The full text of the statement issued by Robert Vadra, Congress President Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law, on the allegations over his property dealings with DLF:
"I am a private law abiding citizen who has been engaged in business over the last 21 years.
The allegations levelled against me by Shri Kejriwal and Shri Bhushan are utterly false, entirely baseless and defamatory. My business transactions are fully reflected in financial statements filed before appropriate government authorities in compliance with the law.
They are available in the public domain to anyone interested in knowing the truth
I am saddened by the attempt of Shri Kejriwal and Shri Bhushan to deliberately misrepresent numbers contained in my financial statements, manufacture lies and malign my family in order to gain cheap publicity for them and for the launch of their political party."
This statement a day after he broke his silence over the controversy surrounding his property dealings, in a post on a social networking site: "Thank you so much for your concern. I am fine and can handle all the negativity. I have lost people I loved, what can be worse."
