Haryana’s whistleblower IAS officer Ashok Khemka has now sought certain documents pertaining to the land deal between Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra’s company and the real estate giant DLF, so that he can “appropriately assist the state government”.
The inquiry committee, constituted by the state to look into the land deal, which was cancelled by Khemka, had not sought the IAS officer’s comments before finalising the report.
In a communication addressed to Chief Secretary PK Chaudhery, Khemka, has sought directions for Town and Country Planning department to supply him various documents, including policy for issue of license (conditions required to be fulfilled by the applicant seeking license); application of M/s Skylight Hospitality Ltd (including Letter of Intent dated March 28, 2008; License No LC 1868A issued on December 15, 2008; Renewal of license on January 18, 2011 and permission to sell the license on April 3, 2012); name of DG and Principal Secretary of TCP department at the time of renewal of license (January 18, 2011).
Khemka further demanded “documents supplied by M/s Skylight Hospitality Ltd to the TCP informing the department about entering into an agreement-to-sell with M/s DLF Universal Limited on or before June 3, 2008 and receiving sales consideration from M/s DLF Universal Ltd.”.
Khemka also demanded that the TCP department should submit him a “list of other cases where the TCP granted or renewed license after the applicant had entered into an agreement-to-sell and received some amount as part-sale consideration before the grant or renewal of the license”.
“I was the one who had cancelled the mutation. The government constitutes a committee, which has submitted its report without even asking me. I have now asked for certain documents, so that I can assist the government”, Khemka told The Indian Express.
