Congress accuses Centre, Haryana of deliberately leaking Dhingra report

New Delhi: The Congress on Friday accused the central and the Haryana governments of “delibrately leaking” the Dhingra Commission report, while noting that there was a court injunction against its publication.

Singhvi accused the government of acting with a sense of vendetta

Congress spokesperson Abishek Manu Singhvi told reporters here that Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Congress President Sonia Gandhi, as also former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda had not received any notices from the commission and termed the report “null and void”.

The Justice SN Dhingra Commission, which probed grant of licences for change in land use in four villages of Gurugram, including licence granted to Skylight Hospitality Private Ltd linked to Vadra, had pointed to irregularities in the grant of licences in its report submitted to the Haryana government in August last year.

Singhvi accused the government of acting with a sense of vendetta.

“Some very strange things are happening. I can understand a government — both central and state — and a ruling party which is steeped in vendetta and blinded by rage deliberately leaking the so-called Dhingra Commission report,” he said.

He said the Punjab and Haryana High Court had issued injunctions against publication of this report and if “anyone published the report then it is a matter of contempt of court”.

Referring to the media, Singhvi said “two main people whose names you keep throwing – one is (Robert) Vadra and other is Bhupinder Singh Hooda”, but neither of them received any notices from the commission.

“And in this case, if these two facts are correct, then everything you are reading in this commission report which is leaked deliberately, it can’t be relied upon in the validity of law,” he said.

Asked about Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s daughter and Vadra’s wife Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s statement to the media on Thursday, Singhvi said it is self-explanatory.

“I am not going to add or subtract from it a word. It stands as it is…She has given you the answers because she feels pained,” he said.
