New Delhi, April 3 (IANS) Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday took a dig at the ruling BJP after a news report on a loan defaulter company allegedly associated with Railway Minister Piyush Goyal.

Attaching a report by The Wire news portal, Gandhi said in a tweet that the Bharatiya Janata Party had come out with another “magic” this time in the form of Shirdi Industries after the controversies surrounding BJP President Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval’s son Shaurya Doval and absconding diamantaire Nirav Modi.

“Shah-zada ke dilchasp kisse, Shaurya-gatha aur Chhote Modi ke bade kaarname ke baad BJP prastut karti hai – Shirdi ka chamatkar (After interesting stories of Shah’s son, tale of Shaurya and big deeds of junior Modi, BJP now presents the magic of Shirdi),” Gandhi said in the tweet.
