As the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) steps up its campaign in Haryana, it is also upping the ante on the controversy surrounding the land deals of Robert Vadra, Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law in the Congress-ruled northern state.

Haryana will probably go to the polls along with Parliamentary elections this year. Aam Aadmi Party leader Yogendra Yadav, who has been campaigning in Haryana for the last few days, demanded an independent investigation into Vadra's land deals in Haryana.

Yogendra Yadav said land-related corruption was the biggest issue in Haryana and it “appears the AAP is not hesitating from making this a campaign issue,” despite the Congress being its coalition partner in the neighbouring government in Delhi.

Yadav and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal have their roots in Haryana. Yadav said that scams like the one involving Vadra take place everyday in Haryana.

The AAP has been garnering support in Haryana and the party hopes it will not only make substantial gains in the Lok Sabha elections but also in the assembly poll.

The party has announced its plans to contest all 90 seats in the state legislature and the 10 parliamentary seats. Yadav said the party would like people like Ashok Khemka, the Haryana IAS officer who cancelled the mutation of Robert Vadra's land deal with DLF in 2012, to join the AAP.
