The Election Commission has only said that there was no violation of the model code of conduct in the Vadra land deal in Haryana, and does not “absolve” the Congress of “10 years of loot”, former IAS officer Ashok Khemka has said.

Speaking to The Economic Times, Khemka said that that the EC had ruled that there was no violation of the model code as the transaction had been completed on July 16 before the elections were announced. He added: “Ten years of loot can't be absolved just like that. EC has only said that there was no poll code violation. This is not a clean chit (for Vadra)." Khemka has been transferred 44 times in a career spanning 23 years.
