The Congress on Thursday raised Vijay Mallaya issue in Parliament. The party attacked the Narendra Modi government and said it helped Mallaya leave the country for abroad. Earlier on Thursday, the Congress gave adjournment motion notice in Lok Sabha over Vijay Mallya issue. The liquor baron is facing legal proceedings for allegedly defaulting loans of over Rs 9,000 crores from various banks. The government had on Wednesday informed the Supreme Court that he had left the country a week back.
Vijay Mallya is not a needle that he couldn't be caught. He can be seen for 1 km away. I accuse this Govt - why was Vijay Mallya not arrested, why was his passport not seized?, said Ghulam Nabi Azad in Rajya Sabha.
CBI is looking into the matter. Vijay Mallya was given banking facility for the 1st time in 2004 even when account wasnt in order. His several assets have been attached, banks will recover every penny from Mallya, says Arun Jaitley in Rajya Sabha.
Banks did not file case till 5th March, when AG told that Vijay Mallya left the nation. The question is not about who gave loans to Mallya, the question is why was he allowed to leave India, said Jairam Ramesh in Rajya Sabha.
