Kejriwal questions Haryana's clarification on land sale

Anti-corruption activist Arvind Kejriwal Wednesday questioned the Haryana government's clarification on a 30-acre plot sold to realty major DLF by a hospitality company, saying it should not have allowed the sale and kept the land for a hospital stipulated to come up there.

Continuing his attack on the Haryana government, Kejriwal said it could have prevented the sale of the land in Gurgaon to DLF and allowed a hospital to be built at the place.
"An honest government would have acquired it for hospital, cancelled the sale. Rather than doing this, it allowed DLF to build an SEZ," he said. 
 
Kejriwal had Tuesday released a set of documents to establish alleged quid pro quo between Haryana government and DLF, which has business links with Congress president Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra.

He had said that 30 acres of land in Gurgaon was supposed to be used for constructing a hospital but the Haryana government had issued notifications to allow DLF to use it for an SEZ.


Kejriwal added that Punjab and Haryana High Court had passed strictures against the Haryana government, terming its action “mala fide” and showing a “nexus”.
Following Kejriwal's allegations, the Haryana government had denied that it had granted favours to DLF. 

The Haryana government said Tuesday that the 30-acre land was owned by East India Hotels (EIH) and was transferred by it to DLF in 2005. It said the high court had quashed the land sale in February 2011 and the matter was pending in the Supreme Court.
