The land, the Haryana government said, belonged to a private party, and not the government. “An attempt is being made to sensationalise” the issues that were in public domain and pending in the Supreme Court and Punjab and Haryana high court, DLF said. The HC's verdict against one of its SEZs, which Kejriwal referred to, was stayed by the SC, the company said. Kejriwal alleged that a new company — DLF SEZ Holdings Pvt Ltd — was set up in 2007 and allotted 350 acres by Haryana. One of Vadra’s companies acquired 50% shares of the company in 2008 which were sold back to DLF a year later, he alleged.
Kejriwal's press conference, in which some of the villagers whose lands were acquired were present, was followed by a series of rebuttals. “Who will authenticate the documents being given by him everyday… Kejriwal should reveal the source of funding of his campaign,” Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi said.
