While Arun Jaitley claims that Mallya uttered only a few words in his meeting with him, Rahul Gandhi says Jaitley is lying.

Rahul Gandhi said that CBI Jt. Director, A K Sharma, weakened Mallya’s “Look Out” notice, allowing him to escape. He added that Sharma is a Gujarat cadre officer who is close to PM Modi and the same officer was in-charge of Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi’s escape plans.
A couple of days ago, the Congress president had said that Finance Minister Arun Jaitley allowed criminal Vijay Mallya run away from the country.
In a press conference, the Congress president said that another Congress leader and Rajya Sabha MP P. L. Punia had seen Jaitley’s meeting happening with Mallya in the Central Hall of parliament.
Punia asserted in the press conference that the meeting between Jaitley and Mallya took place on March 1, 2016 for about 20 minutes just a couple of days before Mallya left India for UK without paying Rs. 9,000 crore (approximately $1.3 billion) unpaid loans. He added that meeting is also recorded in the CCTV of parliament.
CBI Jt. Director, A K Sharma, weakened Mallya’s “Look Out” notice, allowing Mallya to escape.
Mr Sharma, a Gujarat cadre officer, is the PM’s blue-eyed-boy in the CBI.
The same officer was in charge of Nirav Modi & Mehul Choksi’s escape plans. Ooops…

While Jaitley claims that Mallya uttered only a few words in his meeting with him, Rahul Gandhi says Jaitley is lying. “He (Jaitley) writes long blogs on every thing, but he did not write a blog about his meeting with the absconder,” Rahul Gandhi said.
