While there were many renowned persons in attendance at the highly-anticipated match, it was a photo of Mallya in the VIP stand at Edgbaston stadium that was widely reported by both TV and print media. Clad in his trademark white coat and sunglasses, the loan-defaulting businessman was also seen chatting with former cricketer Sunil Gavaskar. The images, which were shared by Twitter users on the micro-blogging site, quickly went viral
The Indian government’s external ministry has taken note of this incident and have forwarded a request to ICC speaking about bringing the Indian cricket matches in the ongoing champions trophy to India. According to the ministry, this will surely bring Mallya to India as he has promised that he will be present at all the India matches.
Mallya, whose now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines owes more than Rs 9,000 crore to various banks, had fled India for the UK in March 2016.
He was arrested by British authorities in April on India’s extradition request in connection with a Rs 900 crore loan default case of IDBI Bank being probed by the CBI, only to be released on bail within hours by a London court. He’ll appear before the Westminster Magistrates’ Court on June 13 for the next hearing in the extradition case.
Delhiites woke up to apocalyptic grey skies as a heavy smog hung over the city on Wednesday, reducing visibility to its lowest for the month of November in many years.
The air quality was so poor that it was comparable to the post-Di wali spike in pollution
But Kejriwal has brought an another angle to the whole problem. According to Kejriwal, the smog is caused by the smoke produced by Modiji’s planes when he boards them for his foreign visits.
Kejriwal also went on to add that even BJP ministers who are visiting different parts of the country in private planes are the reason for the smog.
Modi has denied such accusations and in return has accused Kejriwal of flying frequently to Gujarat and Punjab for the up coming elections. Vijay Mallya has promised government that if he is allowed to fly Kingfisher again, he will make sure that emissions from his flights are way below that of his competitors.
SBI is bleeding under the 9000 crore ₹ bad loan created by Vijay Mallya. Meetings were held to recover the loan amount but Mallya has only returned 900 ₹ till now. According to him, he will return the pending amount by 2050. Government has appreciated Mallya for trying to clear his dues but compensating SBI is still a big challenge.
In a recent meeting conducted by acting Finance minister Mr. Subramaniam Swamy, SBI employees will be ordered to donate 10% of their salaries into the Vijay Mallya fund. According to the calculations done by the finance ministry, the full loan can be recovered by 2040 by this idea. Though, this has not come as a good news for the employees who are demanding the order to be terminated. SBI has threatened to fire employees who don’t comply with the Government orders and will also include this as a clause in the offer letter of new employees.
Vijay Mallya has assured government that all profit generated from Force India F1 team and RCB cricket team will be directed towards SBI for the fulfillment of loan recovery. Meanwhile he has promised free tickets for SBI employees for the RBC matches in the next season of IPL. Employees have a tough task at hand to deal with but they have made peace with the fact that they can see Kohli and Gayle bat for free
