Rahul's land grabbing allegation is 'ridiculous': BJP
New Delhi [India], Dec. 24(ANI):Swatting off charges of Rahul Gandhi that the government has grabbed the lands of the tribes, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday said the allegation of the Congress vice-president is ridiculous.
"Rahul Gandhi talking of the fact that our government has taken away land from adivasi is quite ridiculous and as far as seizing land is concerned," BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra told ANI.
Patra said Gandhi's allegation remind the nation about his brother-in-law Robert Vadra of his illegal land deals across the country.
"We are all reminded of his brother-in-law Robert Vadra and he is the only person in India who is infamous because he looted the land of this country and in fact cases are going against him and recently the Rajasthan Court has ordered the Enforcement Directorate to investigate one such case," he added.
Gandhi while addressing a public rally at Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh alleged that the BJP Government in Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh have taken away lands of the adivasis (tribes). (ANI)
