Attacking the Bharatiya Janata Party over the alleged leak of Dhingra commission report in the Robert Vadra case, Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad on Saturday called it a political vendetta of the worst order. While addressing a press conference, Azad said he cannot believe that BJP can go so low. According to the reports by news agency ANI, Azad added that Congress had proof against BJP leaders and their kins but never used it to harass them.
“We had proof of a number of leaders, had proof of their kins too but we never harassed them. We knew which businessman is the supporter and funder of BJP, but Congress never raided those parties. This is the political vendetta of the worst order, cannot believe they can go so low,” he was quoted as saying by ANI.

Yesterday, Congress spokeperson Abhishek Singhvi said the Punjab and Haryana High Court has issued injunction twice, on November 21 last year and again on April 26 earlier this week, restraining release of the content of the report of the commission which probed alleged irregularities in grant of land licenses to a firm owned by Robert Vadra, the son-in-law of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi. “Vadra had not received any notice or summon from the Dhingra Commission. It is to commit the contempt of court if you publish the content of Dhingra report. They are making these selective, opportunistic, planted and directed leaks for what is known as damnation by innuendo and insinuation,” he told ANI.
Responding to these serious allegations, Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu told the news agency PTI, “We don’t have the habit of leaking out… This government believes in transparency and does not interfere in the legal process. We don’t run after individuals.” Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad also rubbished these charges by saying, “We don’t
want to target anyone and nor do we want to usher vendetta against anyone. This is a suggestion for action for Haryana government.”
