In this editorial episode, Mr. Sujit Nair raises the question of why the Gandhis have not been arrested yet, referring to BJP’s claims in 2014 about the alleged corruption of the Gandhi family. Back then, the BJP questioned how Robert Vadra, Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law, accumulated Rs. 300 crore with an initial investment of Rs. 1 lakh during an economic slowdown. Ravi Shankar Prasad, a senior BJP leader, highlighted concerns about Vadra’s land deals in collaboration with Congress governments in Haryana and Rajasthan. While the BJP has not filed a case against Vadra in Rajasthan after winning the state from the Congress, Prasad emphasized that they are conducting a fair inquiry without resorting to vendetta. The BJP intensified its campaign against Vadra, releasing a booklet and a film dramatizing the allegations. Prasad criticized the Congress for not adequately responding to the accusations, urging Sonia and Rahul Gandhi to address the questions raised by the BJP. The BJP alleges that Vadra’s business model involves “”kleptocratic rentiering”” through government discretionary licensing and changes in land use permissions, labeling it crony capitalism. Prasad asserted that the Gandhis should clarify Vadra’s land deals and address various legal violations, including those under the Prevention of Corruption Act, the Indian Penal Code, the Registration Act, and the Companies Act. The BJP accused the Gandhi family of undermining institutions, harming honest individuals, and rewarding corruption, pointing out questionable post-retirement appointments in the Haryana Chief Minister’s Office.
