New Delhi: The Prime Minister's Office has refused to share the records related to Robert Vadra’s controversial land deals, which it shared with Allahabad High Court earlier. The PMO rejected a RTI plea in this regard saying that the information sought has been “confidential”.

Lucknow-based RTI activist Nutan Thakur had filed a writ petition last year before the Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court seeking probe into the allegations of irregular land dealings against Vadra.

It was dismissed by the bench after Additional Solicitor General Mohan Parasharan, appearing on behalf of the Centre, had submitted that the petition was based on general newspaper reports which cannot be treated as true.

In its affidavit, the PMO had termed the allegations regarding irregular land dealings between Vadra, son-in-law of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, and real estate major DLF as ‘false’.
