Have proof Rahul used black money, UPA gave Mallya ‘sweet deals’: BJP

13 September 2018

Fugitive businessman and former liquor baron, Vijay Mallya kicked up a storm when he claimed on Wednesday that he had met Union Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley before fleeing to London.

However, in a series of tweets Finance Minister Arjun Jaitley labeled Mallya's claim as "false". Aam Admi party said, obviously PM Modi must also be knowing about Mallya leaving 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. The government should now explain how and why he was allowed to leave and what transpired at those meetings. I said I want to settle with the banks and would he please facilitate these discussions. "I hope the honourable judges will consider it favourably; everybody gets paid off and I guess that's the primary objective", said Mallya, who has been on bail on an extradition warrant since his arrest in April previous year and is fighting extradition to India.

Jeff Schaeffer and Philipp Jenne in Stockholm , Jari Tanner in Helsinki and Vanessa Gera in Warsaw contributed. The Swedish government in 2015 allowed 163,000 migrants into the country with a population of 10 million.

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

Jaitley, however, took to Facebook to dismiss Mallya's claims as being "factually false".

"Sometimes it seems the airline was not owned by Mallya, but by the Gandhi family in proxy", BJP spokesman Sambit Patra said, adding that Rahul Gandhi, who is out on bail in the National Herald case, had no right to question others on corruption. "We need proper disclosures, full inquiries on this", he said.

Cardi B Has Thrown a Shoe During a Fight in the Past
It's so insane to me that people always need to make Onika the bad guy... "I am not a clown, that's clown s-t". Soon after the incident, Cardi took to Instagram , where she claimed she let Nicki "talk big s**t about" her.

Further alleging "collusion" between Jaitley and Mallya, the Congress president demanded resignation of the Finance Minister.

The judge, however, made it clear to the CPS that she did not require any further information in reference to the prison conditions awaiting Mallya in India.

The verdict in the extradition case will be announced on December 10. Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said Mallya's revelation shows that the BJP is running "a travel, tour and immigration agency for looters to settle abroad". He then came to Delhi and met someone who was powerful enough to change the Notice from blocking his departure to just reporting his departure. Indian authorities wouldn't have been in a situation to endlessly wait outside United Kingdom court rooms to get a favourable judgment for Mallya's extradition and even make a presentation to United Kingdom judges about the facilities an conditions of Indian jails. "Chowkidaar nahin, Bhagidaar hai (Not a watchman, but a partner)", he tweeted in Hindi.
