Congress leaders in Bihar burn Jaitley’s effigy

Patna: Bihar Congress leaders here Thursday burnt an effigy of Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, following the claim of Vijay Mallya that he had met the senior BJP leader before leaving the country.

BPCC leaders, including its working president Kaukab Qadri, party MLC Prem Chandra Mishra, MLA and Mahila Congress state president Amita Bhushan and former state president Anil Sharma took part in the demonstration held at Boring Road crossing in the city, a party release said.

The release quoted the leaders as having said “the Congress has always been maintaining that Mallya has close links with Jaitley …”.

Mallya claimed in London on Wednesday that he met the Finance minister before leaving India and offered to settle his dues, a charge denied by Jaitley as “false”.
