New Delhi: Against the claims of farewell businessman Vijay Mallya's meeting with finance minister Arun Jaitley, the Congress again attacked the Narendra Modi government on Thursday and alleged that this government is running a 'travel agency' to escort the fugitives out of the country. After Congress President Rahul Gandhi, the party's main spokesman Randeep Surjewala also targeted the government and questioned if the government would ransack the money launderers, then who would save the country? He said, "It seems that the Modi government is running a travel agency today to take away (fugitives), to fly and to move abroad, and this is the policy."
Surjewala said, "The most interesting thing is that the fugitive are seen with the Prime Minister and Finance Minister for the last time before going out of the country. It seems that a new picture is going on in this country, 'Jab We Met Part -2'. "He asked," When it came to know that Mallya is going to flee from the country, why not arrest him in time? was done? On whose orders did the lookout notice related to Mallya be changed? Why were the finance ministers mantraing with Mallya just before the escape?
The Congress leader asked, "Why did not the banks approach the court before fleeing Mallya and who told the banks to do so? Why did the finance minister notify the agencies when they got information about Mallya's escape? Why did the Modi government allow Mallya to pay a billion rupees under a deal with a foreign company?
Earlier on Thursday, Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Talaash on Mallya's claim said a sharp attack on the Narendra Modi government and alleged that Mallya was successful in escaping from Jaitley's collusion. Rahul alleged that the finance minister and the government are lying in this matter and Jaitley should resign. On the other hand, Jaitley, while rejecting Mallya's claim, said that Mallya had come to him in the corridor of Parliament-building while misusing 'privilege' as a Rajya Sabha member.
