The British court said “Indian jails are not good enough for Vijay Mallya”! But you’ll salute PM Modi after how he responded to the British Prime Minister Theresa May on this

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj shared that after disgraced industrialist Vijay Mallya complained that Indian jails were in poor condition, a British court suggested a team would inspect them.

The issue came up for discussion during Theresa May’s meeting with PM Modi. According to Swaraj, Modi told May that these were the same jails where the British had imprisoned Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru and others. “For your courts to question the conditions in these same jails is therefore not correct,” Modi, according to Swaraj, told May.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj revealed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had given a strong retort to his British counterpart Theresa May on Vijay Mallya’s extradition case.

“PM Modi told British Prime Minister that UK courts asking about the condition of Indian jails is not right, as these are the same prisons where they had jailed our leaders like Gandhi and Nehru,” she said while addressing the media on the completion of four years of the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre. PM Modi’s message to May was conveyed when the two leaders met in London in April 2018, during the meeting of Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) and had discussed Mallya`s extradition, wherein he had complained to the UK courts about the conditions of Indian jails.

“We have sent out Mallya`s extradition request. One of the cases in the court is by the State Bank of India (SBI) consortium, which involves 12 banks. They have won the case and the money can now be recovered,” Swaraj added.

As an Indian, I feel proud today that our honorable PM Narendra Modi has made such an impactful, tactical but true statement to his British counterpart. The English courts must now think deeply before passing any judgment on Indian jail conditions. What a brilliant answer by our PM. British must feel from their hearts! What injustices were done to us – Indians and now, Vijay Mallya must be deported back by them.

Yes, he was practical and realized that fighting British outside the jail yields more than doing nothing from inside it. Savarkar was marked as the most dangerous prisoner by Britishers and was held responsible for every rebellion and was tortured on a daily basis!! But it would have been more truthful if the statement had been authenticated at the time of the visit itself with both the government and British media giving a befitting reply to the absconded Mallya.

British Government whoever runs it should change their attitude. Do they want Jaills to be Guest Houses for criminals? Especially for Financial offenders like these. First of all why they are not repatriating Financial Offenders of other countries when they are asked by those governments?
