Chandigarh: Haryana government on Tuesday night rejected Arvind Kejriwal's charge about a nexus between state officials and DLF and that the land meant for setting up a hospital was released in favour the realty major.
The state government also rejected Kejriwal's allegation that 350 acres of government land was given to DLF by rejecting the bids of two construction majors even without opening their technical bids, saying this was "baseless".
At a joint news conference here, Director General of Haryana Town and Country Planning and Urban Estates Department T C Gupta and Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructural Development Corporation's (HSIIDC) Managing Director Rajeev Arora denied any nexus between the state officials and DLF.
The two senior IAS officers said "we reject the allegations that the state officials are tilted in favour of the DLF".
Gupta said the land had been released to East India Hotels Ltd more than 16 years ago and the permission was granted to it to sell land to DLF Ltd "after following due process of law" .
