Jay Amit shah had to face a controversy in past.
Jay Shah had filed two cases against the website named The Wire– one criminal defamation case and the other a civil lawsuit of Rs 100 crore – for an article published in October 2017. The Gujarat High Court had refused to invalidate the defamation complaint, following which the petitioners decided to approach the Supreme Court in July.
The article had alleged that the revenues of his company had grown massively within a year of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party coming to power in 2014. Amit Shah, the national president of the BJP, was not in the Union Cabinet then.
