“It has been a very special Eid. who had been forced to follow on after being bowled out for 138 in the first innings, which marks his first project with superstar SRK and leading lady Anushka Sharma. Mallya raises several crucial points in the statement.These are; 1) The ED’s action of attaching his and one of his company’s assets in India in the Kingfisher case is legally not valid 2) The ED action makes raising resources by selling his assets to repay banks even more difficult now 3) The ED/CBI have already been given all documents including money trail through bank accounts in the Kingfisher loan to prove that the money has been used for legitimate purposes hence no misappropriation of the funds is done and finally 4) He never refused to appear before the ED (the premise of the agency’s request for NBW against him) but only sought time to sell his assets Here Mallya is listing his logical arguments to sway the public opinion in his favour and portray that he is being hunted for no adequate reasons The investigators’ inability to nail Mallya in this case on charges of serious financial fraud with rock solid evidence is proven when the UK denied the deportation request of Mallya and the Interpol’s hesitance to issue a red corner notice on him So far the ED has only managed to persuade the Indian government to revoke Mallya’s passport using its influence and taking advantage of the public political and media pressure on this high profile case but doesn’t have a well-woven net yet to catch the big fish All this is happening when there is a case going on in the Supreme Court between Banks vs Mallya on the loan recovery and when the CBI maintains that it doesn’t have a strong case yet against Mallya Even when the ED is moving on its own in the case the CBI is initiating another round of investigation by setting up a special team Mallya is probably clearer in his head than the investigators about the course of the Kingfisher case His strategy is to make his points through well-timed point by point presentations and claims to contest each and every hurried move by the ED that seems to operate under significant pressure The ED’s hurried actions of chasing his assets back home for a significantly smaller amount (compared to the actual loan amount) has given Mallya more reasons to make his case that why it is even more difficult to pay back the money now selling his assets which is precisely what he did soon after the ED action The reason why banks rejected Mallya’s offer to pay Rs 4000 crore is that lenders do not want to settle for anything less than the whole amount The first excuse for Mallya for not returning to the country was given when his passport was revoked after heleft for UK on 2 March Mallya has duly used that opportunity as well His strategy based on facts coupled with emotional appeals of a failed businessman (in the Kingfisher case) would eventually sway the public opinion in his favour The witch-hunting by ED so far seen as a battle to save the public money will be increasingly seen with suspicion of bias Mallya has even questioned the CBI decision to set up a special team to investigate the Kingfisher case “After months of investigation which included personal interviews with me the CBI is reported to have now constituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to further investigate Kingfisher Airlines and myself It is indeed sad and disappointing that the thousands of documents submitted by us and interrogation of several executives seem insufficient to convince them there has been no wrongdoing” Mallya said in the statement It’s not to say that Mallya would have had a change of mind and returned to the country to pay up banks if the ED didn’t initiate the actions It is pretty clear that the liquor-baron wouldn’t give an easy win to the banks and investigators anyway—something he made abundantly clear in his interview with Financial Times saying “by arresting me or taking my passport they aren’t getting any money” But cornering Mallya with convincing evidence (such as money trail to prove misuse of funds) would have left him no room to play the victim card before the public and the court of law This is something Firstpost had noted earlier In a war mere strength will not destroy the enemy the battle of strategy is equally important Mallya realises this more than his ‘enemies’ If getting back the Rs 9000 crore from Mallya is the primary goal (and subsequently making him face the law on alleged wrongdoings) the investigators should be made aware about something called the time value of the money In this case the original loan amount drawn by Kingfisher was about Rs 6900 crore but the loan outstanding today stands around Rs 9000 crore on account of the interest accrued Since the case is now being dealt by the Supreme Court it would have made far more sense for the ED to furnish evidences of financial crime by Mallya (if they have any) before the court and establish his wrongdoing before moving to revoke his passport and attach his domestic assets It is doubtful whether they have done so so far Remember only two banks in the 17- lender consortium have so far tagged Mallya as a wilful defaulter Also the stance of a section of banks including IDBI Bank that there is evidence of fund diversion by Mallya weakens the case In this backdrop Mallya should have then given a final deadline to return and pay back before initiating the final assault But the lethal weapons were fired before assessing the weak points and position of the enemy The target is intact so far Equally important is to identify the officials (bankers and bureaucrats) who might have helped Mallya flout the rules to get such a huge loan to an airline that has never made profit and against guarantees such as Kingfisher brand trademarks Did he receive political help to secure the loan in the first place get a softer handling by banks for four long years and finally escape the country just in time before all hell broke loose There are several unanswered questions By: Express News Service | Published: July 15 2014 12:38 am Related News One of the Modi government’s first actions in power was to choose a principal secretary to the prime minister In the eagerness to appoint Nripendra Misra however it overlooked the fact that as a former chairman of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India Misra was ineligible to join government Its immediate and troubling reflex was to issue an ordinance changing the act Opposition parties rightly criticised the use of an executive order a blunt power given to the government to meet emergent situations merely to appoint one civil servant There was some uncertainty about its passing and the possibility of a joint session of