PANAJI

Questioning the silence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the alleged scam against Jay Shah, son of BJP national president Amit Shah, the Congress on Thursday demanded that Amit Shah should step down as the BJP chief in order to make way for a fair inquiry into the matter.

“If there is nothing to hide, what stops Amit Shah from stepping down and allowing a probe to happen; a probe which will perhaps clear his son. But we must always remember, Caesar’s wife should be above suspicion,” said the national spokesperson of the party Priyanka Chaturvedi while speaking to media persons in Panaji.

It may be recalled that recently a national news website alleged that Jay Shah’s company turnover grew from Rs 50,000 to a whopping Rs 80.5 crore within12 months, seeking an unsecured loan from a non-banking financial firm.

“Now that corruption has reached to the man who has been sitting next to the PM since Gujarat days, will Prime Minister Modi seek his resignation as BJP president,” she questioned.

Chaturvedi further questioned as to why he is protecting Jay Shah, adding that she said, “What stops the Prime Minister from seeking accountability from a person he is closest to? And someone who perhaps compromises his entire branding of zero tolerance to corruption.”

She said that Modi should not use enforcement agencies like Central Bureau of Investigation and Income Tax department to silence the opposition and instead he should utilize their services to probe people like Jay Shah.
