Supreme Court must probe Jay Shah deals, says Congress

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday rejected demands for probe into the alleged extraordinary spike in the turnover of a company owned by BJP President Amit Shah's son Jay Shah after NDA came to power, describing them as "baseless".

As BJP president Amit Shah's wife Sonal Shah also had a stake in the company, all the suspicious financial transactions involved the entire family of BJP's national president, he said. It's not the RBI, the poor or the farmers.

He asked what is the business of Temple Enterprises, which is owned by the wife of BJP chief Amit Shah, his daughter-in-law and son Jay Shah that it increased its turnover by 16,000 times in one year? It's the Shah-in-Shah of Demo.

The next hearing for a court inquiry will be on October 11 when two witnesses from Jay Shah's side who had first informed him about the publication of the article are likely to depose.
