Rajnath Singh backs Amit Shah’s son, says allegations are baseless

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said that the allegations made against Amit Shah’s son are baseless and rejected demands for probe into the alleged extraordinary spike in the turnover of a company owned by BJP President Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah after NDA came to power.

“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 told reporters here after inaugurating the National Investigation Agency headquarters.
