As Jay Shah becomes the Secretary of BCCI, usual suspects target him with old, debunked lies published by Leftist rag The Wire

Referring to the hit-job article of The Wire, Congress trolls went on to claim that due to Jay Shah's magic, a company associated to him saw a profit of 16,000 times in just one year and similarly due to Jay Shah's magic, he went on to become BCCI secretary with zero experience in the game.

In a quick turn of events on Monday, while former captain Sourav Ganguly emerged as a consensus candidate to be BCCI’s new President, Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah got elected unopposed for the post of new secretary and Arun Dhumal will be the new treasurer. Arun Dhumal is the younger brother of MoS Finance and former BCCI president Anurag Thakur.

As reports emerged that Jay Shah has been appointed as the secretary of the sports body, Congress ecosystem sensing an opportunity, jumped on to the scene to attack the BJP. However, in doing so, the members of the Congress ecosystem picked up the false propaganda peddled by the ultra-left wing rag – The Wire.

Referring to the hit-job article of The Wire, Congress trolls went on to claim that due to Jay Shah’s magic, a company associated to him saw a profit of 16,000 times in just one year and similarly due to Jay Shah’s magic, he went on to become BCCI secretary with zero experience in the game. He took a dig at Jay Shah, stating that he was the real Chanakya.

The Congress ecosystem has been referring to an article written by The Wire, which had alleged impropriety in business dealings of Jay Shah. Their article, which was riddled with glaring loopholes and inaccuracy, was decimated by OpIndia. Subsequently, The Wire had selectively altered its story, but the shaky ground on which the story stood remained as it was.

In response to the shoddy story, Jay Shah had slapped ‘The Wire’ with a Rs 100 crore defamation case against them in a Gujarat court. Subsequently, the Gujarat High Court had issued a gag order on The Wire, preventing it from publishing anything on the matter. The High Court had observed that Jay Shah has a prima facie case against the publication.

The Wire then had approached the Supreme Court to dismiss the defamation against them. The apex court had stayed the defamation proceedings in the trial court while it heard the plea. But during a hearing on the plea at the Supreme Court, the publication decided to change track and requested to withdraw the petition, saying they will face the trial in the criminal defamation case.

In a huge embarrassment to The Wire, The Supreme Court had pulled up The Wire and ‘journalist’ Rohini Singh for being in a hurry to publish their story on Jay Shah and said that it was ‘nothing short of yellow journalism’. The Supreme Court bench had also made some scathing comments against The Wire and had questioned their intention by asking, “What is this kind of journalism that has developed in our country?”

Meanwhile, in the past, Senior Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia had been the chairperson of the Madhya Pradesh Cricket academy. He still continues to wield enormous control on the MPCA as it was evident last week after the faction supported by him swept the association elections.

Vaibhav Gehlot, son of Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, is the new President of the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA). Vaibhav Gehlot, who suffered a humiliating defeat from Rajasthan’s Jodhpur Lok Sabha constituency on Congress ticket against the BJP’s Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, stepped in to cricket administration recently despite having no experience in cricket.
