I Am The Football, Unfortunately No Referees, Says Vijay Mallya
Liquor baron and founder of now defunct Kingfisher Airlines Vijay Mallya expressed shock over media reports - reportedly based on CBI’s claim - that he might have influenced his power to get loans from banks and lenders through dubious mean.
"I am shocked at CBI allegations. All false and misconceived to say the least what do a bunch of elite police know about business and economics?" Mallya tweeted.

"Media happily being used as the pitch, I am the football. Two fiercely competitive teams NDA versus UPA playing. Unfortunately no referees," his tweet reads.

Referring to Dayanidhi Maran's case, he tweeted, "CBI made such a great drama accusing the Maran's and putting them to great harm. What finally happened. Did truth prevail or CBI prevail?"
