Stepping up its offensive on Amit Shah over allegations that a firm owned by his son saw a huge rise in turnover after the BJP came to power in 2014, the Congress today asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to remove him as BJP chief and order a probe by Supreme Court judges.
"A commission of two sitting Supreme Court judges should probe the allegations in connection with the firm of BJP president's son Amit Shah's son Jay," newly-appointed AICC general secretary in-charge of Madhya Pradesh Deepak Babaria said in a press conference here.
"These are testing times for PM Narendra Modi now. Will he choose party politics and friend or stand for truth and morality?," he asked.
Babaria said to clear the way for an impartial probe into the case, the prime minister should ask Amit Shah to resign immediately.
"In the interest of the country, an impartial probe into the allegations is necessary to ensure that the guilty is punished and the innocent don't become a part of the sin," he added.
