Hyderabad: TPCC president N. Uttam Kumar Reddy on Tuesday demanded a judicial probe into the alleged multi crore scam involving BJP president Amit Shah’s son Jay Amit Shah.
Speaking to the media after leading a protest at Ambedkar statue, Mr Reddy said that the growth in revenue by 16,000 times and loans by 4,000 per cent in Jay Shah’s company Temple Enterprise Pvt. Ltd. after the NDA came to power clearly indicated large-scale corruption and a major scam.
He said Temple Enterprise was incorporated in 2004 with Jay Shah and Jitendra Shah listed as its directors. BJP president Amit Shah’s wife, Sonal Shah, also had a stake in the company.
“Therefore, all the suspicious financial transactions involve the family of the BJP’s national president,” Mr Reddy said, demanding the Centre constitute a Special Investigating Team, headed by two sitting judges of the Supreme Court, to conduct the probe.
The TPCC chief also demanded Prime Minister Narendra Modi direct the BJP president to resign from all posts to facilitate a free and fair inquiry into the scam.
