Land deal inquiry politically motivated: Hooda

 Ex-Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said the state government's action in ordering an investigation into alleged land scam in the state was "politically motivated".

He has been summoned by the Justice S.N. Dhingra Commission of Inquiry, which was set up last year to probe the grant of commercial licences to a number of private companies, including Skylight Hospitality of Congress president Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra and DLF.
Hooda has been asked to appear before panel by March 23.
After receiving summons, Hooda lashed out at BJP Government in state, and said it would not achieve anything.
"There can be no second opinion on this," Hooda told reporters.
"Otherwise, why should there be a commission for one or two villages. Everyone knows who is their target, but they will not achieve anything," he added.
