Kejriwal charges cheap publicity bid: Vadra

Congress response, by Rashid Alvi -

"Whatever he has told there is nothing new in it. He has the habit of acquiring publicity. He is doing it all for publicity. The documents he has shown to the media, how do we know whether they are authentic or not. I do not agree that this is any kind of evidence. And if he wishes to take any formal steps then the Haryana government will respond. He has not made any statement so far to which I feel I need to respond."
 
On Kejriwal request for a white paper: "Has he approached the Haryana government for a white paper? Announcing it in front of the media is not the right way. Let him request the Harayana government and we will consider it.


 
 
On the court orders against the DLF-government nexus: "I laugh at such issues. Who is to decide such issues? He (Kejriwal) will only give allegations, he only will pass judgments. Has anyone seen this document? I have not seen it. If the High court has every passed such a judgment then when was it passed? Where? What sort of documents are these?"

On the Kejriwal's attack on Chidambaram: "If the FM has said anything, I am not aware what exactly he said, but whatever he said, he said correctly. The people who throw allegations before the media should take the right approach and go before the law for relief."  

On the documents presented by Kejriwal: "Whatever he has told there is nothing new in it. He has the habit of acquiring publicity. He is doing it all for publicity. The documents he has shown to the media, how do we know whether they are authentic or not? I do not agree that this is any kind of evidence. And if he wishes to take any formal steps then the Haryana government will respond. He has not made any statement so far to which I feel I need to respond." 

Corporate Affairs minister, Veerappa Moily - 

On Vadra's companies: "I can just tell you that this is a question of allegations. These allegations appearing in the media are based on filings by companies promoted by Robert Vadra before the Ministry of Corporate Affairs. There were no irregularities noticed when the Ministry checked the documents. "

On the land acquisitions: "no irregularities were noticed, however some action was taken for technical violations and penalties were imposed. In our records, we have not found any irregularities."

BJP responds, by Nirmala Seetharaman -  
 
"We have no evidence of any steps taken by the government against any corruption.  
 
Investigations are too much to expect. We believe the Congress will take no steps against such allegations. The Finance Minister himself is giving a clean chit to the son-in-law. While the FM said that Vadra was a 'private citizen', however he is a politically exposed individual and his high-volume transactions should be investigated.  
 
To take names - in cases like Jaganmohan Reddy the congress and the CBI has cracked down deeply, since their transactions were considered 'politically exposed'."
