‘PM has admitted that government has recovered more money than I owe to banks but banks claim otherwise’: Vijay Mallya

New Delhi: Businessman Vijay Mallya, who is wanted in India for defaulting crores in loans to his failed Kingfisher Airlines, took to Twitter again this morning to take a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

He said that PM Modi has given a statement that the recovery of assets was higher than the reported Rs. 9,000 crores he owed.

Earlier this month he had said that the Prime Minister’s statements that recovery of Rs. 14,000 crores worth of his assets has fully justified him in his affirmation of being a “poster boy” for the BJP-led government.

The fugitive liquor baron tweeted: “None other than the Prime Minister of India specifically says in an interview that his Government has recovered more money than I allegedly owe PSU Banks and the same Banks claim otherwise in English Courts. Who does one believe? One or the other is lying.”

Mallya faces extradition to India on fraud and money laundering charges.
