Currently in London and battling hard to avoid extradition to India, the troubled liquor baron  Vijay Mallya claimed in his series of tweets that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement in a recent interview confirming the recovery of Rs 14,000 crores worth of his assets has fully vindicated him in his assertion of being a “poster boy” for the BJP-led government.

The 62-year-old asserted that by Modi’s own assertion the recovery of assets was higher than the alleged Rs 9,000 crores he faces extradition to India on fraud and money laundering charges.

“I humbly submit that my assertion that I am a poster boy is fully vindicated by the PM’s own statement about me (by name) that his Govt has recovered more than what I allegedly owe the banks,” Mallya said in his latest Twitter outburst.”

“Fact that I have been a UK resident since 1992 ignored. Suits the BJP to say I ran away,” he notes.

In a recent interview in which Prime Minister Modi said that recovering an amount more than what Mallya defrauded was a big win for India.

“You must’ve seen in the case of Vijay Mallya. He owed banks Rs 9,000 crores but the government has confiscated his properties worth Rs 14,000 crore from across the world. Now, he is in trouble because we are taking double the amount,” Modi had said.

In reference to the comments, Mallya noted: “Saw PM Modi’s interview in which he takes my name and says that even though I owe Rs 9,000 crores to Banks, his Govt has attached my assets worth Rs 14,000 crores. So the highest authority has confirmed full recovery. Why do BJP spokesmen continue their rhetoric?”
