Why is Modi not ordering probe into Mallya case: Congress


New Delhi, Sep 14 (IANS): Accusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi of maintaining a "conspiratorial silence" on Vijay Mallya, the Congress on Friday asked why he was not ordering an "independent probe" into the fugitive businessman's meeting with Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

Demanding the sacking of Jaitley, the party said that "despite startling revelations about a meeting between Mallya and Jaitley on March 1, 2016, both Modi and Jaitley have maintained a "conspiratorial silence".

"Is this silence an admission of guilt by Modi and Jaitley?" asked Congress Spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala.

"Skeletons are tumbling out of the Modi government's cupboard, unravelling a sinister conspiracy and collusion of government agencies, including the CBI, ED, SFIO and banks in permitting Mallya to escape the clutches of law.

"Jaitley and the consortium of banks led by the SBI and CBI/SFIO need to answer important issues," he added.

The Congress leader said that the consortium of banks had met Supreme Court senior advocate Dushyant Dave on February 28, 2016, for advice on the Mallya case. Dave has gone on record (on Thursday) that he advised the SBI management to move the Supreme Court the next day and get Mallya's passport confiscated. The SBI management and other banks never returned the next day for action against Mallya or for blocking his escape, said Surjewala.

"Who in the Modi government told the SBI and other banks to not move the Supreme Court on February 29, 2016, to block the escape of Mallya?" he asked.

"Why did the banks wait till March 5, 2016 to move the Supreme Court when Mallya had already escaped on March 2. Does it not prove a sinister conspiracy to help Mallya?"

"Mukul Rohatgi, the then Attorney General and close friend of Jaitley, has also made a startling revelation that Mallya could have been possibly tipped off and, hence, ran away."

"After this statement, on what basis can any agency refuse to initiate investigation into the great government-assisted escape of Mallya?" the Congress leader added.

He questioned who was directing the banks not to lodge an FIR against Mallya or not provide the full facts of loan defaults and diversion of funds to investigating agencies.

"If the Prime Minister does not act, it will be proved that the watchman is not only a partner, but is also guilty," Surjewala added.

    SB, M'lore, just log on to : https://finapp.co.in/arun-jaitley-net-worth/
    and you'll know Jaitley's networth. Even if it's 110 crores as you claim (May be he too knows Jay Shah's magic of multiplication) certainly 35 crores won't be 'trash' to him.

    Most popular offer is let him resign if he is The man and let Modi sack him if he has 56" chest till his name is cleared and allegations are disapproved. There is no more daring offer than this.

    The Chowkidar remains silent on all issues. His credibiity and that of the Govt is at stake with the above statement of facts. With skeletons tumling out of the modi sarkar closet, high time Modi Ji acts before it is too late.

    I am sure Ram Gopal Verma would be delighted to make a Block Buster movie on this Great Escape.

    Because ordering probe into Mallya case is Anti National which will make Hindustan Tukde Tukde. The copy of 'Hindustan Tukde Tukde ' lyrics are written in Nagpur HQ and sung by RSS at JNU.

    Even if he orders a probe, he'll make sure that 'clean chits' for the dear and near ones will be kept ready before the probe kicks off.

    Mallya was Rajya Sabha BJP nominated MP every one knows. So it's normal to meet the fraud gang before leaving the country.

    similarly Sushma Swaraj helped Lalit Modi to escape from India... !

    Lalit modi was not allowed to travel in Congress government ... lalit modi is allowed to travel by shushma swaraj and modi themselves 6 months after BJP took power...... as per their direction on health grounds for treatment...and shushma herself told him not to come back.. .. that's why modi only politising mallya and not lalit modi..

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lalit_Modi
    Whole India knows except few Dongis when Lalit Modi left India.

    kuch bhi????? Dude Lalit Modi left India in 2010. You can confirm this with his best friend and wife murderer Sashi Tharoor. His passport was also revoked by UPA later . This is why he was asking Sushmas help to visit London from his Congress sponsored hideout to visit his ailing wife . I guess you were one of those protesters who rallied for so called Rafael scam on behalf of Congress but when media asked question doesn't even know whats the scam about. Justvlikw how tiu accused sushma of helping lalit Modi tonoeavr india. Only believing in what masters say. Grow up buddy.

    35 crores is trash for Jaitley? Well, as per his declaration his networth as of 2018 is 28.8 crores. But then which BJP leader is honest about his declaration? May be you are right, Jossey might've missed a few zeroes in that number.

    28 crores?????. This is why we say education is important, otherwise people will vote Congress. Boss, just make an attempt to Google. The first news it comes in 2014 he declared assets of about 110 crores. How come it reduced to 28 in 2018 ? And for which election did he declare in 2018 ? . Then it seems he is most honest now. Or you think the remaining 82 crews are all demonotised notes which he forgot to deposit ? ...... frustration seems to have taken over dongis. Quoting figures and scams from the air.
