NEW DELHI: Fugitive liquor baron Vijay Mallya and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had a “15-minute sit-down meeting in parliament” just two days before the fugitive tycoon’s flight to the UK, Congress president Rahul Gandhi alleged on Thursday, citing a party MP who claims CCTV evidence of the meeting.

“Arun Jaitley is lying, Congress leader PL Puniya witnessed his meeting with Vijay Mallya,” Rahul said.

On Wednesday Jaitley had rubbished Mallya’s claim that he had met him before leaving for London in 2016.

Puniya said he had seen Mallya and Jaitley speak in the Central Hall of parliament in March 2016, days before the Kingfisher boss flew out of India as banks sought over Rs90 billion of unpaid loans from him.

The BJP has mounted a fierce counter-attack against the Congress.
