Arvind Kejriwal calls Mallya's claims on meeting Jaitley 'absolutely shocking'

Arvind Kejriwal calls Mallya's claims on meeting Jaitley 'absolutely shocking'

In 2016, Arun Jaitley had said that there is a legal process to stop somebody from going overseas.

Attacking Rahul Gandhi at a press meet, BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra, showing a purported confessional statement of a hawala trader, alleged that the Congress chief had links with a shell company. Manmohan Singh helped Kingfisher Airlines. "In this anticipation, he (Mallya) left earlier", Jaitley had said, adding that "it would have been better had banks started the process earlier". Who used to be his guests overseas?

Meanwhile, his colleague RS Prasad wondered if Mallya and Rahul Gandhi were "working in tandem".

Mallya, who left India on March 2, 2016, also claimed that he was disliked by both the major parties in India - the BJP and Congress.

"Since 2014, I have never given him any appointment to meet me and the question of his having met me does not arise", Finance Minister Jaitley said in a Facebook post.

Hours later, though, Mallya clarified his statement, saying he had not met the finance minister "formally" but had merely run into him in Parliament.

Mallya told media outside of court that he had met Indian Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to settle matters before he left the country.

The Congress today asked why the Centre didn't arrest Vijay Mallya and confiscate his passport when it came to know he was fleeing the country.

"Rahul Gandhi should answer what were the relations between his family and Mallya", Mr. Goyal said, adding that the now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines was given loans bypassing all norms, laws and regulations.

"Everybody was complacent and everybody was aware".

"Everybody was complacent and everybody was aware, whether it was a casual meeting or a structured meeting".

The CBI circular, which asked the Bureau of Immigration to detain Mallya should he attempt to exit the country, had been issued on October 16, 2015.

After the CBI changed the lookout notice, the Bureau of Immigration did not make any attempt to stop him from travelling overseas, and every time he did, the agency was duly informed about it.

"The appointment was not done in corridor but in Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's office". They hatched a plot to loot hundreds of thousands of Crores. "PM and FM must respond on this", Yadav said in a tweet.

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

Mallya, 62, is fighting numerous lawsuits in the United Kingdom and back home over fraud and money-laundering allegations as well as an extradition to India.

Screenshots were in circulation of the June 12, 2018, tweet in which he had said: "Mallya could not escape from India because of a strong Look Out Notice for him at airports".

Mallya's lawyer told Westminster Magistrates Court in London, "IDBI bank officials were well aware of losses at Kingfisher".

The extradition trial, which opened at the London court on 4 December a year ago, is aimed at laying out a prima facie case of fraud against Mallya. The judge has set December 10 as the next date, which is when a verdict is expected. The Congress President went on to demand Jaitley's resignation.

"In spite of this, the BJP government allowed him to flee with thousands of crores debt". There are CCTV cameras, we can all see that for proof. The party said the Modi government was running a "fleece", "fly" and "settle abroad" travel agency.
