New Delhi: Taking the war of words into the next phase, India against Corruption (IAC) activist Arvind Kejriwal, who just recently made his political foray, has indicated that he has more ammunition in his arsenal to cause more embarrassment for the Congress Party by making further revelations on Vadra-DLF links.

Kejriwal had earlier expressed his displeasure over both DLF and Vadra’s statements and said that DLF statement is full of half truths and lies. Does Robert Vadra stand by DLF response or does he have another version?

Kejriwal also asserted that DLF has concealed facts. While, Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Congress President, Sonia Gandhi, said that Kejriwal is adopting these ‘cheap tactics’ to garner attention and launch his political career.

Vadra also said that these attempts were aimed to malign him and his family, while adding that the allegations against him were false, baseless and defamatory.

Earlier on Friday IAC’s Arvind Kejriwal and his colleague Prashant Bhushan accused DLF of favouring Robert Vadra.

“We would like to state that the business relationship of DLF with Robert Vadra or his companies have been in his capacity as an individual entrepreneur, on a completely transparent and at an arm's length basis," DLF replied in a statement on Saturday.
DLF maintained the business relationship with Vadra has been conducted in the highest standards of ethics.

It was also stated that DLF gave no unsecured loans to Vadra or any of his companies. An amount of Rs 65 crore was given as business advances for the purchase of land in two transactions, added the statement. Robert Vadra acquired properties worth hundreds of crores (of rupees) from nothing. What is the source of these funds," asked Kejriwal.

He distributed scanned copies of documentary evidence to back his claim.

"In the last four years, Robert Vadra has gone on a property buying binge and has purchased at least 31 properties mostly in and around New Delhi, which even at the time of their purchase were worth several hundred crores (of rupees)," Bhushan alleged.

Bhushan said the balance sheets of five companies set up by Vadra and his mother show that the "total share capital of these companies was just Rs50 lakh".

"This massive property buying spree by the son-in-law of the ruling dynasty in the country gives rise to several important questions," he said.
