Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday took a dig at the BJP and the government over the latter extending legal help to party chief Amit Shah’s son in a defamation case he has filed against a news website over a report about his financial dealings. “State legal help for Shah-Zada! Why this, why this Kolaveri Da?,” he tweeted.

He also tagged a news report entitled “Jay Amit Shah Attempts to Gag ‘The Wire‘, the news portal which had carried a report on a firm linked to the BJP chief’s son seeing a huge jump in turnover after the saffron party came to power at the Centre in 2014.

Jay Shah has filed a criminal defamation case in a metropolitan court in Ahmedabad against the portal, its journalists and the company that runs it. Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta has been granted government permission to represent him in the case.

Gandhi and the Congress have mounted an all-out attack against Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi over Jay Shah’s financial dealings. They have repeatedly questioned the prime minister’s “silence” on the issue.

The Congress also demanded Shah’s sacking and a probe by two Supreme Court judges into the entire episode.

        CAN THE RULING GOVT TELL THE CITIZENS UNDER WHAT AUTHORITY an attorney general being assigned to fight the defamation case for jay shah.,a Pvt citizen.IF IS IS NORMAL THEN EVERY INDIAN CITIZEN MUST BE ALLOWED TO ASSIGN AG TO FIGHT THEIR CASE. ALSO THE AG MUST RELINQUISH HIS OFFICE TO AVOID CONFLICT OF INTERESTS. IT IS SHOCKING AND APPALLING THAT THE GOVT IS DEFENDING CORRUPTION. WHAT THEY ARE AFRAID OF. SHAME ON BJP . THE GOVT MUST MUST COME CLEAN ON WHO IS GOING TO PAY THE LEGAL COSTS. BJP HAS DUG THEIR GRAVE FOR GUJRAT POLL FOR SURE. THEY ARE USING ALL TACTICS TO TO DELAY ANNOUNCING THE ELECTION DATE.
