Mumbai: Communist student leader and latest high profile victimhood player Kanhaiya Kumar today out bid everyone at an auction to buy Vijay Mallya’s luxury corporate jet, a modified Airbus A319, for $100 million.
The VT-VJM aircraft is a corporate jet having 25 passengers seating capacity and 6 crew seating capacity exclusively designed for exotic and luxurious use. The aircraft has attractive exterior and interior layout and design.
The auction process was carried out by the service tax department to recover over Rs.370 crores in dues and penalty from Vijay Mallya.
According to sources, after allegedly travelling in Business class from Pune to Mumbai, Kanhaiya Kumar realized that he is wasting a lot of time in boarding, waiting for other passengers, deboarding etc, a time that could have been better utilized in fighting capitalism. To cut out all those delays, he has decided to buy his own jet.
When reached for a comment, Kanhaiya’s PR manager said, “This corporate jet is not for personal benefit. It is a necessity for Kanhaiya as now-a-days he travels with an entourage everywhere to fight Capitalism and needs space for everyone. Also, this is needed for security purposes as more and more people are trying to attack him. As you know, last week someone tried to strangulate Kanhaiya by not offering him a window seat. This jet is much needed.”
Meanwhile, Vijay Mallya has also offered to sell some of his luxury homes to people fighting capitalism.
