Mallya went on Twitter and congratulated the government on the coronavirus package and lamented that his repeated offers to repay his dues have been ignored.
“Congratulations to the government for a Covid-19 relief package. They can print as much currency as they want BUT should a small contributor like me who offers 100 percent payback of state-owned bank loans be constantly ignored? Please take my money unconditionally and close,” Mallya tweeted.
Soon after his offer, Twitter was ready to take his case and schooled him that it’s not how it works. A flurry of memes and jokes started trending on Twitter, mocking Mallya for his offer:
Mallya, promoter of the defunct Kingfisher Airlines, is wanted in India on alleged fraud and money laundering charges amounting to estimated Rs 9,000 crore.
In the past, Mallya had tweeted that he had offered to pay 100 percent of the amount borrowed by Kingfisher Airlines to the banks but neither banks were willing to take the money nor the Enforcement Directorate was willing to release his attached assets at the behest of the banks.
Mallya also faces extradition now
Meanwhile, as per the latest reports, Mallya has lost the application to appeal against his extradition to India in the U.K Supreme Court.
With this, Mallya has exhausted all his legal options and he can now be extradited in 28 days. UK Home Secretary Priti Patel will now take a final call to formally certify the court order for Vijay Mallya to be extradited to India.
