It is sheer political vendetta.”

The Congress termed it as a ‘sinister conspiracy’ of Haryana Government and the BJP to defame and malign the party. The commission found that licences, which allowed a change in the way land was used were allotted randomly, said the sources.

Justice Dhingra has confirmed that he has found irregularities in the grant of land licences and said he has "named each and every person who was responsible, whether a government official or private person."

Further, the commission has cited few names in its report but it is not clear if Robert Vadra's firm, Sky Light Hospitality Private Limited, finds a place in the list. Robert Vadra's office said that no one from the Dhingra Commission spoke to him or his company, though it was sent a set of questions like other firms.

It has been alleged that Robert Vadra bought a 3.5-acre plot in Gurgaon in 2008 for Rs 7.5 crore, and just a few months later sold the same plot for Rs 58 crore to DLF, India's largest real estate developer. DLF too has denied any wrongdoing on its part.
Interestingly, Justice Dhingra summoned neither Vadra nor the senior bureaucrat Ashok Khemka, who tried to cancel the land deal that's been described as corrupt.
