Rahul Gandhi alleges Vijay Mallya-Arun Jaitley collusion, wants FM to resign

14 September 2018

"There are documents that show how the Reserve Bank of India and the United Progressive Alliance under Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh had given "sweet deals" to Kingfisher Airlines", Patra said, referring to the airline that was owned by the liquor baron. Rahul said it was a serious matter that the finance minister, who was supposed to take action against economic offenders, did not inform the CBI, the ED or the police after the absconder told him about his planned escape.

Questioning the denial of Jaitley and Union government, Modi said that many people know Jaitley met Mallya and now the denial doesn't suit him. However, now speaking in Jaitley's defence, Nirmala Sitharaman added that Vijay Mallya's brief conversation with Jaitley in a corridor of Parliament was not of any merit.

He said Mallya, while walking alongside, "uttered a sentence that "I am making an offer of settlement".

"I met the finance minster to settle matters before I left". Mallya is wanted in India for allegedly defaulting on bank loans to the tune of Rs 9,000 crore.

Sweden faces political deadlock after far-right gains
Both his left-leaning bloc and the centre-right bloc led by The Moderates have said they will not ally with the Social Democrats. While the result is a boost for the Sweden Democrats, the party fell short of pre-election predictions.

Mallya added that he had made a "comprehensive settlement" offer before the Karnataka High Court that will help in paying off all his dues.

Jaitley in a post on Facebook on Wednesday evening wrote: "The statement is factually false in as much as it does not reflect truth". He was of the opinion that Jaitley met Mallya a day before he left the country and this fact is "completely true".

While the banks missed out on stopping Mallya from leaving the country, the SBI-led consortium of 17 banks finally filed a petition in the Supreme Court on March 5.

"On 3 March, we heard from the media that he (Mallya) fled the country on 2 March". "It was agreed that they would meet Monday morning to get an order from the Supreme Court restraining Mallya from leaving the country. I am sorry to say that I can not therefore respond to your query".

At the previous hearing in July, Judge Arbuthnot had asked the Indian authorities to submit a "step by step video" of Barrack 12 of Arthur Road Jail for "the avoidance of doubt" over the availability of natural light in the cell where the businessman is expected to be detained pre-trial, during trial and in the event he is convicted by the Indian courts.

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.

"Rahul Gandhi has gone on back foot over Kingfisher Airlines", ANI quoted Patra as saying.
