The Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party lapped up a media report which said the turnover of a company owned by BJP President Amit Shah’s son increased 16,000 times over in the year following the election of Narendra Modi as prime minister and the elevation of Shah to the post of party president. The Congress sought answers from Prime Minister and the BJP president, and demanded a probe by the ED and the CBI.

Addressing a press conference at the AICC headquarters, senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal said it seems the fortunes of some people have changed after the change of power. He said filings with the Registrar of Companies (RoC) have revealed that the company owned by Shah’s son Jay started making profits after 2014. The story was reported by The Wire today.

Black money cannot be glibly wished away

How do we get rid of the black economy? That is no secret. Taxation laws and systems in India are as stringent as anywhere else in the world by Sanjeev Nanda

I remember standing for hours in the queue to withdraw my own cash, and then being told that I would not even get a tenth of what I had been promised. I remember coming away with dignity, saying that my sacrifice was for the greater long-term good of the nation.

I did need the money — bills to be paid, provisions to be bought, just some loose cash for emergencies, but I did not complain. I knew money was in short supply, notes were being printed and would soon be available to all.

I was happy that there was news of so many bigwigs getting caught with old and new notes. Many millions of rupees in one stroke were being recovered — and the government had promised to put this into the bank accounts of the poor. It felt good that the fat cats were finally being brought to book. Though how they got so many new notes despite not standing in queues baffled me.
