The Centre and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday faced a political storm after a news website reported that a company run by party chief Amit Shah’s son, Jay Amit Shah, recorded 16,000 times increase in turnover in only a year after Narendra Modi became the prime minister and the senior Shah the party president.
The website, The Wire, said its findings were based on filings with the Registrar of Companies (RoC). The report, The Golden Touch of Jay Amit Shah, was published on Sunday morning. The Congress and other political parties demanded an official probe into the issue.
In a statement that the BJP released in the evening, Jay said he would be filing civil and criminal defamation
