The RSS on Thurs­day clar­i­fied its stand on the Jay Shah con­tro­versy with se­nior func­tionary Dat­ta­treya Hos­a­bale say­ing the al­le­ga­tions can be probed if there was prima fa­cie ev­i­dence. He said those who lev­elled al­le­ga­tions against Jay Shah, son of BJP chief Amit Shah, must prove them.

On Thurs­day the RSS clar­i­fied its stand on the Jay Shah con­tro­versy, with se­nior func­tionary Dat­ta­treya Hos­a­bale say­ing that the case against BJP chief Amit Shah’s son could be probed if there was prima fa­cie ev­i­dence. His state­ment came as fresh am­mu­ni­tion for Op­po­si­tion can­nons to cor­ner the BJP.

Hos­a­bale was re­spond­ing to queries on day one of the sig­nif­i­cant, though rou­tine, Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Man­dal (ABKM) meet­ing un­der­way in Bhopal.

“Nec­es­sary in­quiry should be done and ac­tion can be taken ac­cord­ingly,” the RSS func­tionary told re­porters, re­ply­ing to ques­tions re­gard­ing al­le­ga­tions of of huge spike in the turnover of a com­pany owned by Jay Shah.

“Those mak­ing the al­le­ga­tions should prove them first,” the joint gen­eral sec­re­tary of the Sangh said.

Mean­while, the ABKM has made a few de­par­tures from its past tra­di­tion. While the man­date of the ABKM meet is to re­view the achieve­ments and the ac­tiv­i­ties of the Sangh and look into ways of ex­pand­ing the foot­print of the or­gan­i­sa­tion fur­ther, the ABKM would also be dis­cussing the broad con­tours of its pol­icy for the next three years.

“In the ABKM, not just the ex­pan­sion and fur­ther strength­en­ing of the on,go­ing works will be dis­cussed, but also brain­storm­ing on var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties of the Sangh will be done,” All In­dia Pub­lic­ity head of RSS, Man­mo­han Vaidya said.

Nec­es­sary in­quiry should be done and ac­tion can be taken ac­cord­ingly.
