New Delhi: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, who never leaves an opportunity to lash out at Gandhi family, has surprisingly maintained silence on the allegations levelled at Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra by anti-corruption activist Arvind Kejriwal.

Apparently Modi himself is alleged to have allotted one lakh square metre of land in Gandhinagar area of Gujarat in 2007 to DLF Group at concessional rate.

Notably, Kejriwal had alleged that the realty major had allotted one lakh square metre of land to the Gujarat government, apart from Haryana. He cited a memorandum signed by all Gujarat Congress MPs and MLAs, which was presented to then president Pratibha Patil on June 3, 2011, which stated this allotment was done without any auction and caused a revenue loss of Rs 253 crore to the Gujarat exchequer going by current market rates. The exchequer lost Rs 142.28 crore as a result.

The memorandum further says that the DLF Group got this land for developing a special economic zone but later approached the state government to denotify the special economic zone (SEZ) and convert it into an IT park. The request was granted by the Modi government in 2009.
