New Delhi: Fugitive businessman Vijay Mallya on Tuesday said he was happy to see that public sector banks have bailed out Jet Airways, wishing the same was done for his now defunct Kingfisher Airlines. In a series of tweets, he also suggested that banks should take his money to help save Jet Airways.
“Happy to see that PSU Banks have bailed out Jet Airways saving jobs, connectivity and enterprise. Only wish the same was done for Kingfisher.
“BJP spokesman eloquently read out my letters to PM Manmohan Singh and alleged that PSU banks under the UPA Government had wrongly supported Kingfisher Airlines. Media decimated me for writing to the current PM. I wonder what has changed now under the NDA Government,” he tweeted.
He also said that he invested over Rs 4,000 crore into Kingfisher Airlines to save the company and its employees. “Not recognised and instead slammed in every possible way. The same PSU banks let India’s finest airline with the best employees and connectivity fail ruthlessly. Double standards under NDA. “And I repeat once again that I have placed liquid assets before the Hon’ble Karnataka High Court to pay off the PSU banks and all other creditors. Why do the banks not take my money. It will help them to save Jet Airways if nothing else,” he added. (IANS)
