BJP accuses Manmohan Singh: Congress has again surrounded with controversies over accused of alleged helping Vijay Mallya by former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Bhartiya Janata Party has blamed on Monday Manmohan Singh of assisting liquor baron Vijay Mallya to get huge loans for Kingfisher Airlines.
Mallya had written a letter to Manmohan to assist him
As per BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra, Mallya had written letters to Singh which revealed the former PM helped him to bail out Kingfisher.
“A bailout package was given to Kingfisher Airlines on Manmohan Singh’s insistence.” Patra alleged not only that, only on the former PM’s insistence the Income Tax Department went soft on Mallya and his accounts were also unfrozen.
“The often asked question has been why Mallya was given a loan of Rs 9,000 crore despite very poor rating of the company; their accounts not being in order. Were their certain hands pulling the strings from behind,” Patra said.
BJP accuses Manmohan Singh: We have several evidences which show that Singh helped Mallya, says Patra
“We have certain emails, letters and correspondence that will expose these hands. Again and again, the kind indulgence of the then PM was sought by Mallya,” claimed Patra.
BJP has believed and claimed that the Congress and the former Prime Minister Singh have helped Mallya to win the Rajya Sabha election in 2010 as an independent candidate.
