While demanding Arun Jaitley’s resignation for his collusion with a criminal, the Congress president said that it is possible that Jaitley took orders from PM Narendra Modi for allowing thief Mallya to abscond from the country.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi said today that Finance Minister Arun Jaitley – whose main responsibility is blogging these days – allowed criminal Vijay Mallya to 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.

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.

As the Indian economy is in the doldrums, Jaitley has hardly any work in the finance ministry. To kill his time, he keeps writing blogs on useless issues. People even call him “blogging minister.”

While demanding Arun Jaitley’s resignation for his collusion with a criminal, the Congress president said that it is possible that Jaitley took orders from PM Narendra Modi for allowing thief Mallya to abscond from the country.

“Jaitley should have informed the police even if it was a brief meeting with Mallya,” Rahul Gandhi stated, adding that there is a collusion and an underhand deal has taken place between the Modi government and Mallya.
