Former finance minister and BJP leader Yashwant Sinha said that the BJP has "lost the moral high ground" due to the way it has reacted to the recent story in The Wire on the business dealings of party president Amit Shah's son, Jay Amitbhai Shah.
"Producing senior ministers to defend Amit Shah's son and farming out a top government lawyer to represent Jay Shah in court are moves that clearly indicate serious lapses on the part of BJP", he said in Patna.
Sinha also criticised the way Railway Minister Piyush Goyal called a press conference to clear allegations against Jay Shah. "Looking at all this, therefore, perhaps the high moral ground that we had occupied all these months and years appears to have been lost somehow".
"The government should order an inquiry because too many government departments are involved", said Mr Sinha, backing what the opposition has demanded. "He is a central minister, not a chartered accountant". His statement came in direct reference to the party's decision to send a Union Minister to defend the businessman, who is not even a party of the government.

Brushing off the suggestion, Daisy said: "I love Jamie, Louise and the kids - they've asked for their privacy". She is so much fun and we saw that come alive in Strictly - it was attractive to see her blossom that way'.
Jay Shah has slapped the media outlet with a Rs 100 crores defamation suit over the said report. "The BJP has lost the high moral ground of zero tolerance on corruption", he added.
Company balance sheets and annual reports obtained from the RoC reveal that in the financial years ending March 2013 and 2014, Shah's Temple Enterprise Private Ltd. engaged in a negligible activity and recorded losses of Rs 6,230 and Rs 1,724 respectively.
Earlier in a startling revelation, a company owned by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah's son Jay Shah made more than a fortune after Narendra Modi formed the Central government and Amit Shah became the party president.
