Never gave Vijay Mallya any appointment: Arun Jaitley

Rahul accuses Jaitley of colluding with ‘criminal’ Mallya

Jaitley, she noted, had already explained as to how Mallya misused his privilege as a Member of Parliament to speak to him. Otherwise, nobody can stop you. Rahul alleged and challenged Jaitley to get CCTV footage of 1 March. This provided the opposition some fodder to target Jaitley and the Congress said that the revelations were an embarrassment to the government.

Besides, the probe was in an initial stage and the CBI was collecting documents from the IDBI in the Rs 900 crore loan default case, they said.

Hitting out at the Congress, she said letters were written to the Reserve Bank of India and State Bank of India during the UPA's rule to help Mallya.

Mallya had Wednesday claimed in London that he had met the finance minister before leaving for the United Kingdom, drawing a rebuttal from Jaitley who said he never gave him any appointment but the businessman used his privilege as an MP to accost him in Parliament.

Seeking to shift the blame, the BJP leaders including top Union ministers alleged many Congress leaders had tried to save Mallya and his sinking business empire.

Rebutting Mallya's claims, Jaitley told ANI on Wednesday: "I have seen the statement of Vijay Mallya where he claims to have met me with an offer of settlement". The UPA government passed some laws but never made rules, she said.

Woodward: Mattis, Kelly denials of his book quotes on Trump untrue
Woodward goes on to say that he's "never seen an instance when the president is so detached from the reality of what's going on". The tweets attracted widespread attention and concern - "the Internet lost its collective mind", as Woodward wrote in his book.

Railway Minister Piyush Goyal said Mallya was a criminal and his words could not be taken seriously and it was Rahul who should resign from all posts.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi demanded an immediate investigation into the "extremely serious" allegations and resignation of Mr. Jaitley.

The statement from the Finance Minister came minutes after Mallya claimed that met Jaitley before fleeing out of the country and offered to settle the amount he owed to the banks.

According to The Times of London , tennis' top umpires are considering a boycott of future matches involving Williams. Williams was fined $17,000 , which is deducted from her prize money of $1.85 million as the tournament's runner-up.

Rahul Gandhi has blamed the government that Modi government has lied on Rafale and now the government is lying about Vijay Mallya.

Speaking to The Indian Express today, Dave said that in his meeting that Sunday, he "advised SBI to approach the Supreme Court on February 29, 2016, for getting an order restraining Mallya from leaving the country..."

Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh's Shia Central Waqf Board chairperson Waseem Rizvi told ANI that Gandhi and Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad had put pressure on him not to complain against Mallya for allegedly encroaching upon a property owned by Shia Waqf Board near Meerut.

Wildfire that closed California interstate explodes in size
Latest numbers from the Shasta-Trinity National Forest show the fire has now burned approximately 22,000 acres of land and is still 0 percent contained.

The CBI issued a fresh LoC against Mallya in the last week of November, 2015 asking airport authorities across the country to "inform" it about Mallya's movements, thus replacing its previous circular which had sought detention of the businessman if he attempted to leave the country, they said.
