Mallya, the crorepati defaulter who faces near certainty in being extradited to India has opened up his thoughts in a series of tweets.

The tweets made on Valentine's day, mentions India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The 62 year old former liquor baron's extradition had been sought majorly on the reason of non payment of dues estimated at Rs 9,000 crores.

But, Mallya believes that he has made available all the money to his lendors.

In a series of tweets directed at the Prime Minister, the media as well as Public opinion, Mallya has tried to clarify that he has all the money that the banks are in quest of.

Here are Mallya's tweets:

The wilful defaulter's defunct Kingfisher Airlines sought huge loans and did not repay various banks. Ever since Mallya left Indian shores on March 2016, banks are in the dark on the prospects of getting their principal back.

UK's home office signed an order for extraditing Vijay Mallya on February 4. The businessman has maintained that he would appeal against the order.
