Vadra accused the government of raking the "decade-old issue" instead of focusing on 'real people's issue'.
UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law and businessman Robert Vadra reacted to the FIR lodged against him on Saturday under the Gurgaon land deal case.
Vadra accused the government of raking the "decade-old issue", involving Vadra and former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, instead of focusing on "real people's issue".
"Election season, increase in oil prices... so let’s divert real people’s issues with my decade-old issue. What’s new?" Vadra told reporters.
An FIR against Hooda, Vadra, Director Skylight Hospitality Pvt Ltd and DLF, among others, was registered on Saturday at Kherki Daula police station in Gurgaon, Manesar Deputy Commissioner of Police Rajesh Kumar told PTI.

"We received a complaint today from one Surinder Sharma, a resident of Nuh, in which he alleged irregularities in the land deals," he said.
The Manohar Lal Khattar-led BJP government had set up a commission in 2015 to probe into the licences given by the earlier Hooda-led Congress government for the development of housing colonies and commercial complexes in four Gurgaon villages.
