Mallya issue: Manmohan, Chidambaram rubbish BJP's allegations
LAST UPDATE: Tuesday, 31 Jan 2017 - 7:46:59 AM
Ahead of the Budget Session, BJP alleged Congress has been pushed against the wall as "corrupt hands" of Singh and Chidambram ensured bank loans to Mallya's "sinking" Kingfisher Airlines. The party quoted from purported letters written by businessman Mallya to Singh in which he sought his intervention following which his now defunct company received loans.

Both Singh and Chidambaram insisted that letters from captains of industry were routine and were "marked down" to appropriate authorities and no law of the land was violated. "I think what I have done was done with a full satisfaction of mine that we were not doing anything which was against law of the land," Singh said rubbishing the charges at a press conference jointly addressed by him and Chidambaram at AICC headquarters.

Singh said all Prime Ministers and other Ministries in any government receives representations from various captains of industry. "In normal course... we pass on these to appropriate authorities. It was a normal routine transaction and therefore the letter that is being talked about is nothing but an ordinary piece of letter which any government in my position would have dealt with," he said.

Chidambaram, on his part, said the hundreds of representations received in the government are not dealt by Ministers themselves. "No Minister can deal with each one of these representations. They are marked down to departments and officers concerned, who will then take appropriate follow-up action," he said, adding that there was "absolutely nothing wrong" if somebody seeks some policy changes or forbearance.

"If letter to PMO is marked down to Principal Secretary to PM and Principal Secretary forwards it to department concerned, these are normal," he claimed. Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala posed a set of questions on BJP, asking the ruling party as to who was responsible for allowing the escape of Mallya from India despite the fact that a consortium of banks had moved against him for recovery of over Rs 9,000 crore.

"Was Vijay Mallya tipped off to run away from India by a high ranking official inside the Modi Government?," he asked. Surjewala also asked why did BJP vote for and help him get elected as an MP of Rajya Sabha in June 2010 and if it was true that Vijay Mallya has been Working President of Subramaniam Swamy's Janata Party.

"Why did Modi Government permit 'Diageo plc' which now owns United Breweries, make payment of USD 40 Million as part of agreement dated 25.02.2016 as also receive this money in an offshore account? What action has Modi Government taken against 'Diageo plc' and United Breweries?," the Congress leader asked.

According to CBI, Letters Rogatory (request for legal assistance) have been sent to authorities in British Virgin Islands and Singapore seeking details of use of money lying in Kingfisher's accounts in these tax havens. The agency is awaiting their reply.
IDBI allegedly showed "undue favour" to KFA in the matter of sanction and disbursement of short-term loans of Rs 150 crore in October 2009 and Rs 200 crore in November 2009, and another corporate loan of Rs 750 crore in November 2009.

It was alleged in the charge sheet that a significant portion of the disbursed facility (loan) was diverted by Kingfisher to service their existing debt with other banks, and was also diverted to settle the documentary bills discounted by Bank of Baroda.

Significant amounts were also allegedly remitted out of India on the pretext of payment of lease rental and purchase of aircraft parts, while Rs 3.45 crore were paid into the bank account of Kingfisher in London, said the CBI charge sheet.
