  • Website credits Amit Shah's political stature for son Jay Shah's rise, faces defamation suit

Raju told ANI that the hearing in the case will be held on October 11.

A day after a media report claimed alleged irregularities by a company owned by BJP national president Amit Shah's son Jay Shah, the latter filed a criminal defamation suit against a news website.

In a statement released by the BJP on Sunday evening, Jay Shah said he would file civil and criminal defamation cases against The Wire's owners, its editor, and the author of the article, and sue them for Rs100 crore in damages.

His statement said, "Since the website has proceeded in making an absolutely false imputation in a highly slanted article thereby damaging my reputation, I have made a decision to prosecute the Author, Editor/(s) and the Owner/(s) of the aforesaid news website for criminal defamation and sue them for an amount of Rs100 crores".

Uttam Kumar Reddy said while Narendra Modi talked about punishing money launderers and cracking down on Swiss Bank accounts, he remained silent when his own party president Amit Shah's son Jay Amitbhai Shah's income from foreign earnings rose from Rs 0 to Rs 51 crores in one year.

Union minister Piyush Goyal said Mehta had sought Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad's permission to appear for Jay and the approval was granted, according to the PTI report. Siddharth Varadarajan, the editor and co-founder of The Wire, tweeted why "private citizen" Jay Shah was consulting the government lawyer instead of consulting his CA (chartered accountant), posting a screenshot of the (very polite) correspondence between Rohini Singh and Jay Shah on WhatsApp. Mr. Chavan demanded that Mr. Shah resign by taking a cue from three past BJP presidents, who quit following allegations of corruption.

"Secondly, if the company had increased its profits manifold, then why did it wind up in October 2016?" It says that IREDA can only sanction projects up to 1MW, while Jay Shah's company, Kusum Finserve, submitted a proposal for a 2.1-MW plant in Ratlam, Madhya Pradesh.

A political storm has erupted after the article titled "Golden touch of Jay Amit shah" was published.
