In a day of back and forth exchanges, Kejriwal has responded to statements by Robert Vadra that called corruption allegations against him a 'cheap publicity stunt.
Vadra had said that the allegations leveled against him were 'false, baseless and defamatory', but a defiant Kejriwal told Vadra to go ahead and sue him if he wanted to.
Kejriwal said, "Robert Vadra has questioned our motives that is not important. He has not replied to the questions that we have raised."
The IAC activist also hit out at the Congress Party's continued defence of Vadra saying, that the very fact that they were defending him so vigorously showed that he was guilty. He added, "I'm really sad that Salman Khurshid is saying 'main Sonia ji ke liye jaan de dunga' instead of saying 'desh ke liye jaan dunga'
Earlier Vadra broke his silence to take Kejriwal head on, saying that he was the victim of a cheap publicity stunt by Kejriwal and Prashant Bhushan to kick start their political careers.
He added that he was a “private law abiding citizen who has been engaged in business over the last 21 years”, and said that his business transactions were fully reflected in financial statements filed before appropriate authorities in compliance with the law.
DLF also issued a statement which categorically denied that it sold any of its assets to 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.
