NEW DELHI: Absconding liquor baron Vijay Mallya on Sunday snubbed Narendra Modi’s pro technology rhetoric and said that he hopes the Prime Minister can guarantee that investigating agencies are impartial and the enforcement agencies embrace his calls for use of technology in the new year. 

In a series of tweets, Mallya said the Prime Minister advocates about the use of technology while the enforcement agencies don’t take his words seriously and refuse to use technology. 

He also asked the “dynamic, forward thinking, and corruption free” Prime Minister to guarantee that investigative agencies under his control are fair, impartial and legal.

“In 2017 I would only hope that PM Modi Ji's vision can be correctly fairly legally and impartially executed by his Government. Our esteemed PM speaks about use of technology even for farmers. Wonder why enforcement agencies refuse use of technology,” he tweeted.

“Will our dynamic forward thinking corruption free PM care to guarantee that criminal agencies under his control are fair impartial and legal,” he added.

The absconding liquor baron is facing loan default case of over Rs. 9,000 crores. 

The former Rajya Sabha MP, who in March escaped out of India last March and is reportedly living in London, is wanted by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). The government and the RBI have hinted at going hard at the fugitive business tycoon.
