What The Wire story alleges against Jay, Amit Shah's son

The BJP has dispatched key leaders and ministers to Kerala for the Jan Raksha Yatra

In Kerala Provocative Slogans Raised During BJP's Jan Raksha Yatra

After launching a "Jan Raksha Yatra" against killings of RSS and BJP cadres in Kerala, BJP president Amit Shah on Sunday led a march to the CPM headquarters here, alleging that the killings were done under political patronage to instil fear among the people and prevent the growing popularity of the BJP in the state.

The case has been filed under IPC sections 500 (defamation), 109 (abetment), 39 (voluntarily causing grievous hurt) and 120 B (criminal conspiracy). In FY 2014-15, it earned Rs 50,000 as revenue.

Three, Temple Enterprise, which [was] "in the business of import and export of agri commodities like rapeseed DOC, castor DOC meal, desi chana, soyabean, coriander seeds, rice, wheat, maize etc", according to Jay Shah's lawyer's statement to The Wire, was wound up in October 2016, despite the turnover of over Rs 80 crore.

Uttam Kumar Reddy also questioned PM Modi on how loans from Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) and Kalupur Commercial Cooperative Bank were given to Jay Amitbhai Shah's stock trading company Kusum Finserve to set up windmill plants at Ratlam in Madhya Pradesh.

Opposition parties sought a probe into claims in a media report that a company owned by BJP chief Amit Shah's son saw a huge rise in its turnover after his party came to power in 2014.

A website which is unabashedly pro-Modi government, OpIndia.com, published a rebuttal as well, in which the authors said that while The Wire story mentions the revenue, it fails to mention the "expenses incurred", which the site puts at Rs 81.99 crore, with a net loss of Rs 1.48 crore.

Goyal had said that the BJP's conscience is clear over the matter and that is why Jay Shah had filed the defamation case.

He alleged that it is the second instance where a BJP leader's child from Gujarat has been caught in a scam. Both these leaders are closely connected with PM Modi and it speaks about his integrity and honesty. He said the Mumbai-based company set up a 14.7 MW wind energy plant in Ratlam and Amit Shah's son's company is one of the seven investors.

"We are just demanding a fair inquiry into the suspicious business dealings of Jay Shah", Sharma said in Delhi.

Rohini Singh, the journalist who filed the story for The Wire, had also broken the Vadra-DLF sweetheart deal story, making it a political rallying point for the then Opposition in the BJP. He said Amit Shah's son Rs. 100 crores defamatory suit was an attempt to suppress the media and their freedom of expression.

Piyush Goyal also explained that "Jay Shah had replied with all details to author's questionnaire".

He used the controversy to take pot shots at the PM by quoting his earlier speeches and reminding people of Modi's claim of "na khaunga, na khane dunga".
