As fugitive businessman Vijay Mallya on Wednesday said he had met Finance Minister Arun Jaitley before leaving the country, the Congress took a dig at him dubbing him as "fiscal mismanagement blog minister".
The Congress party also said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is running a "tour, travels and immigration" agency for "loot, scoot and settle abroad" brigade.
"After Mallya reveals his 'consultation meetings' before his smooth escape, with Fiscal Mismanagement Blog Minister Sh Jaitley - one thing is clear - BJP is running 'tour, travels and immigration' agency for 'loot, scoot and settle abroad' brigade," Randeep Singh Surjewala tweeted.
"I had a scheduled meeting in Geneva. I met the Finance Minister before I left...repeated my offer to settle with the banks. That is the truth," he told reporters outside a Westminster court where he is contesting an extradition case filed by Indian authorities.
