Robert Vadra bought benami lands in other persons’ names, Vadra’s right hand man reveals in Republic TV sting

Republic TV talked to Vadra's agent Mahesh Nagar, who had had the power of attorney by Skylight Hospitality

Several details of Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s brother-in-law Robert Vadra’s shady land dealings have unearthed in a sting operation conducted by Republic TV. Over a two-week period, a team of Republic talked to several people linked to Vadra’s land deals, and they have revealed several explosive details.

The channel talked to two brothers separately, Mahesh Nagar and Lalit Nagar, and they made some sensational admissions which were caught on camera. Mahesh Nagar was the man through which Robert Vadra conducted the land deals, and he had the power of attorney by Skylight Hospitality, the company owned by Vadra. Both the brothers are Congress leaders, and Lalit Nagar is sitting MLA from Haryana.

Mahesh Nagar said that Robert Vadra used different fronts and names for his land deals. When asked if he was saving a Gandhi family, Mahesh said that Vadra has not purchased any land in his (Mahesh Nagar’s) name, but said that Vadra has kept land in his company’s name or some other person’s name.

When asked why Vadra was not buying land in own name, Nagar said, “How will he go to every place? This is my work. To decide the land. The location. What is the rate? He will not do this. He has to send someone.”

In another expose by the sting operation, it has been found that Robert Vadra’s Bikaner land deal, which is already under probe by ED, may have been obtained from farmers by looting and duping them. In that case, one person names Ashok Kumar has been arrested for irregularities in the deal. Mahesh Nagar said that he knows Ashok Kumar, and he was given a cheque from Vadra’s company. He said the land was purchased by Ashok Kumar, from whom he purchased it, and later Sky Light Hospitality purchased the same. “My simple work was when the registry would take place, I used to be the signatory. And I was given the cheque”, Mahesh Nagar said on camera.

Earlier OpIndia had published an exclusive report with documents showing that Mahesh Nagar had signed on purchase documents on behalf of Robert Vadra.

In another conversation, Mahesh Nagar said that Rahul Gandhi had also bought land through him. He said, “He was interested in buying land so he bought it. Then he sold it off.”

Nagar also talked about the payment model used by Robert Vadra in land deals done through other persons. When asked whether Vadra bought land through HL Pahwa and whether Vadra gave money to Pahwa and then to Mahesh Nagar, he says, “This was earlier. This was since Indira Gandhi days. Pahwa goes back to those days. I don’t know much about those times. I only know about my deals with him. The one that was done here, Haryana, Palwal, Faridabad, Rajasthan.” When asked whether his commission came from Robert Vadra, Mahesh Nagar replies with “yes”.

He also said that he was getting money from HL Pahwa, who is deeply involved with the Gandhi-Vadra family in land deals. He had sold land to Priyanka Gandhi, and later bought the same at much higher price. Mahesh Nagar confirmed that HL Pahwa, Robert Vadra and himself were linked with each other in various land deals.

In the sting videos, Lalit Nagar said that he saved the Gandhi family, but didn’t disclose how. But he admitted that if he changes his statement, they will be in trouble. Lalit Nagar admitted that he is very close to Priyanka and Robert Vadra.
