She also dared the government to investigate the allegation ‘unbiasedly’.

Senior BJP leader Kirit Somaiya on Monday sought detailed inquiry by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) into alleged involvement of Robert Vadra in the 2009 purchase of a ‘benami’ or proxy-owned mansion in London.

Reacting to the allegations, Sonia Gandhi said: “This is also a political conspiracy. What do you mean by Congress-mukt Bharat? Everyday they give excuses and level wrong allegations.”

“If this is true, then they should conduct an unbiased probe. Everything will become clear,” said an angry Sonia Gandhi, who was on a two-day visit to Rae Bareli in Uttar Pradesh.

On the completion of two years of National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Gandhi said: “I have never seen anything like this, Modi ji is the PM, and not a Shehenshah (King).”

“Our nation is facing drought, poverty, farmers are in pain. At these times, such a “show” is not appropriate,” said Gandhi, criticising Modi for organising a gala event on completion of NDA government’s two years.
