Land deal inquiry in Haryana politically motivated: Hooda

New Delhi, March 17 (IANS) Former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Thursday said the state government’s action in ordering a probe into alleged land scam in the state was “politically motivated”.


Hooda has been summoned by the Justice S.N. Dhingra Commission of Inquiry, which was set up in 2015 to probe the grant of commercial licences to a number of private companies, including Skylight Hospitality of Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra and DLF.

Hooda has been accused of extending favours to Vadra and has been asked to appear before the commission by March 23.

Reacting to the summons, Hooda lashed out at the BJP government in the state, saying it would not achieve anything.

“Obviously, there can be no second opinion on this,” Hooda told reporters when asked to comment whether the summons were politically motivated.

“Otherwise, why should there be a commission for one or two villages. Everyone knows who is their target, but they will not achieve anything,” the senior Congress leader said.

On February 10, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said in Chennai that the one-man commission inquiring into the controversial land deals was likely to submit its report before June.

“The commission is looking into the matter. It is supposed to give its report in June. It seems the commission will give its report before June,” Khattar had told IANS.
