Congress admits to Rahul Gandhi’s land deals, but keeps mum on HL Pahwa and Sanjay Bhandari link

In this entire fiasco, the point of contention of Rahul Gandhi's links to HL Pahwa, CC Thampi and Sanjay Bhandari have still not been addressed. Another question that arises is how Rahul Gandhi is funding these land deals.

After the BJP press conference held by Minister Smriti Irani, Congress party has now come forward and accepted the land deal by Rahul Gandhi. However, they have chosen to keep mum on the seller, HL Pahwa and the Sanjay Bhandari link, as exposed by OpIndia.com.

According to Republic TV, Congress has circulated an unofficial response where Congress had admitted that Rahul Gandhi did indeed but the land as reported by OpIndia.com. The unofficial note also alleges that Rahul Gandhi had later gifted the land to Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

According to this unofficial note, After Rahul Gandhi bought the land in 2008, in 2012, Rahul Gandhi gifted the land to Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. It must be kept in mind here, that throughout the 2008 to 2012 period, Sanjay Bhandari was actively getting kickbacks under the Congress government and in fact, was actively trying to become to an off-set partner of Dassault. Dassault had rejected Sanjay Bhandari’s proposal to become the off-set partner.

While admitting the land deal, Congress has however kept mum on HL Pahwa, the seller of the land to Rahul Gandhi. HL Pahwa had also sold land to Robert Vadra and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. We had reported how this land was later sold back to HL Pahwa by Robert and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra at an inflated price. HL Pahwa, in fact, did not have the cash reserves to make good on the payment and had borrowed money from CC Thampi, who has several financial dealings with arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari.

Incidentally, this shoddy response by the Congress has made Rahul Gandhi even more complicit in this circularity of transactions. While trying to “explain” these transactions, Rahul Gandhi has made the role of the Family and Pahwa even more explicit. Priyanka Gandhi Vadra had also bought land from Pahwa and had sold it back to him at an inflated rate and so had Robert Vadra. Now, Congress had admitted that the land was purchased by Rahul Gandhi from HL Pahwa and was gifted to Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

In this entire fiasco, the point of contention of Rahul Gandhi’s links to HL Pahwa, CC Thampi and Sanjay Bhandari have still not been addressed. Another question that arises is how Rahul Gandhi is funding these land deals.
