Coming out in support of Arvind Kejriwal over his allegations against Robert Vadra,Anna Hazare on Saturday asked why Congress is fearing a judicial probe in the matter if they are sure that the charges are false.

“Many Congress leaders are saying that these allegations are politically motivated and are without basis. If the allegations are untrue,then why is the Congress fearing a probe ? Let Vadra face an agnipariksha. Let a judicial probe be conducted. The facts will automatically come out. If it is found that the allegations are baseless,then Vadra is free to file a defamation suit against Kejriwal,” Hazare said.

Hazare’s remarks came against the backdrop of Kejriwal levelling allegations on Friday that Vadra had bought property worth crores of rupees with an “unsecured interest free loan” of Rs 65 crore given by realty major DLF.

He said when they raised allegations against 15 “corrupt” ministers earlier,the government noted that there was no case in them.

“Now,two of the ministers are out. The coal scam is out. The whole country has seen it,” he said.
