Congress slams Jaitley after Mallya says he met him

Adjust Comment Print

Mallya told media outside of court that he had met Indian Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to settle matters before he left the country. "He (Mallya) was given a free passage out of the country by the Finance Minister", said Rahul. That is the truth.' However, he did not mention that it was Arun Jaitley.

Vijay Mallya, who had earlier claimed of meeting the Finance Minister and offering a settlement deal to him, clarified his statement and said, "I did not have any formal meeting scheduled with him". "I happened to meet (Mr) Jaitley in Parliament and told him that I am leaving for London". Jaitley denied a settlement had been reached in a Facebook post, saying he had declined to hold an audience with Mallya by telling him there was "no point talking to me".

At a press conference minutes later, Rahul Gandhi said one of its leaders had witnessed Arun Jaitley and Vijay Mallya having a discussion in parliament just two days before the fugitive tycoon's flight to the UK.

Shaw's head crashed off the Spaniard's hip and then bounced off the turf, causing obvious concern around the stadium. We both have the same objective and before judging someone I like to meet them for myself in person.

"I did not even receive the papers he was holding in his hand", Jaitley said.

However, reacting to this, Jaitley said Jaitley said he had never given Mallya any appointment to meet him since 2014 and "the question of his having met me does not arise".

She dismissed the CPS argument that there was "stark disjoint between what Mallya knew and what the banks knew" and also repeatedly accused the Indian authorities of leaving documents "out of the bundle" that prove that "KFA was the victim of the economic climate" and not any deliberate fault. SBI along with other lenders also approached the Karnataka High Court appealing for Mallya's arrest and impoundment of his passport.

British Airways said the thieves did not get a hold of anyone's travel or passport information. The airline said it would manage any claims on an individual basis.

Mallya, an alleged financial offender, is facing charges of bank fraud and money laundering in India, amounting to the tune of Rs 9,000 crore. "The banks had filed objections to my settlement letters", Mallya said outside the Westminster Magistrates' Court where he had come for a hearing in his extradition case.

Mark Summers, the lawyer acting for the Indian government, said it was not their case that Mallya had taken out the loans intending that the airline should fail, but his intention was if it did, he would not have to repay them.

Jaitley probably owes another clarification on why he gave a major miss to Mallya's clue on the great escape to United Kingdom, the dream safe haven for a number of fraudsters. Had the government moved the court pushing for Mallya's detention, or directed the investigators including CBI to detain him citing the seriousness of the case, or at least if the CBI hadn't changed the nature of look out notice a few months before the escape, Mallya would not have left the country.
