THE HOME ADVANTAGE Singh rejected demands for probe into the alleged extraordinary spike in the turnover of a company owned by Jay Shah after the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance, describing them as “baseless”. “All these allegations are baseless and there is no truth in them. Earlier also there were a number of charges made against him (Amit Shah). No probe is required in the issue,” Singh said after inaugurating the National Investigation Agency headquarters in the Capital. BASELESS, REPEATS LAW MINISTER Singh’s use of the word baseless was the thrust of the law minister’s interaction with reporters in Kochi. Jay Shah had done nothing wrong in his business, Prasad said. “What’s happening now is that a conspiracy has been hatched and allegations of corruption against Jay Shah have been made. Already he has filed a defamation suit to the tune of Rs 100 crore.”
Prasad said Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi has no moral right to level these allegations “because he himself is on bail in a corruption case. He also should not forget that there are cases of corruption against his brother in law (Robert Vadra)”. Prasad arrived here to take part in the state-wide “Jana Raksha Yatra”, or “March for People’s Protection”, which began from Kannur on October 3 and will end in Thiruvananthapuram on October 17. THE WIRE KEEPS AT IT Meanwhile, the website that started it all with its October 8 report on Jay Shah on Tuesday raised questions on the permission given to Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta to provide legal assistance to Jay Shah in the Rs 100-crore criminal defamation suit he has filed against seven persons in connection with the wire report.
