Congress slams Jaitley after Mallya says he met him

  • Arun Jaitley was the Finance Minister in 2016 when Mallya left India

On Wednesday, 12th September, Mallya reached the London's Westminster Magistrates court where it has been made a decision to announce the verdict for fugitive liquor baron Vijay Mallya's extradition case on the 10th of December.

Another Congress leader, Anand Sharma, questioned that the government had information on Mallya, but the finance minister didn't mention this in this speech in the Parliament.

"PM Modi meets Neerav Modi before he flees the country".

A United Kingdom court on Wednesday fixed December 10 as the date to deliver its verdict on whether beleaguered liquor baron Vijay Mallya can be extradited to India to face charges of fraud and money laundering amounting to around Rs 9,000 crores. What transpired in these meetings?

Earlier Mallya had said that he met Jaitley and repeated his offer to settle the loans.

Congress lawmaker P L Punia, who also addressed the press conference, said: "I have clearly stated about this (Vijay Mallya meeting Arun Jaitley) in each of my interview with media".

Jaitley has vehemently denied the charge, saying he never gave Mallya any appointment.

Now the question will be asked as to why Jaitley did not disclose his the content of his conversation with Mallya before even if this had taken place inside the parliament premises.

Soon after Jaitley's rebuttal, Mallya appeared to tone down the seriousness of his claim, saying it was not a "formal meeting" and he only "happened to meet" the minister, when he told him he was going to London. This provided the opposition some fodder to target Jaitley and the Congress said that the revelations were an embarrassment to the government.

"The entire Gandhi family was in fact helping Mallya and Kingfisher Airlines with the sweet deal", Patra said, while showing a bunch of documents related to the loans given by banks to the airline. "There was no need to run and the allegations are media created allegations", he said.

"I did not even receive the papers he was holding in his hand", Jaitley said. The judge has set December 10 as the next date, which is when a verdict is expected. "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.

The Congress also said on its official Twitter handle that Mallya met Jaitley "several times" before escaping the country to discuss a settlement plan. There are CCTV cameras, we can all see that for proof.

"Vijay Mallya left India with the country's money after a farewell from Arun Jaitley".
