New Delhi, May 4 (IANS) Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah on Saturday pushed back Congress chief Rahul Gandhi's attacks on the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi with a telling tweet: "Midas Touch, no deal is too much!

 "When he has a say, his business partners make hay. Doesn't matter if India suffers on the way! #StealLikeRaga." 

The reference was to a media expose on how his former business partner at Backops Limited in the UK -- the same company that in its documents for incorporation had said that Rahul Gandhi was a British citizen -- had got offset defence contracts during UPA rule. 

The former partner, Ulrik Mcknight, who was also co-owner at BackOps, acquired defence assets when the UPA was in power at the centre. The media story claimed that Rahul Gandhi had a 65 per cent stake in Backops between 2003 and 2009, when it was wound up.
