Congress wants Mallya back, raises slogans against the business baron

New Delhi: Congress members in Rajya Sabha on Monday again raised the issue of Vijay Mallya, who has allegedly defaulted on over Rs 9,000 crore bank loans, and demanded that the industrialist be brought back to India, along with former IPL chief Lalit Modi.

Congress members trooped in the Well and raised slogans half way through the Zero Hour after its member Pramod Tiwari raised the issue.

The party had raised the issue last week also. Tiwari, while raising the matter, claimed that the beleaguered industrialist was elected to the Rajya Sabha with BJP support.

Deputy Chairman P J Kurien said Tiwari's notice on the Mallya issue has not been accepted by Chairman Hamid Ansari. He also said that the matter should be referred to Ethics Committee of Rajya Sabha.

However, Congress members kept raising slogans like 'Vijay Mallya, Modi Ko Wapas Lao, Wapas Lao' from the Well. Amid their slogan shouting, some other members raised their Zero Hour mentions. The House was adjourned for a few minutes due to the din, just before the start of Question Hour at noon
