New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday raised questions about Priyanka Gandhi's property in Himachal Pradesh, dragging the Congress president Sonia Gandhi's daughter, into the ongoing corruption onslaught against the India's ruling party.
Following the accusation of Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra having helped real estate giants DLF in return for favours, BJP leader Shanta Kumar on Monday demanded that real estate in Himachal Pradesh Priyanka should also be probed.
In a letter to social activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal, Kumar sought an inquiry into property owned by the Gandhi family in Himachal Pradesh.
"Priyanka Vadra's family also has a property in Shimla. I don't have the full information about it but it is worth crores of rupees. Please add it to your list. The nation is with you in this important movement," Kumar said in the letter.
Kejriwal and activist lawyer Prashant Bhushan last Friday had targeted the Congress first family by laying before people the alleged undervalued property deals of Vadra with India's biggest realty firm DLF, alleging the former made hundreds of crores in return of government favours to the firm.
