New Delhi, Oct 9 (IANS) Realty major DLF Tuesday denied activist Arvind Kejriwal's new allegations on land deals in Haryana.

The company said it had not enjoyed special favours from Haryana government and had compiled with all applicable rules and highest ethical standards in its business transactions.

Responding to charges levelled by Kejriwal, DLF said the allegations largely centred around issues already in the public domain and were well disclosed. "It is unfortunate that an attempt is being made to sensationalise the same," a company statement said.

Kejriwal said earlier in the day that DLF, which had business transactions with Robert Vadra, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law, was favoured by the Haryana government in land deals.

Refuting allegation of a nexus between DLF and Haryana government, the statement said the case relating to 30 acres of land for a special economic zone in Gurgaon purchased by DLF from East India Hotels was stayed by the Supreme Court last year.

It also denied other allegations by Kejriwal.

"We stand by our earlier statement and wish to once again specifically state that DLF has neither sought nor enjoyed any special favours from the government of Haryana and all developments of DLF undertaken over the last four decades are strictly in compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations with an adherence to the highest ethical standards," the statement said.
