Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is an amazing bargainer, suggest reports. It was 14 years back that she convinced the Vajpayee government to reduce her 2,765 sqm House rent to Rs. 8,888 from ‘Rs 53,421.
According to TOI, Striking a hard bargain, Gandhi had said that it was “beyond her capacity to pay the high amount”.
Priyanka had written to the government in May 2002, saying that Rs. 53,421 was too high an amount for her to pay since it was ”beyond her paying capacity”.
Besides Priyanka, three others – former Punjab DGP KPS Gill, All India Anti-Terrorist Front chief MS Bitta and Punjab Kesari editor Ashwani Kumar, who were provided accommodation by the government on security grounds, raised similar concerns.
