[ecis2016.org] Alleging a scam, the Congress party has demanded a probe into the denotification and transfer of 400 acres of land worth Rs 3,000 crores in Gurgaon, in favour of a few individuals
Alleging a scam, Congress party spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi, on February 6, 2017, accused the BJP government in Haryana of being involved a scam and demanded an independent and comprehensive probe into the denotification of 400 acres of land worth Rs 3,000 crore in Gurgaon, allegedly to favour a few individuals.

“400 acres of land, which is virtually in Delhi – Gawal Pahari is just on the border of Delhi and Haryana – worth approximately Rs 3,000 crores, is transferred, released and re-mutated from the Gurgaon Municipal Corporation’s name to the names of several individuals on a dispute which was going on for 30 years. This is no less than a very big scam of extremely valuable land, in the immediate neighbourhood of Delhi. There should be a criminal and civil investigation in this matter,” he said.
Singhvi also demanded a probe into how the Collector, who passed the order, was promoted and given a more important post. Singhvi said that the Collector had noted, in his order of January 2, that he was acting as per the directions of the Chief Secretary and then, he was promoted. After the issue was raised, the state government started an investigation against the Collector, which was a ‘mere lip service’, as under normal circumstances, a Chief Secretary would not take a decision like this.

“This should be investigated in the shortest possible time, because the facts are startling and serious but also comic at one level. After this, the Collector is promoted as the Director, Town and Country Planning – a post that has far greater jurisdiction and powers regarding land,” he said.
An independent, unbiased body should investigate the criminal and civil aspects of what is clearly a scam and give its report within 4 to 6 weeks, he added.
