Controversy

Allegations of helping a construction company to win contracts in Rajasthan

In 2011, a series of allegations were levelled against Sonia Gehlot and Gautam Ankhad by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). In the allegations, BJP claimed that Sonia and Gautam, through their connections in the Rajasthan government, helped Kalpataru Group win several contracts in the state. The party also claimed that for aiding Kalapataru Group to win the contracts, the couple was rewarded with a posh flat worth Rs 8 crore in Mumbai; however, Ashok Gehlot denied all the allegations saying that the allegations were false and were deliberately levied by the opposition and a few media houses against his kin. In its defence, the Kalpataru Group claimed that Sonia was given the flat in lieu of her fees as an architect who worked for the company.