Parliament because despite the BJP’s overwhelming majority in the Lok Sabha it needs to cobble support in the Rajya Sabha But many of these parties have now decided not to contest the bill which will ratify that ordinance The bill was passed by Lok Sabha on Monday and will in all likelihood not face hurdles in Rajya Sabha either The NCP and Left have allowed the bill to pass and even the TMC which resolutely opposed the government’s move did not press its protest This is a sensible decision given that the Trai’s strictures on post-retirement employment in the government intended to guard regulatory independence may indeed be too harsh This caution does not apply to other regulators set up later like Sebi and the Competition Commission There is a reasonable case for the amendment and what’s more opposition parties gain little by resisting every move of the Modi government It may be more pragmatic and indeed more productive for the opposition to choose its battles carefully Given the balance of power in Parliament they will need to save their energies for the issues that matter be artful and make sure that obstruction does not overwhelm legislative business The government on the other hand has not displayed its better instincts It used brute force at the earliest opportunity when a parliamentary discussion was only a few weeks away and would have been easily won Ordinances are emergency instruments used in situations of crisis and gridlock Their use peaked in the mid-1990s under unstable coalition governments For a government with a single-party majority to use an ordinance for a matter as small as a single bureaucratic appointment suggests that it still has to learn where to apply force and to what extent For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More

NewsMumbai: From being a vegetable vendor at Mumbai’s Byculla market to becoming one of the most influential names in the corridors of power in Maharashtra the rise of Chhagan Bhujbal political and financial empire has been phenomenal in the last four decadesNCP leader Chhagan Bhujbal PTI Bhujbal who started his political career with Shiv Sena in the 60s after he was inspired by Bal Thackeray’s fiery speeches was first elected as a corporator from Mazgaon in 1973 Subsequently he was made Mumbai’s mayor by then Sena supremo Balasaheb Thackeray for two times in 1985 and 1990 He was a vegetable vendor at the Byculla market before entering politics His mother used to sell fruits in a small shop in the same market Although Bhujbal had pursued a two-year diploma course in mechanical and electrical engineering at the VJTI Bombay he did not complete it and left mid-way after a year But soon enough he established himself as a firebrand leader and was among the earliest MLAs of Shiv Sena elected from Mazgaon assembly segment first in 1985 and again in 1990 Despite his consecutive victory in 1990 Bhujbal was reportedly unhappy with the party’s decision of not to appoint him as the opposition leader and also with the treatment meted out to him Following this he along with a few of his fellow MLAs joined the Congress and was made a cabinet minister Bhujbal wasn’t lucky the third time when it came to state polls After he lost the election in 1995 to Sena’s Bala Nandgaokar now an Maharashtra Navnirman Sena leader Bhujbal shifted his base from Mumbai to Yeola in Nashik In 1999 when Sharad Pawar quit Congress and formed NCP Bhujbal followed him When the Congress-NCP coalition formed the government in 1999 Bhujbal was made deputy chief minister Subsequently a controversy surrounded him over the arrest of Sena supremo Bal Thackeray Also he was at the centre of controversy in the multi-crore stamp paper scam also known as the Telgi scam But Bhujbal was given clean chit following a thorough investigation While his political graph rose steadily it was also accompanied by financial growth A look at the election affidavits filed by Bhujbal show that his assets grew from Rs 119 crore in 2009 to Rs 21 crore in 2014 However Bhujbal’s assets are now believed to be worth over Rs 2500 crore after the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) raided his properties in various places in the state after registering two FIRs His son Pankaj nephew Samir and other relatives are also stakeholders in that fortune However Bhujbal in a statement issued on Wednesday said that the ACB is defaming him and his family by providing false and inflated value of his properties It will have an adverse impact on the ongoing probe he said The ACB of Maharashtra Police registered the FIRs against Bhujbal last week for alleged irregularities in allotment of a prime plot at Kalina in Mumbai to a developer and for large-scale irregularities in the construction of the new Maharashtra Sadan in New Delhi Following the FIRs the ACB raided his properties in Mumbai Thane Navi Mumbai Nashik and Pune Kirit Somaiya a BJP leader and a MP from Mumbai said the valuation of Bhujbal’s properties is much higher than what is being shown now "The valuation of properties which are in public domain must be around more than over Rs 3500 crores However there could other unknown and benami properties belonging him which can be identified by investigating agencies It will show that he has property much higher than what is being talked about now" said Somaiya who had lodged a complaint against Bhujbal Earlier this week Somaiya met Enforcement Directorate officials and shared information about Bhujbal’s financial transactions including foreign and hawala and those concerning coal mines While giving details the MP also demanded an investigation to unearth the actual picture of properties amassed by Bhujbal and his kin Political watchers say that most of the properties raided by ACB recently are immovable properties There could be movable properties as well which can be figured out only after a threadbare investigation Assumptions are ripe that Bhujbal might have transferred some money to unknown accounts through hawala "There are many benami properties in Nashik and Mumbai and other places Given his 40 years career in politics this is just a small amount which does not even match his stature He must have properties much higher than the existing ones" said a political observer from Nashik "We complained to the ACB about Bhujbal’s disproportionate assets worth over Rs 2500 crore But this is just a tip of the iceberg and we feel that he has much more than this Bhujbal’s disproportionate assets worth thousands of crores are proof that there must have been huge cases on kickbacks and we hope the SIT can unearth the loot" said Preeti Sharma Menon national spokesperson of the Aam Aadmi Party It’s not fun walking in and then walking out without them, Officials warned
