The Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) has demanded resignation of BJP president Amit Shah to enable a free and fair inquiry against his son Jay Shah's firm as its turnover shot up to Rs 80-crore from Rs 50,000 in a year's time. National news portal The Wire recently in its reports claimed that Jay Shah's business had reported a surprising growth since the BJP came to power in 2014.

BJP president Amit Shah today defended his son Jay Shah, saying, "there is no question of corruption in the business dealings of Jay (Shah)".

Defending Jay, railway minister and the BJP leader, Piyush Goyal, said: "We reject any allegation sought to be made against Shri Amit Shah's son Jay Shah". This company is completely in commodity business, where turnover is more while the profit is less. "There is no question of money laundering". "And after doing a turnover of Rs 80 crore, they don't tell how much they made profit", Amit Shah said at an "India Today" event "Gujarat Panchayat" here.

The Congress party on Thursday accused Narendra Modi-led government of using the investigating agencies like Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Income Tax as a "tool to silence opposition". Why did they not gather the courage to file such cases. The loans, he said, were not unsecured but a line of credit.

In his application, Jay prayed for, "criminal action against the respondents for defaming and tarnishing the reputation of the complainant through an article, which is scandalous, frivolous, misleading, derogatory, libelous and consisting of several defamatory statements". When asked about Jay's company securing unsecured loans, Shah said it was not unsecured loans.
