This government has consistently taken the worst possible course with me. Financial institutions in this country prevent me from repaying my debt. In Western countries, governments and banks help borrowers pay back their debts. But all my efforts to repay the debt in our country are blocked. This government is trying to take all my assets from me,” Vijay Mallya said in his tweet.
