We have named and shamed him in private: Arun Jaitley on Vijay Mallya

10, Oct 2018 By Santosh Pradhan

Queen director Vikas Bahl, who has been accused of sexual harassment by a former employee of Phantom Films, has now sent legal notices to filmmakers Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane. Anurag had told on Twitter that when he came to know about Vikas’s acts, he had named and shamed him in private. This was a troll material for everyone on Twitter. But the statement was helpful for the Finance ministry. Arun Jaitley has come out in open and said that his government had named and shamed Vijay Mallya in Private and those details cannot be told in public. DpFgX7jU8AAT_ba

Arun Jaitley said to Faking News reporter,” When we came to know about his loan default, I had sent people to his place who named him and shamed him in front of his family. What else can you expect from a Finance Minister? I had to teach him a moral lesson, which I did. Court cases and money recovery is one thing, but by naming and shaming the person in private you teach him values and moral code of conduct which I and my team did.”

I have full faith that Mallya will be a changed person once he returns to India and he will definitely return all the money”, Jaitley added. This gives out a strong message to the people who thought that the Finance Ministry did nothing to stop Mallya from fleeing the country.
