Liquor baron Vijay Mallya, who is fighting against extradition to India has asked the government to accept his offer to repay all of his loan dues unconditionally and close the case against him.
Mallya went on Twitter and congratulated the government on the coronavirus package and then claimed that his repeated request to pay everything back has bee ignored by the centre.
Congratulations to the Government for a Covid 19 relief package. They can print as much currency as they want BUT should a small contributor like me who offers 100% payback of State owned Bank loans be constantly ignored ? Please take my money unconditionally and close.— Vijay Mallya (@TheVijayMallya) May 14, 2020
His plea might get ignored by the govt. again but Twitter heard him alright.

He committed fraud, so usually the punishment for that is jail + damages which is amount stolen + interest + some. He’s not offering full amount or accepting guilt for fraudulently taking loans and not repaying creditors. This is for show.— Sonali Gupta (@sonali425) May 14, 2020
This is not the first time Mallya has alleged that he has offered to pay the full amount he owes but neither the banks were willing to take the money nor the Enforcement Directorate was willing to release his attached assets at the behest of the banks.
