Rebel MLA Aditi Singh alleges ‘land scam’ by Congress, reports to EOW





Rebel Congress MLA Aditi Singh has alleged a scam by the Congress, claiming irregularities in the functioning of the Kamala Nehru Educational Society. She has claimed that the land was obtained “illegally”.

Singh has written to the DG of Economic Offences Wing, UP police, seeking an investigation into the financial irregularity of the society.

Speaking on Republic TV, the Congress MLA claimed that not only land was acquired illegally but also 600 people living there have been asked to evacuate the land.

Pointing fingers at the party’s interim chief Sonia Gandhi, Singh asserted it would be “impossible” for Congress to claim innocence since its president has been MP of Rae Bareli for many years now.

“They (Congress) have got the freehold registration of the land illegally. After they got the land converted to freehold, they have had two sale agreements, in order to sell this piece of land which was given by the government. Why is Kamala Nehru Education Society trying to sell off this land which was leased to it only to have an academic institute?” Singh questioned. 

BJP Spokesperson Tom Vadakkan has reacted sharply to the allegation.  “The first family of the Congress party appears to be a serial offender on matters of land. This is not something new that has happened. It was the son-in-law who was leading the front. For 46 years there was a girls college that was supposed to come up in that location, nothing happened. Some people are staying there, there are shops and now they have been served notices.”
