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.

The Congress leader was referring to Mumbai-based Shirdi Industries, of which Piyush Goyal was the Chairman between 2008 and 2010. The Wire report alleged that the company defaulted on loans totalling Rs 650 crore, which were raised during Goyal's tenure.

Rahul Gandhi is campaigning in Karnataka for the 12 May Assembly elections.
