Investigate my son, but also probe Jay Shah: Yashwant Sinha

Daijiworld Media Network

New Delhi, Nov 10: Taking a jibe against the central government, senior BJP leader and former Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha said that his son Jayant Sinha should be investigated after his name surfaced in the leaked list of 'Paradise Papers' alongside with BJP chief Amit Shah's son, Jay Shah for allegations of benefiting from crony capitalism.

On Monday, Union Minister for State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha was named in the Paradise Papers, which leaked the offshore investments of prominent and wealthy politicians and corporates across the globe.

Yahswant Sinha in a television interview demanded that the government should probe the politicians whose names have surfaced in Paradise Papers and it should be time-bound, within 15 days to one month. He also said that the government should conduct an independent assessment on Jay Shah who is said to have allegedly benefited from his father’s office.

"My question is when an inquiry against Jayant Sinha, then why not Jay Shah. A probe should be against everyone," said the former Finance Minister.

Meanwhile, Jayant Sinha, who was a former venture capitalist said that the transactions he is linked to were not personal but related to the Omidyar Network, a company that he worked for. He asserted that all the transactions were legal and legitimate.

"Sack Arun Jaitley"

Alleging that Arun Jaitley has miserably failed as Finance Minister, Yashwant Sinha demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should fire him over Goods and Services Tax (GST) 'mess'.

"Jaitley’s mess while bringing in GST has been inflicting one blow after another to the traders throughout the country. Jaitley implemented GST without applying his mind. Instead of tinkering with the GST, it will be better if the Centre sets up a committee under noted economist Vijay Kelkar to look into the various aspects of GST," he advised.

There's a fundamental problem with GST structures and you have to address that, he asserted.

In September when Yashwant Sinha, in an article, accused Arun Jaitley for making a "mess" of the economy and blamed it partly on what he called a hurried launch of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and notes ban, Jayant Sinha had defended the government’s move.

    How dare you to ask for investigation against Chota Bheem Shah ? Don't you know who is his father and what is his capacity to destroy every evidence as he did with Gujarat riot records ? You have no right to question him. They are Monarchs o f India.
