INC usurped land in Mumbai meant for Dalits

In a big blow to the Gandhi family, incriminating documents have been accessed which show irregularities in a land purchase in Mumbai by INC. According to the documents, the grand old party had procured over 3,500 square metres of land, which was meant for a Dalit hostel, at throwaway prices and constructed a commercial property over it decades later.

Media has accessed exclusive documents which show the Enforcement Directorate (ED) had attached around 3,478 square metres of land belonging to the Gandhis in Mumbai. The land was procured through Associated Journals Limited (AJL) at throwaway prices in 1983.

The massive land is located in Mumbai’s plush Bandra East locality and according to a 2017 estimate, it is worth a staggering Rs 262 crore.

According to a 1967 detailed proposal, the land was sanctioned for the construction of a hostel for Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe students by the then government.

However, the land was purchased through the AJL in 1983 and no construction was done on it for the next 17 years. It was in 2000 that a commercial building was constructed on the land.

The document also mentions that there was a construction limit of maximum 20,000 sq ft on the property but INC erected a commercial structure occupying over 80,000 sq ft of land.

Usually, the government receives 50% revenue from the commercial establishments while the remaining revenue is retained by the owner of the property.

However, in this case, Gandhi parivar keeps 70% of the revenue from the property and shares only 30% with the government.

Priyanka denies claims of extending her stay at govt accommodation

INC leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra Tuesday denied seeking more time to vacate her 35, Lodhi Estate bungalow after Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep Singh Puri claimed that a “powerful INC leader” had requested him to extend her stay by allocating the government accommodation to another INC leader.

“Facts speak for themselves! A powerful Congress leader with much clout in the Party called me on 4 July 2020 at 12:05 pm to request that 35, Lodhi Estate be allotted to another INC MP so that Priyanka Vadra can stay on. Let’s not sensationalise everything please,” Puri tweeted.

Priyanka was quick to respond and said she would vacate the bungalow by 1 August. “If someone called you Mr Puri, I thank them for their concern, and thank you for your consideration as well but it still does not change the facts: I have made no such request, and I am making no such request. As I said, I will be vacating the house by the 1st of August as required in the eviction letter,” she said in a tweet.
