    After Rs 170 crore to BJP, real estate firm DLF got ‘clean chit’ in Vadra deal from Haryana

    In a startling revelation, the Election Commission’s fresh electoral bond data has uncovered intricate connections between real estate giant DLF Group and the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

    The Controversial Donations

    DLF donated a staggering sum of Rs 170 crore to the BJP between October 2019 and November 2022, raising eyebrows and igniting concerns about potential conflicts of interest.

    The Vadra Deal Probe

    The donations come amidst an ongoing investigation into alleged corruption and fraud in land deals involving DLF Group and businessman Robert Vadra, the son-in-law of Congress leader Sonia Gandhi.

    The Land Deals Under Scrutiny

    The land deals trace back to 2012 when DLF agreed to purchase land from Vadra’s firm, Skylight Hospitality, at a considerable premium, raising significant concerns about potential irregularities.

    The Government’s Response

    The case, filed by the Haryana police in September 2018, took a surprising turn when the BJP-led state government informed the High Court in April 2023 that it found no violations in the deals. However, the government later clarified that this was not a “clean chit” and announced the formation of a new special investigation team (SIT) to probe the matter further.

    Calls for Transparency

    Critics argue that such sizable contributions raise serious questions about the impartiality of the government’s handling of the investigation into the Vadra deal, especially given DLF’s exclusive donations to the BJP.

    The Enforcement Directorate’s Involvement

    The recent search of DLF offices by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with a separate money laundering probe against Supertech Group further complicates the situation, raising concerns about systemic corruption within the real estate sector.

    Urgency of Inquiry

    The recent complaint by the High Court regarding the sluggish pace of the investigation underscores the urgency of resolving the case promptly and ensuring justice is served.


    As questions swirl around the integrity of the investigation and the potential influence of electoral donations on governmental decisions, authorities must conduct a transparent and impartial inquiry into the allegations. The nexus between big corporations and political parties must be thoroughly investigated to uphold the principles of justice, accountability, and democracy.

    DLF Group has been contacted for comment, and this article will be updated accordingly pending their response.
