Liquor baron Vijay Mallya, who is on the run from the Indian authorities post his Rs 9,000 scam, has hit back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Currently, the Kingfisher Airlines' owner is facing extradition to India as he is awaiting a final decision from UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid after Westminster magistrate’s court recommended it on December 10. Mallya took to Twitter to take a jibe at Narendra Modi after he referred to his case in Parliament and that he ran away with Rs 9,000 crores from banks and urged that the whole situation is being dealt in a wrong manner.
In a series of tweets addressed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the 63-year old businessman said that the PM referred to him, without naming him, while speaking in the Lok Sabha. Mallya stated that PM Modi should instruct the banks that when he is willing to pay back the money, why aren’t they taking it?
In another tweet, Vijay questioned as to why the banks don’t take his money back as he had offered to settle it before the Hon’ble High Court of Karnataka.
He also slammed people who are misleading the facts as the media reports on the ED claims he had hidden his wealth.
