Gandhi had also taken a crack at BJP President Amit Shah's son Jay Shah, calling him the icon of Startup India. A story about Jay Shah on the portal The Wire had set off a political firestorm on Sunday. The story had reported that the revenue of a Jay Shah-owned company (Temple Enterprise Pvt Ltd) had jumped from Rs 50,000 (2014-15) to Rs 80.5 crore (2015-16) in one year after Narendra Modi became prime minister.
Jay Shah has since filed a Rs 100 crore defamation suit against The Wire.
