EVERYBODY thought that with the change of guard in Haryana, the realty giant DLF would be in problem. There is much hullabaloo in the State and newspapers regarding the alleged linkages between DLF and Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law, Robert Vadra. Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has constituted a one-man commission to dig out the truth. However, almost one-and-a-half years have passed, but the government is still in search of the truth. Insiders reveal that Khattar has a complete file on land deals regarding DLF and Vadra. Had the BJP come down strong on DLF, the realty developer would have been in amuddle. But the scenario is contrary to expectations. DLF Vice-Chairman Rajiv Singh regularly visits Chandigarh and meets ministers and officials. Haryana Government Secretariat and HUDA offices wait for his visit. Some prominent ministers have taken Singh for lunch in a five-star hotels in Chandigarh. It’s learnt that DLF has cultivated some of the top BJP and RSS functionaries and are regularly in touch with them. And so, ‘intelligent’ ministers have been conveyed to look after the interests of DLF. It seems it is rightly said in Haryana, DLF is the ruling party of the State!
