Even as the Haryana government prepares to conduct an enquiry into land deals conducted by a company owned by Robert Vadra, he wrote on his Facebook wall saying that he had nothing to hide and he hoped that the findings of the enquiry wouldn't be used as political vendetta.

Here's what Vadra posted on his Facebook wall:

The Haryana government is reportedly in the final stage of setting up a panel, which, is expected to be headed by former Supreme Court judge Justice Swatanter Kumar.

"We are surely going ahead with forming a commission to look into all the land deals, if we spot any abberation, the panel will look into it. Right now the commission is in the formative stage," BJP's Haryana in-charge and national general secretary Anil Vij told the Economic Times.

"A probe will be initiated against 'Rahul's suited booted brother in law'," added Vij.

In March, CAG had alleged that the Hooda government granted "undue favours" to builders, including Vadra's firm, Skylight Hospitality.

At the time, Congress had insisted that the CAG report has neither indicted the former Congress government of Haryana or Robert Vadra or his Skylight Hospitality Private Limited for any violation of the Haryana Development and Regulation of Urban Areas Act, 1975, or any rules or policy.

Senior IAS officer and the then Haryana Director, General Consolidation, Ashok Khemka, who was the first one to point out and object to this deal, had also ordered that it be scrapped.

Khemka, who has been proved right now by the CAG, had claimed at that time that the deal was illegal and stood no chance of being allowed. However, the previous Hooda government gave a clean chit to Vadra in the land deal.
