Arvind Kejriwal has slammed a DLF statement responding to his allegations against the company as being "full of half truths and lies".
Kejriwal took to his Twitter account to respond to the company statement, which categorically denied that it sold any of its assets to Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra at throwaway prices, or the existence of a quid pro quo in the business transactions.
“We wish to categorically state that the DLF has given no unsecured loans to Vadra or any of his companies,” said the statement released on Saturday, a day after Kejriwal's surprise attack on Vadra and the company.
However the response failed to convince Kejriwal, who said that it suppressed a lot of information, adding that he would make a full response to it on Monday.
He also took the opportunity to take a further dig at Vadra, saying, "does Robert Vadra stand by DLF response or does he have another version? Wud appreciate his response"

Meanwhile Vadra, who had been maintaining a stoic silence, took to Facebook saying, “Thanks so much for your concern. I am fine and can handle all the negativity".
He further said, “(I have) lost people I loved, what can be worse?”
There has been a bastion of Congress support for Vadra with even Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda denying any allegation of favouritism to DLF.
“We haven’t favoured DLF or anyone. Our system is totally transparent. We haven’t made any allotments to DLF,” he said in a statement.
“DLF is a very old organisation. These are wild allegations. If someone has been favoured, it can be challenged in court…this was reported earlier as well and my office had clarified everything,” said Hooda.
