ControversyAllegations of wrongfully using her contacts: In 2011, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) accused Ashok Gehlot's daughter and son-in-law of using their contacts in the Rajasthan government to help Kalpataru Group bag several real estate contracts in the state. BJP also accused that for Sonia's assistance, she was rewarded by Kalpataru Group with a flat worth Rs 8 crore which was located in a posh locality in Mumbai. Kalpataru Group countered the allegations and said that the flat was given to Sonia as a mode of payment for her services while she worked with the organisation as an architect. Ashok Gehlot defended his daughter and son-in-law by calling the allegations false and a deliberate attempt by the BJP and some media houses to target his family. [4]India Today [5]LOKAYAT
