New Delhi/Bhopal: Janata Party supremo Subramanian Swamy has attacked the ruling Congress at the Centre by demanding an SIT inquiry into the Herald land scam in Bhopal.
As per reports, the plot of land that was sold at a concessional rate to the newspaper was used to build a shopping mall, Zee News reported.
CNN-IBN stated that the BJP-led government in Madhya Pradesh (MP) is planning to take the plot back.
Swamy had earlier heaped charges of corruption against Congress president Sonia Gandhi and general secretary Rahul Gandhi over Associated Journals that once published National Herald and Qaumi Awaaz newspapers.
In the wake of Swamy's charges, the MP government too has reportedly been planning to take back the properties built on the land allotted in 1981 to Associated Journals by the then Arjun Singh-led Congress government.
