NEW DELHI: The absconding liquor baron Vijay Mallya yet again slams Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led Modi government for saying that he ran away from the country while ignoring the fact that he have been a UK resident since 1992.
In a series of tweet on Sunday, March 31, Mallya slammed the Modi-led NDA government saying, “Fact that I have been a UK resident since 1992 ignored. Suits the BJP to say I ran away.”
He tweeted, “Saw PM Modi’s interview in which he takes my name and says that even though I owe Rs 9,000 crore to banks, his government has attached my assets worth Rs 14,000 crore.” “So, the highest authority has confirmed full recovery. Why do BJP spokesmen continue their rhetoric?” Mallya tweeted.
“I humbly submit that my assertion that I am a poster boy is fully vindicated by the PM’s own statement about me (by name)that his Govt has recovered more than what I allegedly owe the Banks,” said Mallya.
Taking to Twitter on Sunday, March 31, Mallya slammed the Modi government saying, “Fact that I have been a UK resident since 1992 ignored. Suits the BJP to say I ran away.”
Mallya left India in 2016 owing more than Rs 9,000 crore after defaulting on loan payments to a state-owned bank and allegedly misusing the funds.
Mallya was once known as the “King of Good Times” but dropped off India’s most wealthy list in 2014, engulfed by Kingfisher Airlines’ massive debts.
