Rahul Gandhi blasts the government for new scheme, calls it ‘Beta Bachao’


The  Prime Minister Narendra Modi committed many a time  that  his government had  zero tolerance  for corruption and  it was  this  promise that brought  the  BJP to power in 2014 elections. Almost all promises made by the party were  forgotten by the  Prime Minister and consequently his popularity base shrunk hugely. The negative steps taken by the government like demonetization and introduction of GST have further cut the grassroot support.

Against this dismal background, the government has now made  up its mind to  defend the  company  run  by  Jay Shah, the son  of Amit Shah, the BJP president. The  Congress  vice president Rahul Gandhi while  campaigning for the party in  Gujarat, said after the ‘Beti  Bachao, Beti  Padhao’ scheme, the BJP  had  now launched new scheme ‘Beta Bacho’ and that the  party was trying very hard to save the son of the party president. Ministers and even Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh refuted the allegation that the profits of the company rose manyfold after the BJP cames to power and after Amit  Shah became party chief.  It is a clear case because the website The Wire presented the documents obtained from the  Registrar of Company but the government adopted an  adamant stand  to support  Jay Shah.

The  Congress  launched a  scathing attack  on  the  government for allowing Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta to defend the case on  behalf of Jay Shah in  a defamation case  filed  by him against the website. The Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said that the law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad did not follow the ‘rajdharma’.
