  • Vijay Mallya claims he met Finance Minister before leaving India Arun Jaitley rubbishes charge

So, when finance minister gave statements in Parliament on Vijay Mallya issue, he should have mentioned about this meeting with Mallya.

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. "I did not have any formal meetings scheduled with him", Mallya said outside London Westminster Magistrate's Court.

The ruling on whether Indian tycoon Vijay Mallya can be extradited from Britain to India to face fraud charges will be given on December 10, a London judge said on Wednesday, after she heard closing submissions in the case.

He claimed that Rahul Gandhi was on the backfoot in the case of Kingfisher Airlines and its promoter Vijay Mallya as well as the entire Gandhi family travelled on the airline and their travel was upgraded to business class for free. Launching the counter-attack, BJP spokesperson said that they have enough evidence to prove that top Congress leaders have relations with Vijay Mallya.

In his Facebook blog, Jaitley that he had never given Mallya any appointment. "Having being fully briefed about his "bluff offers", without allowing him to proceed with the conversation, I curtly told him 'there was no point talking to me and he must make offers to his bankers'".

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

Jaitley said Mallya "misused" the privilege of being a Rajya Sabha MP to catch him in corridors of Parliament.

You'll also find a couple of notable teams - the two that played in last year's Super Bowl - not mentioned at all. Back in June, Meek Mill and MMG boss Rick Ross invaded an Eagles Super Bowl ring celebration party .

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

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's statement has dealt a massive blow to the BJP-led NDA government that is now battling multiple challenges, including the depreciation of the rupee and rising fuel prices.

Jaitley said he had never given Mallya any appointment to meet him since 2014 and "the question of his having met me does not arise". In his tweet posted on 12 June this year, Swamy had written, "Mallya could not escape from India because of a strong Look Out Notice for him at airports".

"I put nearly Rs 15,000 crore offer on the table of the Karnataka High Court". That was the last time Nirav, who is wanted in the Rs 13,000-crore Punjab National Bank loan fraud, was seen in public.

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. "That is the truth", he told reporters outside a Westminster Magistrate court where he is fighting an extradition case filed by Indian authorities.
