Defiant Vijay Mallya, who is facing money laundering charges in multi-crore fraud case in India claimed that he met the finance minster before leaving the country.
Speaking outside a London court, Mallya said, “I left because I had a scheduled meeting in Geneva. I met the finance minister before I left, repeated my offer to settle with the banks. That is the truth.” came, I saw, I conquered”, Julius Caesar is said to have written after the Battle of Zela. The Congress party thinks the title of Vijay Mallya’s memoir would be similar — with a couple of differences, reflecting recent allegations against Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

“I came (to Parliament), I saw (Arun Jaitley), I fled (to London),” reads the imaginary cover tweeted by the Congress’s handle today. In the top left corner, there’s even a logo: A small bird. No prizes for guessing the reference. In another development, Mallya has expressed his satisfaction over the revived cell of Arthur Road jail in Mumbai, where he is likely to be incarcerated on his return. However, Jaitley has refuted the allegation levelled by Mallya against him by saying that Mallya never met him.
