Rajya Sabha accepts Mallya's resigtion
New Delhi, May 4: The Rajya Sabha on Wednesday accepted the resigtion of the beleaguered liquor baron Vijay Mallya, who is accused of defaulting on a Rs.9,000-crore loan he had taken from Indian banks. Deputy Chairman P.J. Kurien said Hamid Ansari, who chairs the house, accepted the resigtion Mallya had sent on Tuesday.
“Rajya Sabha accepts resigtion of Vijay Mallya with effect from May 4,” Kurien announced. The parliament term of Mallya, who is believed to have taken refuge in the United Kingdom, was to end later this month. (IANS)
