Addressing a press conference, Goyal said that the defamation case will be filed at Ahmedabad where Jay carries out his business. He said that Khandwala had been Shah's stock broker for close to a decade and the loans were from a finance company, which was not just properly routed but also disclosed. "And the loan taken from NDFC has been full paid along with the interest", he added. "Will PM ask the CBI to act against Amit Shah's son?"

Earlier in the day, Goyal informed that Jay Shah, will be filing a criminal defamation suit against news website "The Wire" for alleging that Jay's company posted a turnover of Rs. 80.5 crore in 2015-16.

Soon after Shah led a march to the CPI (M) office, the communist party criticised the "Jan Raksha Yatra" saying it was aimed at diverting public attention from the growing discontent against the Modi government.

Asked where is the criminality, he said "we are talking about crony capitalism".

"Today, we want to ask our Prime Minister what you now think about crony capitalism".

At a press conference, Goyal said the article put out by the publication was "false, baseless, malicious and derogatory" and said the allegations against a commodity-trading firm owned by Jay Shah whose turnover rose by 16,000 times soon after the BJP came to power, as per the website, were "without substance". "When the author was given all answers to her queries by Jay Shah's lawyer, the author disjointed facts".

Goyal said Jay Amit Shah had taken loans either from non-banking financial companies (NBFCs) or Non-funded Credit Facilities from cooperative bank on purely commercial terms strictly in accordance with law. Speaking to themedia, Piyush Goyal said, "Jay Shah carries out fully legitimate and lawful business reflected in account books, income tax returns and all transactions in banks". "Jay Shah has chose to file criminal and civil defamation suit against the author, editors and the owner of news website The Wire for Rs 100 crore for defamation", Goyal said. It also said that the company received a loan of Rs 15.78 crore from Rajesh Khandwala, a relative of Rajya Sabha member Parimal Nathwani, who is also a senior executive at Reliance Industries. He said the bank, and not a union minister, should defend the loan.

Responding to the Opposition's demands for a probe, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal told the media that the title of the report was "mischievous" to defame Amit Shah and the use of figure 16,000 an attempt to sensationalise the issue. "L K Advani had resigned after the Jain Hawala diary episode while its then party president Bangaru Laxman had quit after a corruption expose", Yechury said, asking will it happen now under the Modi government.
