Finance Minister Arun Jaitley rejected Vijay Mallya's claim that he had met the absconding bank fraud accused before he fled the nation in March 2016.

In a series of tweets, Kejriwal asked, "Why did the finance minister hide this information till now?" "Absolutely shocking. PM Modi meets Neerav (sic) Modi before he flees the country". What transpired in these meetings?

"Finance Minister Arun Jaitley first claimed that he never met Vijay Mallya, but Mr. Mallya met him in the corridor and informed that he was going to London". He told, "I left because I had a scheduled meeting in Geneva". So, when finance minister gave statements in Parliament on Vijay Mallya issue, he should have mentioned about this meeting with Mallya.

Jaitley was quick to dismiss any official meeting with Mallya, but has confirmed this unofficial encounter at Parliament.

However, Jaitley rejected the claim, saying Mallya was "factually false".

In a swipe at the government's "sabka saath, sabka vikas" slogan, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said the BJP's sole aim now was bhagode ka saath, lootero ka vikas' (helping absconders and enriching looters). It also seeks to prove there are no "bars to extradition" and that the tycoon is assured a fair trial in India over his now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines' alleged loan default of Rs 9,000 crore.


Further alleging "collusion" between Jaitley and Mallya, the Congress president demanded resignation of the Finance Minister. But, it was nearly a week by then since Mallya left the country.

"I did not even receive the papers he was holding in his hand", Jaitley said.

Vijay Mallya arrives at Westminster Magistrates Court in London, Britain, September 12, 2018. "Both political parties don't like me", he said, while having a cigarette during the lunch break during the hearing for his ongoing extradition case at Westminster Magistrates' Court in London.

The clarification came hours after Jaitley said that he had not granted any formal appointment to Mallya.

"In spite of this, the BJP government allowed him to flee with thousands of crores debt". Had the government moved the court pushing for Mallya's detention, or directed the investigators including CBI to detain him citing the seriousness of the case, or at least if the CBI hadn't changed the nature of look out notice a few months before the escape, Mallya would not have left the country. There are CCTV cameras, we can all see that for proof. "Chowkidaar nahin, Bhagidaar hai (Not a watchman, but a partner)", he tweeted in Hindi.
