Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday took a dig at the Modi government over allegations that senior cabinet ministers were holding the posts of directors in India Foundation, a think-tank run by NSA Ajit Doval’s son Shaurya Doval.
“Shah-zada ki apar safalta ke baad, BJP ki nayi peshkash – Ajit Shaurya gatha (After the grand success of Shah-zada, BJP’s new presentation Ajit-Shaurya tale),” said Gandhi on Twitter attaching a news report.
Shah-zada referred to allegations against BJP president Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah, whose company allegedly reported a 16,000 per cent increase in its turnover in 2015-16.
The Congress on Saturday also sought to know from Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he will dismiss senior cabinet ministers like Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Commerce Minister Suresh Prabhu and two junior ministers Jayant Sinha of Civil Aviation Ministry and M.J. Akbar of External Affairs Ministry for allegedly holding the posts of directors in India Foundation.
The party also demanded that the Prime Minister should act against them by initiating an enquiry by the CBI against them for allegedly holding office-of-profit, conflict of interest, and violating FCRA norms.
The attack by the Congress came after The Wire news website published an article on the issue.
