The Bharatiya Janata Party on Thursday refuted allegations levelled by the Congress against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah on their alleged links with Gujarat businessman Mahesh Shah, who recently declared over Rs 1,300 crore under the Income Declaration Scheme (IDS). In a statement to the media, Union Minister for Information Technology Ravi Shankar Prasad took on the Congress and said it is the party’s character to level false and baseless allegations. “Would like to make it clear that PM or Amit Shah ji have no connection whatsoever with businessman Mahesh Shah. Will explore legal options if Congress continues with hit and run tactic,” said Prasad.
