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).

The following year (2015-16), its turnover jumped to a whopping Rs80 crore, he said.

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.
