"There is a clear-cut political witch-hunt.. The more they hound me the more apparent it is becoming that they are using their attacks on me as a political tool whenever they need to divert public attention" On the probe in Haryana where the one-man Justice S N Dhingra Commission is looking into grant of land licences to some companies including that of Vadra’s in four villages of Gurgaon Vadra said he had not received any notices so far but has read the media reports in this regard "I will deal with the notices from the inquiry and the ED as and when I receive them Since these proceedings involve legal issues I would not like to make any comment on them at this stage" he said The BJP government in Haryana had in May set up the Dhingra Commission to probe alleged irregularities in grant of licences by the Department of Town and Country Planning to some companies including that of Vadra in Sector 83 of Gurgaon for developing commercial colonies during the previous Congress government of Bhupinder Singh Hooda The Dhingra Commission has been asked to probe subsequent transfer or disposal of the lands allegations of private enrichment ineligibility of beneficiaries under the rules and other connected matters bringing Vadra’s land deal under the scanner Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on November 17 said the Commission will soon submit its report Vadra said he has the highest respect for the process of law and expressed confidence that "the truth will eventually prevail over any political witch-hunt" He said "whatever I have or have not done is in the public domain for everyone to see Even the so-called facts forming part of media campaigns were based on information that I had myself provided to the ROC (Registrar of Companies) and other agencies" He cited the example of debates repeatedly being held on "why I sold certain portions of land for a profit in an area where every single other buyer and seller of land made the same if not more profit during the same period of time Those other transactions were never debated" Insisting that his work had nothing to do with politics of his in-laws Vadra said "I have always conducted my business strictly in accordance with the law and have been more transparent Why am I being singled out" He said the media should make a "distinction between me as an individual conducting a business as anyone else would and my wife’s family in politics without constantly attempting to link the two" He also expressed regret for aggressively brushing aside a journalist when questioned over allegations against him "Perhaps I got more worked up over it than I should have I regret that but I am human too and cannot always remain calm in the face of all sorts of wild accusations being directed at me I wish him all the best" On the controversy with regard to his being on the VVIP list to be exempted from frisking at airports he maintained that he had "never ‘enjoyed’ the special treatment" and "never availed it" He added "I am not a VIP nor do I want to be treated like one" On current political and social atmosphere in the country Vadra said "I generally stay away from politics but just as an ordinary citizen I feel that the prevailing social disturbance in our country is very sad" He said that "to try to control freedom expression and the rights of individuals to practice their own religion or to live and eat and pray as they wish to is an outdated idea It stops progress and stunts development" PTI Written by Kimi Dangor | Published: March 11 2015 12:00 am Anamika Khanna; her sketch of a garment from Lakme Fashion Week finale

completely deconstruct that image” says Khanna The collection will see the designer revert to a “purity of form It’s a collection of contrasts I’ve taken Indian shapes deconstructed them and re-moulded and sculpted them in a very organic way There is a marked contrast between structure and fluidity” she says The distinction will also be seen in the colour palette where Khanna’s favourite ivory will meet black gunmetal and a splash of pretty pastels in her trademark muslin and organza Her forte lies in embroideries and this collection will also see zardozi embroidery given sculptural
