Vijay Mallya sensational comments: Met Arun Jaitley before leaving India

Arun Jaitley was the Finance Minister in 2016 when Mallya left India

Mallya, who left India on March 2, 2016, also claimed that he was disliked by both the major parties in India - the BJP and Congress.

As he headed inside the court, Mallya told reporters that he had offered a "comprehensive" settlement. He added the meeting appeared to be of formal nature and lasted 15-20 minutes.

Mallya, who faces charges of defrauding banks to the tune of Rs 9,000 crore, said he did not file any clemency plea in the Karnataka High Court where he was ready to settle all dues.

Gandhi wondered that when the "absconder" had informed the finance minister about leaving the country, why did he not notify it to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) or Enforcement Directorate (ED). "Since 2014, I have never given him any appointment to meet me and the question of his having met me does not arise. Arun Jaitley should step down as Finance Minister while this probe is underway", the Congress chief tweeted. However, Jaitley rejected the claim, saying Mallya was "factually false".

Mallya claimed he met the FM before leaving the country and gave the offer to settle with banks. There are CCTV cameras.

In an interview to news channel NDTV, former Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi said it is a "big coincidence" that Mallya left India on the day a consortium of banks moved to recover debts, and that it was possible that "someone could have tipped-off Mallya".

They have to protect their asset but privately they might be doing a deal because they want to get their £90m back. Pogba spent the four years between his two spells at United with Juve, where he was a teammate of Dybala's.

He claimed that the Modi government had never extended any loans to Mallya or helped him in the recovery process, and alleged that "the (Gandhi) family and the (Congress) party that wasted people's money is now trying to cover up its sins".

Goyal said Mallya was a criminal, had no credibility as he was under the "glare of law" and his words could not be taken seriously. Patra said that UPA had given Kingfisher Airlines a "sweet deal" to keep it afloat. "He (Mallya) was given a free passage out of the country by the Finance Minister", said Rahul.

"The entire Gandhi family was in fact helping Mallya and Kingfisher Airlines with the sweet deal", Patra said, while showing a bunch of documents related to the loans given by banks to the airline.

"On August 18, 2010, a company-specific letter was sent to RBI (Reserve Bank of India) and the issue was resolved on August 27". Gandhi asked. He said this can only be done by the "the authority that controls CBI", and Jaitley should come clean whether he got it changed, or was "ordered from above" to get the notice changed.

Earlier in January, Swamy had praised Manmohan Singh's tenure as the finance minister and denounced the practise of handing over the finance portfolio to lawyers. He fled from India in March 2016 and has been living in the United Kingdom ever since.
