After Naresh Goyal’s takeoff from Jet Airways, Vijay Mallya rehashed his idea on Tuesday and asked PSU (public sector) banks to accept his cash as it could assist them with saving money stripped Jet.
Vijay Mallya Tweets to Take His Money, Save Jet Airways
Goyal alongside his better half Anita ventured down on Monday following which lenders consented to siphon in Rs 1,500 crore to ransom the financially troubled airline.
In a series of tweets posted in the early hours, Mallya said, “Happy to see that PSU Banks have bailed out Jet Airways saving jobs, connectivity and enterprise. Only wish the same was done for Kingfisher.”
Repeating his offer, Mallya added, “I have placed liquid assets before the Hon’ble Karnataka High Court to pay off the PSU Banks and all other creditors. Why do the Banks not take my money. It will help them to save Jet Airways if nothing else.”
The embattled liquor baron also said that, “I invested over Rs 4,000 crore into Kingfisher Airlines to save the Company and its employees. Not recognised and instead slammed in every possible way. The same PSU Banks let India’s finest airline with the best employees and connectivity fail ruthlessly. Double standards under NDA.”
Jet has been seeing a wounding challenge from the low-cost aircraft, fluctuating unrefined prices and a weak rupee. The aircraft, which is in gigantic obligation, need to reimburse money to banks, lessors, and providers other than clearing pending pay rates to its pilots.
Mallya is right now confronting removal to India from the UK. A month ago Mallya, who is needed in India on supposed misrepresentation and illegal tax avoidance charges adding up to an expected Rs 9,000 crore, had recorded his application in the UK High Court, looking for authorization to bid against a removal request marked by the British Home Secretary.
