exit from the country in 2016, demanding that finance minister Arun Jaitley resign over what he called was an act of "collusion" with the fugitive liquor baron. I met the Finance Minister before I left...repeated my offer to settle with the banks. So, obviously the comments are referring his meeting with Arun Jaitley.

Former Union finance minister Yashwant Sinha, who recently left the BJP and is now in the Opposition camp, said: "Not only the finance minister, the entire BJP must come clean on its relations with Vijay Mallya". "I happened to meet (Mr) Jaitley in Parliament and told him that I am leaving for London".

Jaitley, in his long post, said that since 'he (Vijay Mallya) was a Rajya Sabha member and he occasionally attended the House, he misused that privilege on one occasion while I was walking walking out the house to go my room'. The finance minister dismissed it as "factually false" and said Vijay Mallya had accosted him in the corridor of parliament.

One can forget about Mallya's talk with Jaitley about the settlement part, this was anyway not acceptable for banks since Mallya was offering much less than what the banks claimed he owed them.


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

Kejriwal's other tweet read, "PM Modi meets Neerav Modi before he flees the country". The London court was hearing the closing arguments in the extradition case against Mallya on Wednesday, as well as review the video of jail cell prepared for him by the Indian authorities.

On being asked why the government and the banks are still on his case despite his settlement offer, Mallya put the ball in the banks' court. Mallya also said he was not "tipped off" by anyone to flee the country.

"Either your passport is impounded or there is an order of a court".


And more importantly, why did the CBI tweak the look-out notice from detention to just inform around the same period effectively letting Mallya escape easily a week before banks moved the Supreme Court and the issue hogged national headlines?

It is known news that Vijay Mallya, is wanted on charges of fraud and money laundering amounting to around Rs. 9,000 crore. Also, if he felt a declared defaulter of bank loans to the tune of thousands of crores was trying to use his privilege as a Rajya Sabha MP to influence a cabinet minister, he ought to have informed the House about it or shared the information with the media.

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.
