Earlier, Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan defended his cabinet colleague and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley saying absconding businessman Vijay Mallya took "undue advantage of the FM's presence in Parliament corridor".
"On March 3, we heard from the media that he (Mallya) fled the country on March 2".

Claire Montgomery, representing Mallya, reiterated that the prosecution had failed to make out a case against her client. Originally, the lookout notice for him was to stop him and hand him over to the police.
The BJP leader requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to enquire about the matter.
Vijay Mallya, 62, who is fighting India's request to the United Kingdom to send him back, is wanted in India for defaulting on loans worth crores and money.

Bradley hasn't made the Masters since his exemption for winning the PGA ran out, but he'll be back at Augusta next April. It's tough to go from being on Ryder Cup teams, being on Presidents Cup teams, to outside the top 100 in the world.
Marking the conclusion of the trial, Westminster Magistrates' Court Judge Emma Arbuthnot fixed December 10 as the date on which she expects to deliver her verdict. "Besides this one sentence exchange where he misused his privilege as a Rajya Sabha Member, in order to further his commercial interest as a bank debtor, there is no question of my having ever given him an appointment to meet me", the Finance Minister said.
Jaitley said that he has not met the 62-year-old former Kingfisher Airline boss since 2014 but added that Mallya had "misused" his privilege of being a Member of the Rajya Sabha on one occasion.
The lawyer further said, "There is no evidence that Mallya or Kingfisher applied for bank loans with bad intent".
But when reporters asked Mallya about the condition of the jail after the video of his cell was presented to him by the Indian authorities, Mallya labelled it as "pretty impressive".
Once again the finance minister chose Facebook to post his reaction in response to Mallya's bombshell.
"In spite of this, the BJP government allowed him to flee with thousands of crores debt". Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said Mallya's revelation shows that the BJP is running "a travel, tour and immigration agency for looters to settle abroad".
Now the question will be asked as to why Jaitley did not disclose his the content of his conversation with Mallya before even if this had taken place inside the parliament premises. "Chowkidaar nahin, Bhagidaar hai (Not a watchman, but a partner)", he tweeted in Hindi.
