The CPI(M) today said the and the ED should probe the financial dealings of firms linked to chief Amit Shah's son to show that the agencies are "not selective" in their action.

"At a time when the is going after various businessmen and opposition politicians on corruption and charges of laundering through investigations by the CBI, ED and the department, the way they are handling Jay Shah's case is in glaring contrast," former party general secretary alleged.

In an editorial in the latest issue of the CPI(M) organ 'Peoples Democracy', Karat also compared Jay Amit Shah's case with that of chief Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law, saying "commentators have observed similarities with some aspects of the Robert Vadra case where also unsecured loans and official favouritism were involved".

He said the "must investigate the affairs of his (Jay Shah's) companies. The and the ED must be put on the job to at least show that they are not selective about tracking down economic offenders."

Accusing the of "shielding" the corrupt, the CPI(M) leader said the response of the BJP-led government was "similar to that of the UPA government and the Congress".

He said the "is out in force to deny any wrongdoing on the part of their president's son..... The attitude of the in the face of all such charges is to deny any misconduct or bribery.
