Kejriwal also tweeted saying, What favors did Haryana Govt grant DLF? How is DLF reply a bunch of lies? Will speak tomo at 5pm.

The tweet was referring to a statement by DLF, which posted a point by point rebuttal to his allegations that it gave Vadra an unsecured loan. Earlier on Sunday, Kejriwal had slammed the defence as being "full of half truths and lies".
Meanwhile Vadra had also slammed Kejriwal for resorting to cheap publicity stunts in order to kick start his political career. The Congress party has also rushed to defend Vadra, and on Monday Finance Minister P Chidambaram said that there would be no investigation into the matter.
Meanwhile, the IAC also issued a statement questioning land acquisitions made by Priyanka Gandhi in Himachal Pradesh, based on a letter sent to Kejriwal by former Chief Minister Shanta Kumar.
Priyanka Vadra’s family has a property in Shimla. I don’t have full information about this, but it has a value of crores of rupees. You should add this to your list. The whole country is with you in your fight,” Kumar said in a letter written to Kejriwal on Sunday.
Based on Kumar’s letter, India Against Corruption (IAC) issued a statement in which it said that the BJP state government in Himachal Praadesh should come clean on Priyanka’s properties in the state.
“We also know that no outsiders can buy property in Himachal without the state government’s permission. If this is true, when was Priyanka Vadra given permission to buy property in the state and which government gave it?” the IAC statement said.
“Shanta Kumar is saying he does not have information. We don’t understand this. He can find this out very fast as his party is in power. We appeal to Shanta Kumar and Chief Minister PK Dhumal that they tell the public whether Priyanka has any property in Shimla as is alleged,” it added.
