As fugitive businessman Vijay Mallya on Wednesday said he had met Finance Minister Arun Jaitley before leaving the country, the Congress took a dig at him dubbing him as "fiscal mismanagement blog minister".

Screenshots were in circulation of the June 12, 2018, tweet in which he had said: "Mallya could not escape from India because of a strong Look Out Notice for him at airports". Before leaving I met the finance minister and offered to settle (the issue with the banks), Mallya said, without naming the minister. The finance minister dismissed it as "factually false" and said Vijay Mallya had accosted him in the corridor of parliament.

At a press conference minutes later, Rahul Gandhi said one of its leaders had witnessed Arun Jaitley and Vijay Mallya having a discussion in parliament just two days before the fugitive tycoon's flight to the UK. "Having been fully briefed about his earlier "bluff offers", without allowing him to proceed with the conversation, I curtly told him "there was no point talking to me and he must make offers to his bankers". Why, the Congress president asked, didn't the finance minister inform the Central Bureau of Investigation or the Enforcement Directorate? "There was no need to run and the allegations are media created allegations", he said.

He said Mallya's claim is a vindication of the Congress's stand that the government always knew about the fleeing defaulters. Today Mallya spoke to reporters outside London's Westminster Magistrates' Court, where his extradition case is being heard. I even did not receive any paper from him at that time. "Either I will quit politics or he will have to", Punia said.

"I have no comment, you are hearing everything in court", he added on further questions by the reporters. "My conscience is clear and (I) put nearly Rs15,000 crore worth of assets on the table of the Karnataka High Court", he said.

Sinha's remarks came soon after Mallya, facing charges of fraud and money laundering amounting to around Rs 9,000 crore, said in London that he met the finance minister before leaving India a year ago. I feel like a scapegoat.

Mallya, while heading inside the court in connection with his extradition case, said that he is ready for a comprehensive settlement.

During the hearing, Mallya's defence team branded the evidence presented by the Indian government in the case as "utterly unfounded".

"The entire Gandhi family was in fact helping Mallya and Kingfisher Airlines with the sweet deal", Patra said, while showing a bunch of documents related to the loans given by banks to the airline.

The bench of Emma Arbuthnot is likely to take a final call on handing over Mallya to Indian authorities after reviewing the video on Barrack 12 of Arthur Road jail in Mumbai.
