Vora is the managing director of AJL. The AJL is controlled by senior Congress leaders. It also includes members of the Gandhi family. The National Herald newspaper operates this group. The National Herald newspaper was founded by Jawaharlal Nehru in 1938. It has since been considered the mouthpiece of the Congress.
The first newspaper was owned by AJL. However, after independence, in 1956, AJL was established as an unprofessional company. In 2008, all its publications were suspended and the company incurred a debt of Rs 90 crore. After this, the Congress leadership created a new unprofessional company named ‘Young Indian Private Limited’. It stars Motilal Vora, Suman Dubey, Oscar Fernandes and Sam Pitroda as directors along with Sonia and Rahul Gandhi.
