Mumbai: The flamboyant businessman facing the charges of debt non-payment for various Government and Private banks of India has spoken about India again. He has left India without completing his debt obligations and has settled in the UK. Reports claim that India is making extradition efforts to bring the tainted businessman back to India from the UK. Subsequent to which, he could be prosecuted for the pending charges against him.
Mallya even after being into legal litigations, is enjoying his luxurious and extravagant life in the UK. One of the appearances he made was in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 where he was seen watching the final match in the VIP area of the stadium in The Oval, London.
The latest is in the Wednesday’s Formula One Promotional Event in London. When asked about if he misses India, he said “There’s nothing to miss. All my immediate family is either in England or the US. Nobody in India at all. As far as my step-siblings are concerned, they are all UK citizens. So there’s nothing family-wise to miss”.
“This witch hunt against me has been going on for a while. So it isn’t as if I have any emotional ups and downs. I have done absolutely nothing wrong.” added the the member of World Motor Sport Council, Vijay Mallya. Commenting indirectly on Indian court, he said “In fact, I am glad that it is before a UK court and an ‘impartial’ court. So we wait and see how it plays out”
Mallya is also, reportedly, planning to dump ‘India’ from his Formula One ‘Force India’ team. “Things have changed. Force India is getting very limited in terms of potential. The Indian Grand Pix is gone, sadly. There are no Indian sponsors who’ve come to the table. They seem to be spending all their money on cricket,” said Vijay Mallya giving reasons for pulling off India from his Formula One team name.
