Jaipur: Rajasthan spells further doom for a battered Congress and the nation’s ‘first family’, the Gandhi’s. Son-in-law Robert Vadra has hit the headlines again with reports that former Congress Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot reportedly helped him make big bucks. With the sitting BJP MP demanding an inquiry into land deal irregularities, the Bikaner DM has indicated that companies in which Vadra has stakes, have made huge profits by way of buying land at reduced rates and then selling it at premium rates. The DM has named “five companies” which bought 663 hectares of land, if not more, in which Vadra has stakes. It is learnt that 284 hectares was later sold at a premium. This apart, the report suggests Vadra was the “first to purchase plots in parched deserts of Bikaner,” and soon after that the Gehlot Government went into an agreement with a private firm to set up a silicon plant and develop the area as solar hub.
