In an ironical twist to the Vijay Mallya case, the liquor baron who is currently being stared at by a fugitive economic offender tag, has retweeted Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s tweet, attacking government on black money.
On Friday, Rahul Gandhi took a jibe at PM Modi and said that after the revelation by Swiss National Bank’s data, Modi will say, “50% jump in Swiss Bank deposits by Indians, is "WHITE" money. No "BLACK" in Swiss Banks!”
Meanwhile, PMLA Special court has summoned Vijay Mallya and others on August 27, taking cognisance of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) plea to bring back Mallya under the new Economic Offender's Bill. As per the ED application, Mallya owes banks around Rs 9,990 crore, as of May 2018.
If Mallya does not appear before the designated court within the given time, he will be declared as a 'fugitive' and ED will move to confiscate his assets worth Rs 12,500 crore, the court stated.
The latest development in the case comes after Vijay Mallya broke his silence and explained his position on the charges against him in an official statement to the media. Mallya had also claimed that all the charges against him are politically-motivated and he had written about the same to the Prime Minister and Union Munister Arun Jaitley
