Delhi BJP MLA Karan Singh Tanwar on Wednesday alleged that the Congress 'influenced' the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) to allot the two multi-level parking at Sarojini Nagar and Baba Kharak Singh Marg and the Chanakya Cinema complex to DLF at throwaway prices at the behest of Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Congress president Sonia Gandhi.
Tanwar did not have any documents to back his claims but he said that the fact that DLF landed the deals at such low prices smacks of a scandal.
He claimed that in the case of the Chanakyapuri cinema complex tender, DLF got the area despite the fact that it was not the highest bidder.
Accusing the Delhi government of impropriety, he said 7,000 square metres of prime land on Baba Kharak Singh Marg was given out at a paltry licence fee of Rs. 22 lakh per year and the 4,000-square metre land in Sarojini Nagar Market was given to the developer at Rs. 15 lakh licence fee.
"Land does not come under our jurisdiction. We have nothing to do with it," said a chief minister's aide.
The DLF refused to comment on the issue.
"The projects were given at the behest of chief minister Sheila Dikshit, Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her son-in-law Robert Vadra. The top officials of NDMC are involved in the conspiracy to benefit DLF into getting the best deals at minimum rates," Tanwar claimed.
Tanwar, also a BJP member of NDMC, also charged former council chairperson Parimal Rai with relaxing norms to hand the deals to DLF in order to "oblige the Congress".
"The allotments of these areas was a huge scandal," he said.
He claimed that the CBI had filed an FIR in one of these cases against former NDMC chairman Parimal Rai.
"But, he is still free because Sheila Dikshit is shielding him," he alleged.
