Amit Shah must quit as BJP chief for 'fair inquiry': Congress

Amit Shah must quit as BJP chief for 'fair inquiry': Congress”

Meanwhile, additional solicitor general Tushar Mehta has said he may represent Jay Shah in the matter.

The report that the online portal The Wire was about business dealings of Shah Jr and his firm Temple Enterprise Private Ltd.

As BJP president Amit Shah's wife Sonal Shah also had a stake in the company, all the suspicious financial transactions involved the entire family of BJP's national president, he said.

Amit Shah' son also says that: "I have chose to prosecute the Author Editor/(s) and the owners of the aforesaid news website for criminal defamation and sue them for an amount of Rs 100 cores".

The protest rally organised here was a part of the CPI-M's countrywide protests against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

"It is odd that on the one hand, small and medium industries were winding up business as a fall out of BJP-led Central Government's hastily and faultly executed demonetization and GST, Amit Shah's son's firm was making a huge jump in profit within one year, after the BJP came into power", said Maken. The following year (2015-16), its turnover jumped to a whopping Rs80 crore, he said.

He said a probe should be initiated to reveal the truth.

On IREDA, OpIndia says the public enterprise is meant "to promote, develop and extend financial assistance for renewable energy and energy efficiency/conservation projects". Siddharth Varadarajan, the editor and co-founder of The Wire, tweeted why "private citizen" Jay Shah was consulting the government lawyer instead of consulting his CA (chartered accountant), posting a screenshot of the (very polite) correspondence between Rohini Singh and Jay Shah on WhatsApp. 25 crore to Kusum Finserv, a limited liability partnership, in which Jay Shah had a 60 per cent stake, even though this company had no prior experience of operating in the power sector.

Senior lawyer and Congress MP Kapil Sibal is quoted by The Hindu as saying, "We would like to ask the Prime Minister to explain the Shah model of business".

"Secondly, if the company had increased its profits manifold, then why did it wind up in October 2016?" The report, The Golden Touch of Jay Amit Shah, was published on Sunday morning.
