Arvind Kejriwal's new allegations against Robert Vadra, DLF, and the Haryana government make for interesting reading.
But then, Kejriwal always gives journalists good copy; some might claim it's his only really useful trait. That doesn't mean that the deals Kejriwal has chosen to highlight aren't interesting in their own way.
Essentially there are two: on the DLF SEZ holding company that Mr Vadra bought into, and on the plot of land in Manesar that Vadra sold to DLF - using the advance on that sale to buy into several DLF properties.
The really interesting thing about the former is that Mr Kejriwal and Prashant Bhushan have laughably chosen to glorify the original use of the land, as a hospital project.
Of course, the hospital was being set up by Oberoi Hotels, of all people - which would lead most outside observers to strongly suspect that East India Hotels, the Oberois' holding company, was using the government's public-purpose clause for private gain. Indeed, they said they would also set up an institute for hotel-management trainees, and take over a large part for "executives' apartments".
The Haryana government wanted this turned into a software SEZ. The latter is arguably as much a "public purpose" as the former, and no doubtful lobbying process to get the use changed need be imagined.
Note also that Kejriwal, typically, did not tell you the complete story – namely that the High Court order on the SEZ he quoted was stayed by the Supreme Court.
The second transaction, of course, appears a straightforward sweetheart deal, in which DLF essentially held Mr Vadra's hand and allowed him to make a ton of money while he felt awfully smart about his business nous.
Frankly, we all think real-estate works like this anyway – nobody without connections can make the big money.
Still, there are a few outstanding questions which need answering.
