Vijay Mallya Again Offers to Settle his Bank Dues
In a series of a number of tweets posted on Thursday, the runaway businessman Vijay Mallya emphasized on resolving out from his bank dues. Mallya’s offer to settle dues came in response to PM Narendra Modi’s speech during the Lok Sabha meeting on Wednesday.
The Prime Minister’s last speech in the Indian Parliament witnessed the attention of many.” He is an articulate speaker who knows very well how to express the right kind of emotions on a particular piece of information. He mentioned Mallya to someone who “ran away” with 9,000 crores. The news witnessed the attention of many media persons and journalists and reached Mallya’s ears that prompted him to think that this was definitely said in relation to him. In his tweet, he even mentioned that “I can only infer that reference is to me,”
With a sense of respect he mentioned Narendra Modi as a fluent speaker and said “Following on from my earlier tweet, I respectfully ask why the PM is no instructing his banks to take the money I have put on the table so he can at least claim credit for full recovery of Public funds lent to Kingfisher”, he said in his another tweet.
I am pleased, to say that the media reports on the Enforcement Directorate claim that I hid my wealth! If there was hidden wealth how could I put approximately Rs 14,000 crores valued assets openly in front of the court. Shameful misleading of public opinion but unsurprising”, Mallya said in his another tweet.
Mallya last month was claimed as the first runaway businessman under the Fugitive Economic Offenders Act, which came into action in August 2018.
He left the country on the 2nd of March, 2016. A London court ordered his banishment on 10 December 2018. Mallya’s banishment had been legally approved by the secretary of UK, said the British Government on the past Monday, in a major blow to the liquor baron boosting India’s continuous efforts to bring back the fugitive businessman.
Mallya said that he would take certain steps to file an appeal against his banishment.
The 62-year old former Kingfisher Airlines King who has been on bail in the UK on an extradition warrant since his arrest in the month of April during the last year is fighting extradition to India on charges of money laundering and fraud amounting to Rs 9,000 crore. Now he is claiming that he is ready to resolve all of his bank and money related issues as early as possible.
