Fake story on assets exposed
One more media hit job against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah bites the dust when facts emerge. Some media houses had published a report saying that Amit Shah’s assets had increased by 300 percent in five years. After knowing the exact reason, many withdrew the story and the Left – Liberal coteries started accusing media houses of withdrawing the false report.
If they had studied the affidavits of Amit Shah and compared 2012 with that of 2017, they would have easily found this.
Now BJP has come out with the exact details of Amit Shah’s affidavit submitted in connection with the Rajya Sabha election. In 2012, when contesting as a Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA), Amit Shah’s total assets along with his wife’s were Rs.10.99 crores. The current affidavit in 2017 to Rajya Sabha showed his total assets along with wife as Rs.34.31 crores. The affidavit mentioned all details, while the one sided reporters, who always tried to hit Amit Shah ignored or did not study the affidavit in detail explaining the reasons behind the increase.
On July 31, Union Minister and former BJP Treasurer Piyush Goyal came out with a detailed press release explaining the wrong reporting by media. In February 2013, Amit Shah’s wife’s mother passed away and his wife inherited her properties worth Rs.18.85 cores through a court probate.
“Thus in 2015 only, his assets grew to 29.84 crores which stood at Rs.34.31 crore in 2007 on account of price escalation,” said the statement issued by Piyush Goyal.
This goes to show the extent to which some people in the media, basically belonging to Left-Liberal and pro-Jihadi ideologies, out of sheer hatred towards Amit Shah, were trying to create a mountain out of a mole hill. If they had studied the affidavits of Amit Shah and compared 2012 with that of 2017, they would have easily found this. Having seen a lot of red, they may be looking at Amit Shah with red filters! But having been caught in a lie, they are now red-faced.
But they may be too proud to print a retraction on this. So dear readers, you red (read!) about this first here!
