Government not serious about getting Mallya back

Government not serious about getting Mallya back: Congress

New Delhi, June 18 (IANS) The Congress on Saturday asserted that the Narendra Modi government is not serious about getting controversial business tycoon Vijay Mallya back to India.

“It is not surprising. This government is actually trying to go through the motions of a smoke-screen. They are not serious in getting him (Mallya) back. The Indian High Commissioner in England understands that and therefore he does not see a problem in attending that event,” Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari said talking to reporters here.

The Congress reaction came after media reports suggested that Indian High Commissioner in UK, Navtej Sarna, attended a function where Mallya too was present.

The High Commissioner “understands the policy of the government which is actually you create a smoke screen of activity. They are not serious of getting him,” said Tewari.

“If the government is serious about getting him let them make public who travelled in his private plane in last five years,” Tewari added.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Friday in an interview to Times Now said that it was not easy for any Indian government to extradite Mallya from the UK.

“Arun Jaitley is ostensibly doing what he has been asked to do — try and walk on a tight rope and possibly try to subterfuge the action and hide a lot of inaction,” Tewari said, reacting to Jaitley’s statement.

“If they would have been serious they would have never let him go,” Tewari said.

Mallya is wanted in bank loans default and money-laundering cases against him.

  1. I have to admit – Kaangress is right on this issue. If govt was serious, they wouldn’t have let him escape in the first place. This is why India continues to be a third world country! It’s a mindset that will always hold us back from prospering!! Sad!

    • “If govt is serious, they wouldn’t have let him escape in the first place. This is why India continues to be a third world country!…. Sad! – RampaNNA

      Lol! The govt. HAS to have a face and a voice (a representative so to speak) — the kind that one sees hugging “pal” Barack Obama and giving hi-decibel (but miserly-low on content) speeches to the Indian Diaspora out there. And well, the voice is none other than the one that ‘thunders’ across the ether on ‘Monkey Baath’.

      So why does our Yumreeki RampaNNA have a problem in naming the face of the Govt? Or is such naming & shaming left to the morons apprehended at MIA? And nope… I won’t bring in Vijayaaaa Mallyaaaa as his ‘jathaaaaka, kundaaaali, shaaaani, shaaaaakuni vaaaaaastu’ etc don’t exactly align themselves with the non-existent ones of the idiots caught at MIA.

      Good going ya, Rampa.

      Say, do you think that your Subru Swami will fit into the incumbent RBI Gov’s shoes? Or, was it all a ploy by the RSS/BJP combine?

  2. Government has no justifiable legal basis to extradite Mallya from another country. Mallya has covered his tracks really well. Kiss that 9000 crore good bye. It will be written off as bad debt by the banks in the next few years and the government will be forced to capitalise those banks by the same amount.

    Dear tax payer of India, please bend over again. The government is going to extract that money from you soon. In the mean time, continue to watch Bollywood and Cricket. When bad times come, pray to your uncle from the sky, visit temples, retreats, pilgrimages… or whatever people in India are expected to do when problems come.
